Early Birthday Gift
Though my birthday is Monday the 24th, the wife gave me an early present this evening.
I saw it at Xtreme Guns in Richmond the other day and she went back and got it. Pretty cool and Targetvision is a Texas company (Friendswood).
A couple weeks back, I bought myself a new AK47 underfolder, which finally shipped today
Looking forward to trying both out if the range isn't too soggy this weekend.

That is very cool stuff. I look forward to hearing how clear the camera is and how easy it is to use.Political Correctness Is Modern day McCarthyism.

Got to try it out today, I am impressed. I was able to see very clearly and the app was easy to use. The only rounds that we a little tough to see were .22lr. That was more a function of the targets, I think, than the camera. I was able to see 5.56 on a different target clearly. I definitely would recommend the camera. Lucky I have a wife who indulges me. I guess it's fair, though. I bought her a Walther PPS M2 for her last birthday.
The AK ran fine, but I definitely need the red dot. My (soon to be) 53 year old eyes had a tough time with the rudimentary sights on the rifle, plus I think they were off a bit anyways. I grouped everything to the upper left. I'd tweak them, but the Hawke 12131 will be here Monday.

Wow! Nice gift! You really need to appreciate that lady. She's a keeper!
The Beaumont range has pit service at 600 yards, but you need someone to man the pits when you shoot. That's pretty impractical for a retired guy. Heck, everyone is working while I want to shoot!
The Baytown area range has a 400, 600 yard range but you need to walk down to the target to see the impact holes. What a bite that is.
That camera would work well in both situations. Good idea!

My missing album is back! Thanks, guys! You can still access the photos by clicking this link:

Interesting that you could see the 5.56, but had difficulty seeing the .22.If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.
Im a big fan of the .22LR for bear defense.
Just shoot the guy next to you in the knee and run like heck.
