FR Gun Club: Sighting In A New Rifle
via email | unknown

Posted on 12/08/2008 9:26:18 PM PST by Neil E. Wright

You can't be to careful when sighting in your expensive new deer rifle .........

1. Shiny new, high-powered deer rifle..............$ 1,200.00

2. Quality, high-powered scope........................$ 550.00

3. Bore sighting device.....................................$ 140.00

4. Hospital Visit......................$ 4,893.00

5. Forgetting to remove the bore sighting device prior to actually shooting? Disastrous

The series of pics, excluding the dude on the stretcher, do belong together. Saw it posted by the shooter previously on some other forum.

Greetings. Thanks for your input. Obviously someone has taken your work to a whole new level, since I just got the email forwarded to me yesterday.

The basic message doesn't change, and that is to CHECK YOUR WEAPON BEFORE YOU SHOOT IT .... and those pics should help hammer home that message.

And welcome to FreeRepublic. if you have any more pics you'd like to share, start a thread for the FR Gun Club; a whole lot of people here would like to see what you offer ... :)

Again, welcome and thanks for the clarification on the pics.

Regards, Neil E. Wright

As soon as I saw the pictures I thought of Eaker.

Iron sights, baby. If you need a scope, you're too far away. Plus, if you hit the deer high on the neck, he'll be able to reach acorns that weren't available to him before (after the neck wound heals, that is).

Well that’s a great way to make a rifle useless. Can I at least have the main body? Just something to look at and oogle.

That looks like something I can make in the video game Chromehounds.

Tracked, wheeled, legs, hover base; rocket, automatic rifle, sniper rifle/cannon, high-angled stuff... haven’t played it in a while though. Mostly because I was kinda bad at it.

Are you happy with it?

I’m happy with it...

The only downfall is it chews through batteries when it’s cold. Otherwise, the batteries are rated at 20 minutes of continuous use.

We use one at work in the ballistic lab, which is cold in the winter. It’s the 5.56/.223 laser with .30 and .50 BMG arbors...
