Thing is Im terrified of useing it in paintball. There was a little artical on the EOtech website praizing it for its ability to continue to perform after an officer had his broken by a direct paintball hit " Yes broken " during a training exersize.
First of all, I guarantee you that he was not using a paintball marker during that training exercise. I'm almost 100% sure that what those police officers were using was Simunition. It's pretty much a paintfilled plastic bullet fired from a low-power 9mm cartridge from real firearms that have been converted to fire the simuntion. Trust me, those things fly fast(360-490 fps), and hurt when they hit you, but, man! are they fun to fire. I've used and seen real EoTech scopes, and trust me, unless someone is running really, really, hot, (like 300fps+), there is no way that regular paintballs are going to break your EoTech, I mean, I've seen those things dropped out of helicopters and fall on rocks and not break.
If you have the money, and YOU feel it's worth it, go for it.
P.S. Moderators, I'm sorry for the necro, but I just wanted to clear this up. Nevermind it's a sticky, and I guess you can't really necro those. lol
