We brought back our friend and expert firearms instructor, Ken Hackathorn, to discuss red dots, specifically on handguns. Is a red dot sight on an everyday carry pistol an absolute necessity? What are the pros and cons?

During our SOTG Homeroom from SOTGU.com, we will examine the recent attack on a noted bishop in a church in Sydney, Australia. This was the second mass stabbing attack in 48 hours.

For our Tech Talk from EOTech Inc. we will consider capped/recessed adjustment knobs versus the external turrets. Which one is the best choice for you? Also, we have another Pro Tip from FrogLube.

Thanks for being a part of SOTG! We hope you find value in the message we share. If you’ve got any questions, here are some options to contact us:

From www.bbc.com/news:

A 16-year-old boy has been arrested after a bishop and several churchgoers were stabbed during a sermon in Sydney.

The incident happened on Monday evening at the Christ The Good Shepherd Church in the suburb of Wakeley.

At least four people were stabbed but police said none of their injuries were life-threatening.

The incident triggered unrest as hundreds gathered outside the church, clashing with police – two of whom were injured.

Vehicles were damaged as people threw stones, bricks and bottles and, according to Reuters news agency, police fired pepper spray.

Witnesses said the people gathered were demanding for the attacker to be brought outside.

Police said they had responded in numbers to the incident and urged the public to keep away from the area.
