Holosun Red Dot Sights – Budget Aimpoint?

When I first started getting into red dot sights, there were three major manufacturers everyone wanted: Aimpoint, EOTech and Trijicon. I personally preferred Aimpoint and Trijicon, because their battery life far exceeded that of EOTech. The only problem was I preferred EOTech’s reticle over Aimpoint and Trijicon. I ultimately purchased an Aimpoint PRO and still love it, but I always wished there was an optic with Aimpoint battery life and an EOTech reticle. Holosun has done just that with many of their red dot sights.

I chose two passive units that work to draw in moisture, and can be recharged when plugged into an electrical outlet. I also included an active dehumidifier, which only ran when the car was running, but aggressively worked to lower the level of humidity in the trunk. This article will cover the tests I performed to see how well the unit did at keeping the humidity level below 50%, which is when rust begins to form.

Dehumidifier System for A Trunk Gun – Part 1

I’ve always liked the idea of having a long gun in the trunk or somewhere in my vehicle. The issue I’ve run into is that humidity levels increase as the temperature gets colder. At one time I had some rust on the barrel of a Kel-Tec PF9 I used to keep in the car, after only having the gun in the car for a few days. After toying with the idea for a couple years, I finally got around to making it a reality, since I decided I wanted to keep my Mossberg Maverick 88 in the trunk.

iTarget Pro Home Gun Training System

Dry firing used to be the closest you could get to practicing at home with a gun, unless you’re one of the lucky few who had a gun range on their property. Fortunately, advances in technology have allowed us to better simulate the experience of shooting, which is incredibly helpful for those days you just can’t get to the range, or weather doesn’t permit it.
