anyone use em?
 
i have a vortex strikefire, but want a diff red dot sight. i love it, i want something with knobs for control instead of buttons. so ive been looking at the aimpoint 9000sc or the c3. i like both of them a lot. and i know that this makes no much of a difference but i like the idea of being able to switch between red and green, but id also like the idea of having the circle/dot reticle found on eotech & bushnell's trophy & sightrons s33 (?) for the simple fact that my eyes like it. this sight is strictly going to be used for turkey hunting. thats it. nothing else. im not sold on scopes because sometimes im sitting in a real weird ass position and a turkey caught my attention and if i re-adjust id probably scare him away so parallax and eye relief are my main main concern. just because a red dot sight can be green or has multi reticles isnt a deal maker
 
ive shot turkeys with iron sights, ive shot at turkeys and missed them with red dot sights. i like red dot sights because they are so useful. but i dont like how reflective the front of their lens are...i also dont like the darkening of the sight picture that the polarizing filter uses. so id prefer a sunshade.
 
i know im being over picky about this, but the last time i did this i pretty much closed my eyes and said "ok this one". 
 
like i said this is something i would use for hunting only.
 
so

Figure out what is more important to you: reticle type or battery life?  

If you want a circle-dot reticle, get an Eotech of some sort.

If you want to never have to worry about battery life, get an Aimpoint.

If you are worried about the reflection off the front, put on a kill-flash like the aimpoint has.  I personally lean towards the aimpoint (since that is what I have owned and used the most).  I like it better than the eotech because the eotech looks pixelated to me.  Just a personal preferance.  And I love the long battery life.  Don't have to worry about it working or not.  It just does.

Yep. There's Aimpoint and then theres the others. The Aimpoint T1/H1 is simply the best red dot to date, going IMHO.
