    Had my share.

    It's so deflating too... knowing it can come at any time with that many shots.

    Thanks folks.

    Gonna play around with some peep sizes, I'm sure the one I have in right now is a bit too large for indoor.

    A 1/4" is HUGE.....that is the size of the housing with nothing in it. That's what I use for hunting.

    For target I use a 3/64" with no clarifier, with a yellow #1 clarifier I use 3/64" or 1/16", with a green #2 I use a 1/16" usually.

    Most times now I use a #1 in 1/16" since my eyes aren't as good as they were 10 years ago when I shot a 3/64" for just about everything

    Thanks, I'll try those sizes.

    I recently caved in and started wearing glasses , still getting accustomed to finding a comfortable sight picture.

    I thought the larger peep would help, but as it turns out I end up ditching the specs and shooting with out them.
    I'm happy just shooting at a semi-blurred white circle, if I can see the X I tend to spend too much time aiming at it anyway.

    They giveth, and taketh away...


    Swapped to a pretty small peep tonight, helped big time.

    Got warmed up, and was ready to rock n roll, 1st shot: X
    2nd shot... 4

    The rest of the round went pretty well, and dumped one more on about the 55th, last shot of that end too.


    Finished with a 298 46X, picked up 5 X's from last night... so that's a positive

    AAAHHH!! That's the worst!! If a 4 is going to fall why can't they all be at the end of 10 or 11?? At least then we can blame it on being wore out by the end
    Be good or be good at it.
