In a self-defense situation, keeping both your eyes open as you shoot can mean the difference between life and death. Rather than rely on the factory optics that require you to close one eye, you should definitely consider outfitting your weapon with a quality holographic sight. When you need something that is also night vision compatible, this EOTech XPS3-2 Holographic Weapon Sight will certainly get the job done right.
Made to be smaller and lighter than other holographic sights on the market, this model weighs in at only 9 ounces, which helps to avoid unnecessary weight on your rail. Able to mount on either a 1” Weaver style or mil-std 1913 rail, you have some options when you decide to use the XPS3. Not only does it provide 20 daylight settings, but it is also compatible with night vision devices, allowing for 10 additional settings during this type of use. This model uses a dual-reticle design, which allows you to maintain better accuracy on those distance shots.
If you are searching for a night-vision compatible optic that really will help keep you on target up close and on distance shots, this is definitely the way to go.
