EOTech Zombie Stopper

I present to you a great way to lose friends and alienate yourself at the range:

Save Your Brain with the New EOTech Zombie Stopper!  Use the awesome new biohazard reticle to sight them in and kill them dead (again).

All for a measly $559.  What makes this even more hilarious is that the regular non-DERPified XPS2 is only $519

Hopefully that inner circle of the biohazard symbol is still 65MOA like the rest of their sights.  That would make it slightly less useless.

Maybe if the Nazi product craze catches on once Iron Sky hits movie theaters, you’ll be able to buy a SS branded XPS2 with a swastika reticle to accurately send some Hornady Nazi ammo down range.   Hey.. they jumped on the Zombie bandwagon, who knows what they might pull next.

So who’s picking one of these up?

I knew I had to get one the first time I heard of it. I didn’t even need to see it. The new leupold zombie series is a little much though.

I understood the early “zombie” references on the forums and though I didn’t use the reference myself, I got it. I even understand “zombie shoots,” though I wouldn’t participate in one myself, I get it. HOWEVER, I don’t understand the zombie labeled products. It seems too cheap and low.

It’s like when you see a catchy phrase on a glittery bumper sticker on a beater car. The phrase has reached it’s peak and is already overused by the time it’s in bumper sticker form.

I kind of agree with doug. Plus, all that extra frilly stuff around the center reticle would be a little bit distracting wouldn’t it? And really? A biohazard symbol?

Cliche much?

Next thing you know there will be some stupid Twilight themed reticles.

Zombies and twilight characters have one thing in common: they are best served as images on the paper target, not the theme of the gear with which to shoot at said targets.

I have no interest in this particular product, but I wish them well with it and hope they sell a ton of them.

Why do so many respectable companies feel the need to be a part of this pathetic fad? Leupold was particularly disturbing. I mean the gun Industry doesn’t seem to be hurting for business. It seems to be a really shameless cash-grab, only I don’t know one single person that owns any of this stupid zombie-branded crap.

They’re having – God forbid – a little fun.

The way you guys make it sound, you’d think companies dropped their regular products entirely when, in fact, it’s a few high-profile companies just goofing around. It doesn’t sully “our image” or prove anything other than people have a sense of humor.

I think it’s corny and won’t toss any of my money at it, but I’m not going to pucker my sphincter over it. I may pick up a zombie target at the range this weekend, just to have a little fun.

I got to handle this at SHOT.

My first thought – drop this onto a Remington 870 – the biohazard pattern isn’t as obnoxious as it looks and is still fairly quick. In fact, if memory serves, they had it mounted on a shotgun.

The zombie-themed gear got a bit old but EoTech is clearly having some fun. I guarantee that if I stripped the cheesy graphics off the shroud and just ran it as-is, there would be a bit of eye-rolling at the range but my friends would want to shoot it.

And let me quote from our beloved Uncle Hulka -
LIGHTEN UP, FRANCIS.

Who puts a holographic sight on a shotgun? You can fire it from the hip and still be accurate.

Someone whose perception of what shotguns can do isn’t based off of cheesy action movies and bad television shows. If you can hit a flying pheasant at 30 yards from your hip, I’ll buy you a 6 pack of beer. If you can hit a dove, I’ll make it a case.

I don’t hunt much anymore, but for the rare occasions that I go deer hunting with friends, I have a bracket that fits on the receiver of my shotgun that has a rail on top to mount optics – I have a red dot sight mounted to it. I don’t hunt enough to justify buying a slug barrel with rifle sights, and it a hell of a lot more convenient to have a red dot on there than trying to aim a weapon that has only a front sight.

$559 is a bit steep for a gag item/toy. Better had they hooked up with whoever rips off their designs for Airsoft crap and crank out some of licensed ones for under $100, complete with toggle to zombie green reticle and disclaimer.

I dont care for the Zombie stuff(besides most everyone knows its just a pc codeword), but I can see utility in having another known set of circles of known diameter in a reticle.

Heck, after Iron Sky, we’ll be shooting NAZI zombies.

At least one vendor at the gun show I attended this weekend had zombie targets, at least two of which featured Nazified zombies. Or zombified Nazis. Whatever.

Just the thing for those “Dead Snow” – themed IPSC shoots. I’m thinking the new zombie EO-Tech sight is intended for the same market…

Where is the “HOOD LIFE 3″ reticle that looks like a dollar sign? $.

…reticle that looks like a dollar sign?

How about a Waffle House logo with crosshairs in the middle?

Hey, say what you will, I can’t keep the hornady Z-max ammo on the shelves. It sells like crazy.
Funny thing though is that it is all single or 1 box of each caliber.
Noone is stocking up on it. I swear if I just had a bunch of the empty boxes I could sell them.
