Default Which Red Dot for a Handgun?

Which brand Red Dot have you used with a handgun, and what are the pro's and con's of them?

Any and all info is appreciated.

Jaybe, I don't have much experience with Red Dots, especially on handguns! I did buy a Bushnell for my AR-15, and if it works good for it, I'm thinking of trying one on my RSRH .44 magnum!
I got the Bushnell at for about 80.00! It looks good so far, if it holds up on the AR, I'll try one on my hunting handgun! (although I think the .44 RSRH will be harder on the scope than the AR is!)

What handgun and in what chambering and how much do you want to spend?

Red dots are like scopes. Usually you get what you pay for.

Aimpoint and eotech are two of very good quality that will stand up to big recoil.

Zeiss also makes a very compact red dot that has dual power, solar and lithium battery. The battery isn't used unless there isn't sufficient light for the solar panel thus greatly extending battery life.
