    Default Shot w/ my scope today... WOW!

    I just put my new scope on my OG. Its the first time I've ever shot using a scope and holy crap! what a difference. I'm using a 4x lense w/out a clarifier and its still 10x easier then without one.

    No wonder everyone is shooting insanely high X counts... I can actually SEE the X now (And I'm only shooting at 9 yards (in my basement)

    I'm thrilled!

    and after screwing with it for about 2 hours I've discovered that I cannot shoot the new scope off my OG. There isn't enough L/R adjustment. Basically there is a "dead spot" where I cannot get the scope to go and thats exactly where I need it. I can probably do it with some more adjustment and adjusting how the scope is mounted but since it isn't going to be on the OG anyway I decided to stop before I break it...

    and wait for my stinkin cams to come in... COME ON MATHEWS!

    I'm patiently waiting for the right time and right price on a bow so I can start shooting my scope again. 4X at 9 yards that X must look huge to you. And I too open presents and then open presents its just what makes us men. Maybe thats why there are so many good women archers around.

    yeah its a standard vegas 3 spot too so its not even a baby X hahaha. IT pretty much fills up the whole scope...

    I wonder what the 6x lense would look like

    The 6X lense would look just like the 4X lense. But when looking through the lense the X will look larger.

    Dreadly do you shot the scope with yopu specs on..

    There use to be a big ol scope for hunting many years ago it might still be around. A man could put some RainX on the lens to keep down fogging.
    I wonder if you could put it on feahters. probally smell for hunting. HS
