@Johnksg Think I might go with a Reflex sight. I only use the AR as a toy and if we have some kind of insurrection.
That was me, a Machinery Technician. 3 years as a small boat engineer fixing everything from A to Z. A year as a main propulsion engineer on a ship and a TAD assignment on a lighthouse maintaining generators and anything else that broke.
@godallmighty well then it is a good thing we have the coasties and the Duck of Death to protect us!
I joke of course, I live 1mile from the CG station and they are great guys! I admire so much of what they do…
But it is still fun to rib 'em a bit!
The lighthouse was probably my favorite duty station. Good fishing and bikini clad women would stop in from time to time.
Meanwhile thinking… “Well that poor mother f*cker is screwed!”
where was it stored ?
@Turmeric1 In a hot dry climate until last year then out at the Oregon coast in a box in the closet. I’m going to take it out the next dry day and give it one more try,maybe I was just having a bad day.
@godallmighty I have friends with scopes that have trouble zeroing them and when I bore sight it they are way off. I am a fan of bore sighting before I head to the range, has the scope been bore sighted? It really gives you a good starting point at the range.
Color me stupid, I was just messing around with the scope and figured out that the turret marked with the r ,thought it meant right, really moves the cross hair up and down and the one marked with the “up” moves it left or right. Knowing this should make adjustments a little easier .
@godallmighty Well I did something similar once…realized I had the scope mounted sideways!
(Don’t tell anyone though, I still feel kinda foolish.)
leatherwood scopes used to make a left handed model scope. turrents are on the wrong side for a righty, and leftys as well. took me 2 hours to get one sighted in once, cause i kept clicking what i thought was right, I it kept movein further left.
aimpoint made the old 1st gen COMP M/ML ML batt and switch were on the opposite side of the sight, one of the ones i still got that works. (knocking hard on wood)
we have all had our moments with optics im sure…
