Mike I took mine to the GTAC range night and it worked excellent at 50 feet with good lighting...even for my old eyes.
I am seriously thinking of putting a laser pointer on it to save time trying to find the bloody target in the first place!!!

Just get a cheap celestial telescope, they usually always have a spotting scope on them! Then duct taoe all three scopes together! Chances are one will be on your target!!! :D

Nice
I just think it will be handy to see my targets when I shoot from 10-25 yards without magnification
I've been shooting at 10 yards and have been doing well, time to move to 15 or 20 and see how the poi changes

Even though these are no longer on sale, I snagged one today for $39.99 plus tax.... I convinced the manager of the West Kelowna store that living 2.5 hours away I couldn't get there during the sale, and she agreed.... *grin*....

Yeah their price match policy has changed!!! Bastards!
Hayley found this cool "Mancave" stamped steel sign for $39.95 three weeks ago, last week it was on sale for 25% off and they wouldn't give us the difference?!?!? WTF! Their policy is now 14 days not 30 for price match!

What is their money back if you're not satisfied policy?
Get a refund at the price you paid, then go purchase the one on sale.

Hmmm...I live in downtown Kelowna...I wonder if I could claim that the bridge was, uh...closed...and I couldn't make it over there. lol

Used to be that CT would honour their sale prices for a week after the sale ended (but only if you asked for it). I take it this is no longer the case?
