Re: Vortex Crossfire II 6-18x

After trying to decide on a scope from this forum, this vortex seemed the better choice than the Muller I was thinking of. However, Went to my dealer (here in canada). He told me he could not get it. I emailed vortex to ask if they could get it in. They proceeded to tell me it has been discontinued....

mueller scopes

There has not been any new news on these scopes in a couple years looking through the site. There were a couple good posts, but most were not happy with the reliability by the sounds of things. Has anything changed for the better? Anyone running these consistently with good results? Anyone using the...

Re: learning day

Jerry G. It would be great if I could do an indoor shoot, but we can not do steel indoors and cutting all that out of wood would be laborious. But possible I suppose. Winter or summer here does not seem to matter. I hold an interclub shoot during the winter for sporting rifle and get the same 20 guy...

learning day

Well, this is just a follow up to let you know how things progressed for me. I held an informational shoot last weekend to try and get people out to see what silhouette was all about. 6 out of the 12 people who expressed interest showed up. This from the 5000 people the notice hopefully reached if e...

I have learned.....

.....From reading here that using paper on the back of a swinging target when you do not have a berm behind is great. Although I have only played around with it over the last couple years, using that backing paper this year definitely helps .....again that it is hard to get people excited here. I ha...

Re: Cheap Portable Target Stand: Spreading the Disease!

Frig. Is it really that simple? I was trying to come up with a stand and ask questions to see what others have done. That seems too simple. But I will give it a try. Be great for practice. As we have a multipurpose range, so only one backstop, and I could never leave stands out as they would just ge...

Re: firing line prep

Ken, I was referring to sporting rifle, which is what I presume you may call light rifle. Prone or 3P. 30 seconds between banks. Huh. I woulda guessed longer, but I guess if you are all sighted in, then there is no point in delaying. Speaking of sighting in. Does everyone sight in at each range or d...

firing line prep

Ok, Does someone have a video, or perhaps can make one, or give more detailed information about preparation time. I have read the rules regarding time limits, but can not seem to see, maybe I am just overlooking them, about prep time before shooting. I think I know in air gun that shooters can put t...

Re: mil dot scopes with rimfire

thanks for the help. I like sqhunter of the hold points. I guess my main reason for thinking mil dot was partly due to my idea of shooting at one distance for one shot, another for the second and so on. I was only thinking this way as part of a fun shoot as a lot of people around me do not seem to l...

mil dot scopes with rimfire

Ok. So, I have been playing on and off the last couple years with a set of swingers that I bought. I am hoping to play a bit more serious this summer and perhaps get some action going on at my club. I had the brainstorm a bit ago of wondering if my mildot scope could work at the distances without ha...

first real practice try

Well, I received my swingers. Set up the correct distances. those distances can't be right. Jeeeeeeepers. My ISSF rifle targets are not that small. 2/10 chicks 0/10 pigs (they are supposed to be the easiest? Phooey I say) 3/10 turks and 5/10 rams (100yds not meters for the rams). That will give me a...

Re: Another Newbie

out to the range today and tried setting up the range for one or two sets. One set is easy enough, even if I did a bank of 10 for each animal. 2 sets is another story. It can be done if you put 2 banks one behind the other and I have 5' shooting bays. I will have to make special arrangements for the...

Re: Another Newbie

Now I am getting somewhere. You all have given good information for me to digest. A couple points of note. As far as I can tell with the people I have been talking with in other parts, they offically follow the NRA rules. As is has been noted in a couple posts, I will have to adapt somewhat to make ...

Re: Another Newbie

No bantering Mary and Dustin. I don't ever expect to run a sanctioned match here. However, I always try to run matches as close to the rules as possible. A little bend here, a little bend there just so I can make sure that people come out and shoot. The spacing really does not bother me too much, it...
