I like the new graphic. I was just getting ready to post when I saw yours, so I deleted. Were you at the 8th Annual TexasCowboy Memorial Shoot? Some real nice pics on the thread.

Filling in for mylife. PING-A-ROO!

Mandeville, LA – It’s an NRA program that is twenty years strong, updates from The Firearms Coalition, powder info from an industry leader, and more, this week on Tom Gresham's Gun Talk® Radio, the original nationally-syndicated radio talk show about guns and the shooting sports.

Since 1993, the NRA’s “Refuse to Be a Victim” program has brought the message of “proactive safety and crime prevention methods” to more than 100,000 men and women with the help of more than 3,800 instructors. As part of National Safety Month, Community Outreach Department National Manager Eric Lipp drops by on Sunday to discuss the program, and how to get involved. For more information, visit http://refuse.nra.org/.

Jeff Knox, Director of The Firearms Coalition, stops in to discuss the upcoming confirmation hearings of B. Todd Jones as Director of the BATFE that begin next week (http://bit.ly/17rTibE), and updates on the Manchin-Toomey bill. Visit www.firearmscoalition.org for the latest news.

Hodgdon Powder Co.’s CEO, Tom Shepherd, also visits on Sunday to talk about where the powder is, the benefits of reloading, and more. Hodgdon addresses the powder shortage on their website – read more about it here: http://bit.ly/187XG0l.

In its 19th year of national syndication, Tom Gresham's Gun Talk Radio airs live on Sundays from 2PM-5PM Eastern, and runs on more than 138 stations, plus on XM (Ch. 243) Satellite Radio. All Gun Talk shows can be downloaded as podcasts at http://www.guntalk.libsyn.com and Apple iTunes, or through one of the available Apps: Gun Talk App on Stitcher, the Gun Talk iPhone App, the Blackberry Podcast App, and the Gun Talk App for Android on Amazon. The Gun Talk Minute on XM also airs on XM 243, 244, 246 and Fox Sports every day throughout the week. More information is available at http://www.guntalk.com.

I spent Sat. at the TCMS VIII shoot, but wasn’t around for all the pre and post festivities in Wimberly.

I know. I really want to. I’ve been super busy trying to get my moms house ready to sell and move her over here to my neighborhood. I spent the day fixing doors and installing carpet. I think I’ve finally got it ready sell though.

Hopefully next year. I really need to get that R1 out more.

Do you do this every June and was it hot? Had our company picnic yesterday...... 110 degrees.

It varies from year to year. The weather was actually pretty nice this year. It might have been around 90 this time, give or take. We normally try to have it when the weather is cooler, but wanted to make it easier for some of the younger school age kids to attend, so we decided to have it in June.

There’s 3 different product and price levels on that page. When I got the Barrett 82A1, I had to upgrade to get out to its full range.

I use this one:

The specs look okay, but the price “worries” me. You do get what you pay for in spotting & shooting optics.

What are you going to be shooting? AR-15 at 200yds? Something larger and longer?

WOW, that is the nicest spotting scope I’ve ever seen.

I think mine cost about 70 bucks and goes to 20x.

Frog, that Celestron looks like a good one. 60x and won’t take up much room in the range bag. I’ve never seen one that compact.

Yep. 30 caliber or smaller for the most part. 200-300 yards max. There aren’t any ranges around here to shoot farther than that. Mylife has a range with some gongs at 400.

It looks like a good deal for the money, but my concern would be that it might not be very rugged.

I wouldn’t worry too much about it not being rugged enough.

Mine is about 4 years old, works pretty good, and is not as nice as the Celestron.

The GR 20-60x80 Kit I have isn’t made anymore, but any of the individual scopes can be had w/ tripod, case, caps, filters, as options.

I really had to bite the bullet to spend an add’l $2,500 for it, after spending $12,500 for the 82A1 w/ Leupold Mark 4 M1 Glass & BORS.

But man, it was a ***wet fantasy*** for me, and I love it. Wish I could come to the FR TexasCowboy Shoot, and let everyone have a turn at personally seeing what it can do at 2,000yds+...

The Leupold/BORS is sweet:

Then it'll work fine. I have 2 x 1,000yd ranges to choose from; one an hours north of Harrisburg, and another down in Virginia.

When I had the Family Farm, I made my own 2,000yd range for the Barrett & AR10s, and this 300yd range for my other hardware:

I was going to use my neighbor's CAT D-9 Dozer and move that earthen backstop back another 900yds and combine the 2 ranges, plus widen the lanes, and build proper platforms and booths, but time ran out before I closed the Business on 11/1/11. When I go back for a visit, I still do shooting there or at a neighboring friend's Farm Range.

I’ve seen some inexpensive scopes fall apart after 4-5hrs of
serious shooting in one afternoon, over the years. ‘Couse I still have that old ‘59 Bushnell 10x on my ‘58 Mossberg 144LS .22LR Bolt Action, but it’s not tough on glass, and both are in pristine condition.

Barska makes a few good, solid short/medium-range rifle scopes, but none HD enough to hand my Barrett, Beowulf or AR-10s.

Here’s their spotting units, which I’m not familiar with:

That’s a nice little scope.

6mmbr has a good write-up on high end spotting scopes.
http://www.6mmbr.com/spotterreview.html

That little Russian scope looks ideal for a quick trip to the range. I’d probably just keep it in my car.
