1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    That is a good deal and I thank you for the offer but the 1/4 MOA would be
    to big for what I am gong to use it for. I think that big of a dot would cover an egg at 200 yds. How much did they charge you for the change.

    1/4 MOA equals 1/2" at 200 yards. You must be shooting a benchrest rifle to be into egg shooting. I hunted whistlepigs for years, until my eyes went north on me, with a BalVar 24 fitted with a T.K. Lee 1/2 minute dot (the kind that were suspended on a strand of blackwidow spider web) and it never covered a pig out to 400 yeards or so, always showed lots of pig around the dot. The deal offered you sounds pretty good but if you are interested in more power, hope you have deep pockets The cost of the higher power scopes seem to be geometrical progression with the power of the scope.

    Just my .02 worth.

    I sent the scope back for the larger dot because at 220 yrs, shooting eggs, I could'nt see the dot. They did'nt charge me anything, nice people.

    Skeetfield : Learning new things everyday, I have not shot at one egg yet so all the info is helpful. last night I put a bid on an old T25 so now I have to wait and see what happens with that. I would like to take your offer if someone bids over me which I think they will. I will PM you. Thanks

    CM

    shot410ga : TomB : Thanks but I think I will stay with a straight power.


    Wahoo : I have to ask what is a wistlepig?

    Claymuncher, Rosebuster answered you.Goundhogs will sometimes emit a very sharp, short whistle, apparently warning other hogs in the immediate area. They seem to only whistle while standing up, at least that has been my experience. It's like a bucksnort, once you hear it, you will never mistake it for any other sound. They don't whistle often, in fact it took years before I heard one.

    I have shot a few groundhogs here in Michigan and I didn't no they could whistle, maybe I never got close enough. Farmers called it a favor and I called it fun. last year I had one chase me out of my back yard all the way to the door of my house. Maybe he did whistle just before I shot him, I figured distemper or rabbis but it was a surprise to be chased by a crazed ground hog.....

    where do you shoot eggs? do you do it for money? That's a big target, what range are you shooting them?

    I have one of the older Japanese Tasco 36 power by 44mm objective target scopes that I would sell to you. This is the version with the 1/8 minute clicks, target knobs and fine-as-froghair plain crosshairs. It also has the long 8" lense shade on it. The scope tube is kinda scratched up from mounting & remounting over the years, but the glass is clear and fog-free.

    pm me if interested and I can send pics as well.

    Deaner : No PM recieved

    I have not started on the egg shooting, just getting ready for next year. I guess the guys around here get fairly serious about it, not much money to shoot or win. Three sessions of 5 shots in 10 minutes at 200 yds. Sounds like fun so I thought I would try it in the spring. I am going against the grain using an AR, but it has a very good heavy barrel and trigger set up, I thought it would feel good to beat the bench guys with an AR if possible.

    Kiv : Thanks but I understand 36X is a bit high for eggs?
