    Called Shotgun Sports to order Magic Dots for my new shooting glasses.They informed me that Browning does not make them anymore.I hate to put scotch tape on expensive shooting glasses.Do any of you know where to get some or a similiar product?Thanks.

    Darr, WalMart stationery has 3/4 inch colored dots. Think I paid about $4.00 for 500 in assorted colors. Hope this helps. Ron

    Decot is making their own.

    Why?

    If you are shooting from the non-dominant-eye side, switch sides.

    OK...I'll be less impulsive. That impulsivity hurts my shooting too. Thanks.

    I looks like these are not made by anyone anymore--unfortunate as my shooting bag mysteriously disappeared about a month ago and I lost my all of mine--and everything else for that matter.

    The Decot ones are magnetic according to their site--doesn't sound like a graceful solution to me.

    I had the frosted "clear" types that were oval in shape and clung to the lens without adhesive. The discontinued Browning ones came in colors I believe.

    I can't find any for sale, does anyone know of a source beyond what's posted already? Does Staples sell pricing dots that cling to glass that are frosted clear?

    Fold one edge of the tape back so that you can easily remove it. I have used this method for years with great success..

    You folks that are looking for them might try some of the suppliers that once carried them. Offhand gamaliel's, Bob Allen, Shydas etc. It will probably take a phone call to verify for sure if they are not listed on their website. Also some of the small dealers that set up at larger state shoots may still have them instock but thats waiting till summer...

    Chapstick, just a little bit of Chapstick, make is whatever size you want, then wash it off with hot water if you don't want it on there.

    Go to the label section of Office Max or office depot...they sell semi-transparent 3/4 inch labels that work perfectly and come right off.

    Costs about $8 for 1000 of them though.
