A Special Thanks To A Great Forum Member - Wingnut!

Post by Mistered » Fri Jul 12, 2019 8:27 pm

Met up with Wingnut today who earlier offered to let me 'test fire' a couple Red Dots and low power scopes.
Well long story short but a 'Dot' is off the table. I do not get a clear, sharp image of the dot with my sight-restored right eye and it was very challenging to shoot with it and I experienced very poor accuracy.

The 1X scopes were great however and and I shot both his .308 Long Ranger and .45 Colt Big Boy steel better than I expected so my PCC will soon be 'wearing' a 1 - 4X 30MM scope.

Once again thank you Wingnut for your generosity and assistance in meeting up with me today!

Cool is right. Great job, wingnut. Nothing beats hands on experience. Glad you're on track with the right setup, now, Mistered.

Good to read you two got together. I've been wondering when it would happen considering how close in proximity you guys are.
