For situations where an LEO must take lightning-fast shot at a threat, it is hard to beat a reflex sight. Allowing both-eyes-open shooting, these sights allow the officer to not only focus on the threat but also remain aware of potential threats in the periphery.
The following is a roundup of some of the options available to officers today. Designed for use on a range of handguns, rifles and shotguns, these sighting systems will keep you on the cutting edge.
