    The price caught my eye. Anyone have opinions on these? Can this be used w/ both eyes open? Battery life?

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    They'll work, but I wouldn't depend on one of these in an emergency. If you're looking for a range plinker, sure. But even then, I think there are better options out there.

    To answer your questions - yes, you can use them with both eyes open, and they use a CR2032 battery, so maybe 100-200hrs?

    Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?

    Do a search for "review truglo" or "review red dot". I did a review on a cheapie A1optic red dot sight, it would be okay for a paintball gun.

    I have the 25 mm installed in my WASR and I am guessing I have shot some 200 rounds without problems.
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    IMO the tasco propoint is a better red dot sight for the money looks just like an aimpoint but without the cost of one and I have put over a 1000 rounds down range with it with no problems at all. Go to OpticsPlanet.com - Binoculars, Sunglasses, Night Vision Goggles, Riflescopes, Flashlights, Telescopes, Rangefinders, Microscopes - Hunting, Outdoor, Science, & Military Gear to check it out

    FWIW, I have a refurbished Tasco mounted in my shotgun and it has given me zero problems also.

    Thanks for all the replys. I went w/ a Barska Illuminated Red Dot at Gander for $69. I was in the area w/ my wife. So I just popped in to look around and made an impulse purchase.
