Anything electrical can fail, no matter how much testing was done.
Tritium vials can fail in night sights, but you still have a usable sight to aim with, even if the tritium goes dim.
If your electronic optics fail, you're stuck with point and shoot with a loss of accuracy (what you seem to want to gain), and a useless hunk of glass and metal on top of your slide.
And good luck with selling that pistol with a regrooved slide to fit your trijicon rmr, if indeed you ever wanted to sell it.
As far as putting too much money into your EMP;
I invested $800 for mods done by SACS for my EMP, damn near what the pistol cost me.
But the gun is exactly the way I want it and it meets my needs.
Just train and shoot with iron sights, that way you won't need an oversized electronic device to make up for your lack of confidence to shoot your carry pistol.
We can do the sarcasm bit all day long..
As stated, it is your pistol, do as you wish..
You asked for opinions and I gave you one..
Take it or leave it...
Oh, and welcome to the forum..
