You were wise to figure this out on the range.

Many individuals fare better with iron sights for shooting in circumstances that mimic (as close as possible) realistic SD scenarios. For them, the iron sights provide a quick, natural point of aim; whereas with a reflex sight, the gun needs to be somewhat aligned with the target before the eye can focus on the red dot and take a more precise aim.

Of course, there are other individuals who fare better with a reflex sight. If someone struggles with visually "seeing" and aligning three points at the same time, a reflex sight can be a big plus.

It depends on the person (and his/her vision) and sometimes the environment.
