If it's mostly for the range, that might be true, but I believe in an SD situation with more scenery/distractions, the 6 moa is better.

The eye doesn't pick it up any faster doesn't make sense to me. Does your eye spot something faster that is twice the size of something else everything else being equal?

Most red dots allow you to increase the lighting. Most work just fine in bright day.
I think 3 MOA is best because it is more accurate, IMO.

My eyes don't do iron sights anymore. My aging eyes can't focus on the front sight too well. Sooo I went the red dot route. I was in the same boat too big vs. little dot, accuracy vs. speed. One thing I did notice was it isn't easy to pick up that dot. The first few times I dry fired had trouble finding the dot. It does take practice. I finally decided on the Holosun 507c which has a 2 MOA dot in the middle of a large 32 MOA circle. Think Eotech sight that's what it looks like so sorta the best of both worlds. I use it to shoot USPSA matches and since the ranges can be anywhere from point blank to 20 yards, I can use the big circle to find the dot easier in short ranges and so long as the circle covers the center of mass you're assured of a hit. I can then use the center dot for further shots. Again it does take practice. I've only used it in 2 matches so far as what with the pandemic and all. I'm not fast at all but I I do my part the shots go where I want it to.

Got 2 pistols with RDS, G-19 Holosun 507C = 2.5 MOA dot, & Shadow-2 with Trijicon SRO 5-MOA.
I shoot well with both guns, to shoot well you MOST practice. The beauty of RDS system you can practice dry and you will know if you do well or not.
If you want to shoot tight bullseye target 20 yards & up I think you should go with the smaller dot since it covers less of the target @ distance.
Closer distance & SD bigger dot usually = faster acquisition of the dot & the skill.
Go on Youtube a lot of good info from guys like Modern Samurai Project = the best RDS instructor. SageDynamics = Aaron Cowan also top notch, and many more.
