Yes it will. I know of no battery operated device that will last that long.Won't the tritium in your scope reach it's half-life in 12.32 years?
First of all, SHTF won't happen, it's a contrived idea designed an implemented to make you consume...Aside from iron sights, what sort of optics (scopes) do you use.
I've been tempted to get an inexpensive "red dot" -type scope, but scopes like that use batteries. I don't want to find myself relying on whether my batteries are working or not when the SHTF.
You will also have received a serious dose of radiation directly to the lenses and retina of your eye if you shoot very much.Yes it will. I know of no battery operated device that will last that long.
In 12 years you would replace dozens of lithium batteries which will have outgassed enough sulphur dioxide to fry the electronics long before that.
I will be 72 years old then. If I'm still shooting and if Trijicon is still in business they will replace the H3 capsule free under their lifetime warranty.
If they aren't, I'll ask the space aliens to sign me up and issue me whatever the current phaser or ray gun is then popular amongst the militia.
Please quote your sources for this. Very likely absolutely false.You will also have received a serious dose of radiation directly to the lenses and retina of your eye if you shoot very much.
The lens will have an 800% higher chance of cataracts,
the retina will have 1,200% higher chances of early macular degeneration.
