The Holosun AEMS – A New Red-Dot Sight

Holosun has been a role lately. They’ve been providing extremely high-quality red dot sights at relatively low prices. They’ve never really done anything super original or innovative. They kind of just do what works and sell it at a lower price. However, their latest optic, the Holosun AEMS, shows that they can be quite creative. […]

UH-1 Holographic Sight by Vortex Optics

I have featured the Vortex Optics UH-1 on a few articles and this is my final review on it. It’s badass and I can’t imagine switching to something else… end of review. Just kidding. The UH-1 has been adopted by anyone and everyone that can get their hands on it as the go-to CQC/CQB optic. […]
