Well I doubt they will really be selling a lot of these, so in about a year start looking in those clearance sections.

I was at the range for like 6 hours Fri no issues with batteries /shrug but whatever not all of us have money for Trijicons...If you're so worried about batteries use your irons.

more the reason I switched to an Aimpoint T-1 micro... battery life.

Reminds me of the stupid reticules you could select in Call of Duty. As for the battery issue, I just received an XPS3 in trade, haven't ever used the XPS series but god did my 551 and 511 have troubles with batteries. My 552 and 553 lasted just fine, not as long as an aimpoint of course, but I like the reticle and field of view of the EOTech much better.

Do you have any idea how many "Zombie" type gun packages are currently being sold? Zombie ammo, zombie targets, Zombie flash hiders, Ruger LCP Zombie Slayer, and over the last couple of years I've seen a number of Zombie ARs and shotgun packages.

No, I'm not into the who Zombie thing but millions of others are. The XPS2-Z should be out around May and it will most likely be a big seller.

The zombie thing is getting quite out of control, but I'm not going to lie, that reticle is pretty sweet haha.

Damn the the bio hazard reticle looks nice.

Well I wont be getting one but, I do think its a good thing that they are opening the market to reticle options. for me I like the delta point triangle but I dont like the size of it I would like a smaller one, maybe down the road?

If I had the money right now you bet I'd get one. That's the coolest reticle I've ever seen--if they could do that without the junk on the outside body it'd be perfect. For what we pay for guns and gear, it had better be interesting and fun to be worth it for me. I find myself thinking heavily these days about guest entertainment value for what I buy, for new shooters, future kids, my wife (maximize fun for her = minimize budget disputes), and biz clients, and this fits the bill nicely for those criteria.

That does look nice. It was only a matter of time before they started doing that. Playing Black Ops getting all the diff recticles was cool.

"I am getting tired of people/ companies trivializing guns, ammo, and acessories.

These are made for killing people (and in some cases, critters).

That is, the bad guys. Humans (or maybe sub humans, but yeah, still humans)

This zombie **** demeans all of those who do this for real."

:oji: Pat does not get it sadly. And he of all people should know damn well that an incredibly large portion of folks that train with him have no intention nor ever will be taking a firearm into harms way? So outside of :tfh: and :ninja: fantasies why do they do it? Because they think it is fun! So why do people go along with the zombie thing? Same reason!

It's all about marketing. Adapt or die.

Mossberg gets it.

"It would seem like Mossberg's been infected. They've developed new versions of existing firearms, some older, some newer, and prepared them for the zombie apocalypse."

This has made me lose all desire I ever had to buy an eotech as well as all respect for the company. Product aimed 100% toward the mall ninja crowd.

So what?

Mall Ninjas spend money. EOTech is a business.

When McDonalds introduced salads, fat people didn't stop going there for cheeseburgers.

Actually looks pretty cool, minus the artwork on the outside, that retcile seems bada**!
If I had money to blow on a zombie riflem this would be on it!
Now lets wait and see what Aimpoint and Trijicon come out with it...

So tired of this zombie junk. It's one thing to talk about the "Zombie Apocalypse" as a metaphor for when things go bad... but that point seems lost on most people.

And anyone who buys that Zombie ammo might as well start stocking up on silver bullets too for when the werewolves come... it'll probably be cheaper than the Zombie ammo right now anyway.
