EOTech holographic sights are designed to be used with both eyes open so you can retain situational awareness and acquire a target faster than other optics which makes them great for hunting, close range competition shooting or combat. The EOTech is easily mounted to a Weaver/Picatinny rail.
The EOTech 512 is EOTech's most popular holographic weapon sight. Powered by two AA batteries you won't have to worry about finding the less common CR123 batteries. Battery life is excellent with lithium batteries and good with alkaline. Rechargeable batteries work too but need to be replaced much more often depending on the quality of the battery. If you do not need night vision compatibility the 512 is an excellent choice for most shooters.
