    While I think laser sights on guns are kinda stupid. I got this one and think it's the coolest.

    Got sick of always asking and being at the mercy of somebody else to give me distances to target at a match. Also my eyes are not that good and I can't see those long 300 or 400 yard targets before I shoot. It would be great if I can look for them with my rifle scope before it's my turn to shoot but we can't have all kinds of people pointing their rifles around. Some guys have binoculars which I was considering. I also need a spotting scope. Problem is that I lug around too much gear to match already. So I decided I would try to get a decent laser rangefinder with enough magnification that it can double duty as binoculars or a spotting scope (really poor spotting scope, but might save me some hiking)

    Anyway I have already laser range finded (is that even the right term) all kinds of stuff out my apartment window. So bitches better recognize I got my dope for where you live, where you park, or where you might try to hide.

    I'm thinking that's what I'll spend my stimulus on.

    I've got a bushnell 1500 I use for Golf as well as sighting in yardage. But I found out to 300+ yards it's not as accurate.

    Yeah i looked at those. I saw they were listed as 300 yards and under. I made sure I got something rated out to 800 and w/ 6x magnification. The glass is OK clear but not as good as my scope of course.

    I got a nice discount at $245 +tax. I figured between the ammo of extra shots, and if I can move up one place every other match it will be worth it. Heck moving up one place I can make it up with loot off the prize table.
