Eotech or Aimpoint? No opinion, I never used either of them.

I would still take the SAW over any other weapon offered to me. Even a 3k dollar nighthawk.
But there's just something special when you hold a Nighthawk.. Like, this is what God would have made if it were a pistol...

And regarding that saw, yeah um... I get into too much trouble with that gun so I'll just be happy with my m4.

If forced to pick between those items I would go for the M9 and the Eotech.
Real men can drive nails with a set of optics or iron sights just the same.. Im well trained with both...and i am a real man sir

Okay so just to be clear with everyone. I USE IRONS ALL THE TIME. Batteries are unreliable and unless you have storage for them, in the field they will bite you in the ass. With that said, you can use your opens through an eotech if it runs out of battery. My mp5 has a space underneath its eotech so you can do the same thing. I just think it's a nice touch especially with full auto scenarios. Like with the saw for example, using an eotech with one is awesome (but I do like me some acogs ).

I just think Aimpoints are waaaay over priced for just a tiny red dot.

Message to brother from a RETIRED Ranger- Real men use a K-Bar or Gerber- and if a handgun is really needed, it is a 1911A1 or a suppressed Ruger 22!

All 9mm's suck, so neither.

Both become a rock when the batteries are gone, so again, neither.

Nuff said.
