Very nice
How is does the weapon feel with all that weight up top, cause it looks top heavy.
Does it feel off balance at all?

also, do you feel a laser and a red dot is overkill?

It is a bit top heavy, but it's not really a problem. I think it's be a bigger issue if I short barreled it.

I did this right away when I got the gun, so I can't really remember what it was like to hold one with only the stock sight.

The laser is for home defense distances. I have it set for 7 yards. At those distances, the dot is actually below the eotech circle because the Eotech is set for 50 yards. So, up close, I can make a lot more accurate shot at that distance than if I guessed how off the eotech would be at up close distances. At 25 yards, it is 2 inches low. It would be even lower at 7 yards.

So, I don't think it's overkill. Plus, w/ the laser, U don't have to bring the gun up to eye level if U needed to shoot it.

I always liked the laser over a red dot just for the reason that you could fire it with out bringing it up to your eye.

I put a red dot on my storm since that seemed to be what everybody was doing - i still can't figure out what it's benefit is over a laser
Is it the limited range of a laser?

forgot to mention that i really like the ps90 as a center piece on your table, i wonder if my wife would go for that for the next holiday :wink:

Well, the laser is only practical at night, or inside, or outside on the day at close distances. So, I think it would be a mistake to ONLY have the laser. I guess U could leave the stock sight on and add a laser. But, each have their place. I couldn't make 50 yard shots w/ my laser at my outdoor range.

Plus, the Eotech is a bit better than just a regular red dot. I love the 1MOA dot in the center. Most red dots are 4MOA at the smallest.

As for the table. Yes. It is the new centerpiece. Then, when I get an AR, we'll alternate it every other week :) :lol:
