After you gain experience in Law Enforcement you realize that hits matter more than MOA groups. I’ve been through so much training and had so much range experience that having an accurate rifle does not mean you are going to win a fight. There are plenty of bad guys that can’t shoot for shit and they still can kill special forces guys if they spray enough gun fire at them. Ricochet bullets can kill and even body amour mentions on the trama plates that they can cause ricochets so you know bullets don’t always fly straight. The trend in recent years has been towards red dots and even though Trijicon, Aimpoint and Eotechs have been around for a long time, there are a lot of variations between all of them. Many of our customers ask for advice but it’s really about what you want to see and how you use them.
I personally have a strong preference toward Eotech sights and I’m a big fan of the Eotech EXPS2-0 sight. I have been using Eotech sights for almost 8yrs and only had one battery issue, but wear and tear has to be expected and most of the big name companies have good warranties so you can send them in for repairs. My eyes still pickup the Eotech gun sight better than a red dot because red dots always seem to chase the targets to me. The Eotech sights do have variations in reticles and for longer range engagements you may want the circle with the 2 dot system. I am a big fan of the Eotech magnifiers.
