My sister in law stopped in this morning and noticed my Glock 34 MOS in the window of the sun room. She's not what you'd call a gun person and was curious about why it was in the window. She knew it was some kind of pistol, but that's all.

Me: "Charging the battery."
Sis: (raised eyebrows) "I didn't know guns had batteries!"
Me: "This one does for the sight. Has a solar panel to charge it up."
Sis: (more raised eyebrows) "Wow! Can I see it?"
Me: "Sure". And launched into a rather lengthy discussion about the gun and Holosun SCS.

Nice. I didn't know there were solar chargers on any of their sight systems. I had to look it up just now.

Should have said, "just letting it warm up in the sun......"

I just realized I need a new kidex type holster and left handed at that.... wife switched our TV watching chairs and there is a small open in the back bookcase between us and I have one of my Sig P239s in a holster clipped to the back side of it... but now it is on her side.

They ain't cheap and I had to think about it for while, but I'm glad I bought it. Much better than the CT I had on the gun prior. Love the reticles you can change with a push of the button. Bright, sharp, always on unless you manually switch it off. I think they are making them with other footprints now to fit other makes & models that have a optics cut so you don't need an adapter plate.

Just buy another gun for the empty space.
