I only have 2...
A 30-6 that's never been fired (it's a collector edition I forget if it's a remington or winchester but it has very ornate engravings on it and all that)
I don't love guns, but I feel the need to have a couple in case SHTF

Someone mentioned seeing a Beretta in my group photo, but I don't own any. I don't know what you're looking at.

Hard to believe, but living in Alabama, I've only seen 3 snakes my entire life.

|paulag1955||I just picked up a S&W 317 AirLite. The idea is to load it with birdshot and use it to kill rattlesnakes that venture too close around the house. It's crazy light, less than 11 ounces unloaded.|

|Thewretched||I appreciate ya. That helps my choice out a lot. Also why I like s&w's.. That life time warranty is nice|

|brembo||You won't get burned on a Vortex. Their warranty is the real deal if you get a wonky unit.|

|Thewretched||I was thinking about EOTech and Aimpoint, like you both said, but I can't see myself dropping 500+ on just one optic, where for about 400.00 I can get a vortex reddot and a magnifier.|

The XPS2.0 uses a CR123A battery, mounted transversely so it frees up a whole slew of space on the top rail of ARs, will co-witness with irons too.
All that being said, the Vortex lineup is solid. Well made and backed by their no-hassle forever warranty. I keep coming back to the 1-4x Viper PST scope, I want to lay hands on one in a bad way to see how that illuminated reticle works in bright daylight. The Vortex brand is made to a price-point, a very well thought out and managed point tho. It's not as burly and bomb-proof as the Aimpoints, but the prices reflect that. I have an Aimpoint that is well over 25 years old on a .44 Mag that bucks like a mule. Never had issue one from it and it's had thousands if not 10s of thousands of rounds down the barrel. Battery life is sorta annoying but feed it fresh batts and it's as reliable as the sun.

|WirelessG||I have a Vortex strike fire and it works fine. I haven't shot with it much (couple hundred rounds), but so far so good. Primary Arms has some homegrown red dots that are cheaper. They may not last as long, but they provide a warranty on them. I'd like to get an EOTech or an Aimpoint or a Mepro, but I can't justify the cost. Burris makes a nice reflex sight.|
