I know LPVOs are the current "in" thing. However, as I have begun to tactically analyze them, I have come to realize there are significant problems associated with them:
Consider this: you're dialed in at 8x on a distance target, and suddenly a threat pops up danger close. You are not going to have time to break your grip and adjust the zoom on your LPVO. You need to be able to engage NOW. This means that you are still going to need either offset irons or an offset red dot. This, in turn, means that the LPVO's ability to go to 1x zoom is now redundant. In fact, I would say that the entire 1-3x range of its zoom is now redundant, as at this range a simple red dot is sufficient.
So, taking the above in mind, the useful tactical zoom of your LPVO now starts at 4x, AND you are still going to need offset irons or a red dot. At that point, why not get a 4-12x scope instead that will have better max zoom and better glass clarity? A traditional 4-12x scope is also often substantially cheaper and lighter weight than an LPVO due to the LPVO's use of a heavy prism. Considering all that, why cripple your performance by using an LPVO? Tactically, you can do better with a 4-12x scope and an offset red dot.
