So if one was intrigued by these ideas and had decided to subscribe to the newsletter, but wanted to do it as cheaply as possible, any recommendations on red dots?

Cheap? Vortex Viper or Burris.
My preference is for bigger dots, using a 6moa Viper with no issues yet.

Deltapoint Pro 2.5MOA. About 350. The RTS2 is similar in price, though I don't like it as much due to the blue tinted lens and seemingly unending list of problems. I have a Burris fastfire and it has been great, especially for the sub-$200 price tag. I have heard mixed reviews regarding their durability as slide ride dots though.

Another vote for the Delta Point Pro. I have had one on a G17 MOS for over a year with no issues.

Yup, I have two DP Pro's. I think it's the best dot on the market so far. Easy to sight in, easy adjustments, and no removal for battery changes.

Based on the above unanimous endorsements, if I had any desire whatsoever to shoot this thing in a match, I would buy one immediately. 

 

As it stands, I found the Burris FastFire II at Cabela's for $150, and less than half the price is pretty tempting.  On the other hand, it's 4 MOA instead of 2.5 MOA and obviously less nice overall.  More contemplation is required, probably until they sell out of the FFII deal I mentioned above and make the decision for me by default.

The fastfire is still a great little dot, and even if you decide you don't love it on the pistol it would be excellent as a 45* dot on a rifle, on a shotgun, on a steel challenge 22, a PCC, etc. For that cheap I would probably pick one up just to have an extra dot laying around

Echoing recommendation for DPP 2.5 MOA

It’s a fantastic dot.
I won an IDPA match once. It was neat.
