sight

Predator only had 3 beams… Laserlyte has 9:

Pretty cool how just because of the way the beam is split, the dot pattern tightens and opens up depending on distance to target just like the spread of a shotgun.

Available over at Laserlyte.  The Green laser version is $285 (Actually cheaper on Amazon – $250) and the Red laser version will be available in 2 months for $150 and will fit pistols and long guns.

Oh yeeaaaaaahhh.

Thoughts?  How many of you guys are going to pick one of these up? Pretty decent idea for home defense I would imagine, except all that light could might ruin your night vision.

  • The range depends on a persons arm length.
  • The red dot sight is for close target aquisiton for stabbing
  • The scope with magnification is for acquiring distant targets you plan on throwing the knife at

Maybe it’s just me.. but I feel that the way the optics are mounted would totally mess up blade harmonics.

This setup is just crying for a free floated vertical foregrip.

This guy is gonna CLEAN UP in duel challenges.

Green lasers kick ass.  I wish I liked having a laser on my pistol enough to buy another one (I sold my red guiderod Lasermax a while back and don’t miss it at all).

Aiming a weapon is harder than it looks. Shooters need clear views of a distant object (the target) and a near one (the iron sight at the end of the rifle barrel) at the same time. But the eye can’t quite pull this off, as a simple experiment shows: Point at a faraway house or storefront, then try to bring both your finger and the building into focus. One or the other will be blurry.

Enter the MicroSight…. It allows the shooter to focus on both the target and the front sight.

If you ask me, David Crandall (the Engineer who developed this technology) should have quit his job, got his own funding, and started his own company. He basically just threw billions of dollars in the garbage by letting his employer (the Idaho National Laboratory) have the technology.

I wish I had one of those badboys to properly commemorate the anniversary.

A great article on Lasers on the BBC news website – HERE

My sister graduated from [OPSEC] with a Masters degree in [OPSEC] a few days ago, so I missed this… but it has since shown up everywhere:

Someone explain the point of it to me.

  • Is it for people that have dropped the money on an SLR, only to use auto focus to take quick inaccurate shots?
  • What distance do you zero the sight for?

People that think they have a use for something like this should probably also put an arrow on their camera that says “point this way” on it, so they don’t accidentally pick it up backwards and take a self portrait instead that hummingbird on the flower they were trying to get.

I am not going to give this product the dignity of a link to its purchase page, but if you have any self respect you will not google it anyway, and decide to purchase it for $45.

I’m waiting for a picture down the road where someone mounts a high powered scope on that adapter instead for some LOLz.
