  1. A handgun shouldn't vary much between shooters, iron sights or dot. If it does, it is more than likely shooter error by one or more of the shooters. One or more of you are probably flinching, milking, or jerking the trigger or not taking up the slack before breaking the shot. Also, how much finger is placed on the trigger can greatly affect the shot. Out of curiosity, are you or your buddies left-handed?
  2. On the other hand, I know a couple adults who got medicated for ADHD as kids and they are now train wrecks. I know others whose parents declined to medicate them as suggested by their doctors and they are happy with their decision (both parents and kid), especially after seeing how others turned out. In the not so distant past, it seemed like ADHD diagnoses and the resulting Ritalin/Adderall RX were rampant. Every energetic kid was suspected of having ADHD. I’m not advocating corporal punishment, but many of the ADHD meds seem like a bad idea in hindsight. I’m glad they weren’t common in the 70s.
  3. ADHD was called hyperactivity when I was a kid. They didn't give medication for it, just more ass whippings. My mother was concerned that I was hyperactive and asked the doctor (maybe 1978?). He said, "Does he go to sleep ok?" Yes. "Does he sleep all night?" Yes. "Lady, all he needs is 10 acres and a 10 foot fence." I could probably still use it.
  4. Just because nobody stared at him or mentioned anything, that doesn't mean somebody didn't take note. I often see people OCing, but don't speak to them about it or otherwise make a fuss. Unfortunatey, more times than not, they are using a cheap Uncle Mike's or Fobus holster and would be easy to disarm. They usually don't notice or care that someone is standing two feet behind them and could easily take their gun. They are probably the types of folks who argue that OC is no big deal because they do it all the time and nobody even notices.
  5. I have a Leupold VX Freedom 3-9 Rimfire on a CZ 455 that I’m very happy with. They are usually $199 or so, but may be worth a look.
  6. Anybody else and I would have called BS, but Miculek is the man.
  7. It's arguably superior to both. It will kill pretty much anything a .308 will with less recoil and a flatter trajectory, especially past 500 yards. It is not more accurate, but is easier to shoot accurately at extended range because it remains supersonic another 500-600 yards after the .308 has gone sub. It was designed to duplicate the trajectory of the .300 Win Mag without rearranging the shooter's spine. It succeeded and the military took note. Go to a long range shooting match that doesn't require 5.56 or .308 and you will see plenty of 6.5s. Go to the Bass Pro ammo section and you might find about as many 6.5 CM SKUs as you will .308. It's not just another fad or designer cartridge and it has already taken a chunk of the .308's market share. The 6.5 CM is here to stay.
  8. 4x is plenty to hunt big game out to 150 yards. I used to shoot 3-gun with a 1-3 and could smack 12” plates at 300 yards pretty quickly. Also, that is a fairly small gun you will use. You may want try to keep the scope proportionate to the gun size wise.
  9. I would be interested in buying if you could ship it.
  10. I would lean toward a 1-3 or 1-4 with a basic reticle. Maybe something like one if these: https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1019637344 https://www.midwayusa.com/product/102210195?pid=246030
  11. I wonder how the IRS would view big fat rainy day cash funds. I was not arguing for more bailouts for airlines. I do question how those who are not manufacturers expect manufacturers to maintain profit and competitiveness (and therefore stay in business) if they are to abandon their JIT business model and adopt a “we are gonna set aside a huge stack of inventory just cuz” plan. We demand low prices and JIT helps achieve them. I doubt the people grumbling about JIT would readily accept the resulting much higher prices required to maintain the emergency stockplies people are apparently expecting.
  12. My wife wants to give it a try, but is worried she may botch trimming the Pomeranian and is scared to trim him. I see where I stand...
