    the cons are they could well get knocked off sight when scrambeling thru the bush and the rifle and lazer are nolonger poiniting to the same point
    bang - dead dog.

    mount them solidly and it wont be an issue. not with the pathetic alloy barrel mounts they come with

    I always found them to be a waste of time unless you are useing them with NVG`s. Just something else to carry and most don`t hold point of aim very long at all.

    I am going to be doing short range shooting. Would you rate them less than a red dot sight? or would you rather just use a scope, or iron sights?

    I`d rate them below a Red dot & I prefer a Scope or open sights. I do use a Laser with Night Vision Goggles at short range out to about 80mts as you cannot use a scope or open sights with headmounted NVG`s so options are limited there.

    Yep can do. I know Stags don`t like being hit in the eye with one. If they are light shy they bugger off pertty quickly with a laser.
