Help The Devil Decide on Zombie Gear
Help me out, bullies. I've got about $700 bucks to spend on man toys at the moment. I'm trying to decide between this:
If I buy the shotgun I'm going to get a Knoxx recoil reduction stock and a side saddle to go on it which will put me around $700.
If I buy the Aimpoint, I'm going to get a Larue mount with it that will put me around $700.
So, here are my tactical concerns.....I do have a 12 gauge shotgun, but it's really a bird gun. I don't have a tactical shotgun. So, I need one. Duh. This seems like a no-brainer and my first inclination was to buy the shotgun. But....
I have a Bushmaster AR-15 with a flat top receiver and iron sights. I can shoot it well, so I would generally consider a red dot optic to be of secondary importance. But, I was thinking about when the zombies come. All the bad boys will be packing heat. But the Aimpoint would give me a distinct low light advantage in the post-apocalyptic, electricityless world. It sucks balls to be in the dark, want to engage a target and can't because you can't see your front sight post. Been there, done that. Didn't like it at all.
Help me choose. Don't tell me about all the other unrelated cool stuff you'd buy instead. I also don't want to hear your Aimpoint / Eotech arguments and your Remington / Mossberg arguments. I have other guns and for various reasons, I'm going to choose one of these items at the moment. So, what do you fuckers think?
