    i just sold one of my ARs in order to buy a shitload of stuff for my other AR. I already bought about $200 in random shit for it, now i'm on the optics. i don't know which way I should go with it. i'll either buy an Eotech, or buy a Barska SWAT scope. i'd like the longer range capabilities of the scope, but the Eotech would be nice too. I already have a BUIS for short range, so i'm kinda leaning towards the scope with LaRue QD mounts. what do ya'll think?

    apparently the saying "you get what you pay for" need not apply for Barska scopes:ugh:

    used? I wish I had a flat top, 180 is doable. but actually I'd probably buy a CT grip for my 92 instead.

    I know,I was just being an ass.
    Actualy I have one of the knock off surefire green lasers.Only thing that sucks about it is,the mount,total junk.It held it`s zero during slow fire,but once i started realy going,it blew the laser right out of the mount.Mount was still connected on the rail,but the laser was laying on the ground.But I`m ordering a larue for it this coming week or the next

    iron sights FTW

    It's fun going to the range and then out-shooting people with ridiculous optics with only irons.
