T8 vs T9

Do you feel like you need those?
A scope, even with first strike rounds, is almost pointless. A dot sight though can be useful. You can get a sight rail to put on your T8 through UMS.

It's not going to massively boost your accuracy. Not enough to justify the extra expense of a T9.
I have both a T8 and T9. I like the compactness of the T8. I am just about as accurate with my T8 as my T9 because I practice. I don't think it is necessary to jump to a T9 unless you want the look or versatility of the T9 (pistol/rifle/smg look and mag/hopper fed options). If you are strictly using First Strike rounds, you aren't going to take advantage of a lot of the T9's functionality. Therefore I don't think the cost is totally worth it.

Sorry when I said scope, I meant like a red dot. I was mainly looking at the T9 because of the stock. More of a steady shot with the stock than without. I don't care for the look. You are right though I won't be using it with a hopper or any of the other options a T9 has to offer.
The use I am looking for is the First Strike Rounds. I will be caring it as a back-up weapon to use for long distance shot or a difficult shot.
