Blingapalooza: The Target

Good morning...err afternoon, everyone.

I want to take a few minutes to thank those of you who have donated thus far to my question to outfit my new rifle.

One of our number is a a guy named Tim who just happens to be an Eo-Tech dealer and he has suggested that he can help out with one of their super-cool holographic weapons sights (HWS).

I'm partial to the 517.A65 myself. But that depends on you guys and girls think.

Is it fair for me to ask you guys to chip in a few dollars one a year or so, simply because you read my blog? I think so. It's far to ask, I mean. I provide the bloggy goodness, the occasional gotcha or exclusive, or simply a place to hang out and argue with one another (you know who you are).

I like to think there is some entertainment value in that. Now, whether the value is enough for good optics or rail covers is entirely up to you.

Thanks for your support!

And now back to your regularly scheduled blog...

I have an Eo-Tech on my Colt AR-15 and love it. It is not like the red dot sights and will only appear if you have the target in your aiming point. It also lets you know that if you pull the trigger it will hit what you are aiming at once you have sighted it in for a specific range.

I'm fond of the Aimpoint Micro's. Super small, great sight picture, work flawless with NVG's and 5 years on a single battery. See if you can demo both before you buy.

Yes, I've seen the Aimpoints. They remind me a bit of the Insight Technologies MRDS that I had out for a T&E period last year.

Of course, all of that depends on when I can pull together the funds to but something.
