Do you want to have to turn on the sight (red dot) before pulling the trigger?


'course you could just carry a pocket full of cr2032 batteries and leave the sight on all the time...


I'm a proponent of bear spray, but it seems pretty ineffective when the wind is blowing. Maybe carry both kinds of bear repellant: unleaded (spray) and leaded (12 guage slug)
