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.

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

Don't really need one for my 2X scope. Of course I do have an old 8X I think it is sitting in the cabinet. Now that puppy definately needs a clarifier. It came on a bow I bought with a Toxonics Basic sight.

I've thought about it and just haven't ordered it yet because I want to see how it shoots on the Mathews (STILL NO ****ING CAMS!) and I'll decide then
