    Though my birthday is Monday the 24th, the wife gave me an early present this evening.

    https://targetvisioncam.com/collections/spotting-scope/products/targetvision-lr-2

    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.

    Very cool. Definitely report back on how you like it.
     
  4. That is very cool stuff. I look forward to hearing how clear the camera is and how easy it is to use.

    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!

    Interesting that you could see the 5.56, but had difficulty seeing the .22.

    I think that was more a case of the target than anything else.
