Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Primary Arms Cyclops 1x

I inherited a Vortex Sparc II that I put on my home defense AR. It is quite user friendly, but it is still battery dependent. It isn't an Aimpoint, but the price was right (free).

I’ve always liked red dot optics. Coming into the Army about the same time the M68 was becoming standard issue, I grew to like the speed that a red dot afforded. Later on down the road I started running them on the AK, and grew to like Aimpoint’s T1 for a sleek, ultralight setup. That said, there’s always a ‘but’… that being the question of having a battery-only optic. While we’ve come a long, long way since the heyday of the M68, and battery life over a decade and a half later is far beyond the technology of that era. ‘But’…no battery, no reticle.

Throughout the years since I was first issued an ACOG, I always placed a high value on having a permanent reticle not dependent on a battery. Not only that, the 4x magnification helped with PID (positive identification) of insurgents during engagements and made precision work much easier. Over the years I’ve always thought a 1x prismatic optic like the ACOG would do very well on weapons intended for close contact.

"The truly dangerous man dresses inconspicuously and is soft- spoken. He walks away from most confrontations. The only time you learn that the truly dangerous man is mad at you is a split second before you die, for he never fights. He only kills. The truly dangerous man knows that fighting is what children do and killing is what men do." - Charley Reese 1986
