That said, there is one area in which the red dots may stand to help with the phenomenon - you're supposed to do the reverse of what you do with iron sights, and that is keep your eyes focused on the target instead of the aiming dot. Gone is the span of time between deciding the target is doing something that requires shooting and shifting back to the front sight and its alignment with the rear, which (a.) a lot of people don't do under extreme stress which is why combat accuracy is generally poor; (b.) older folks with distance-corrected eyes often CAN'T do very quickly or well; and (c.) allows continued perception of the target's actions all the way to bullet delivery - potentially helping with justification of the shoot/don't shoot process. Essentially, the tunnel vision is still there, but maybe you can now operate more effectively while in it.
I’ve gotten away from focusing on the front sight of a handgun (or red dot). You can’t shoot fast focusing on a point at the end of your hand. It was an epiphany when I realized two things:-The fight is “out there”, so focus on the fight. -Focusing on the front sight is slow. Teaching to concentrate focus on the front sight after initial understanding/learning of sight picture/alignment is both antiquated and detrimental to improving a shooters speed and situational awareness. I see the front sight/red dot. I use the front sight/red dot. I don’t FOCUS on the front sight/red dot.
