    I don't know, but I bet whoever it is won't be using a stock rifle with peep sights. :D :D

    I think we ought to have a little friendly match using only rifles as
    they came from the factory. I realize that includes the Anschutz, and Kimbers, and Coopers, but it would still be fun.

    By the way, what's the plural of Anschutz :confused:


  3. Hey Jay!...

    Im'a thinkin' it's Ahhnshit'z...;)

    I came close to buying an Anschutz, but I got the M12 instead. I know what the M12's can do, but I would've been seriously upset if the Anschutz gave me problems.

    So what do you think about the "factory" match?

    watch out deadeye

    Not a terrible idea.

    Only I've got the scope on there pretty well and I'd be hesitant to take it off.

    But then what fun would it be to use those tangent leaves, eh?

    I'll go for it next time I have the gun out. Maybe give the long range critters a little better chance :D.

    I think peep sight Jay will school me with my 3-dots, though.

    I feel like whatever type of iron sights you're used to will work best. At my age, the peep sights allow me to shoot without my glasses. The pinhole effect works wonders.

    Hey Z......iff you're still looking for a Redfield peep sight, try this.......it's for an M12, but you can see why I jumped on the M12 with the Palma sights.


    I'd like to propose a "just for fun" iron sights match....honor system, post the best target out of three...one five-shot group per target.

    Sounds good

    Do I have the right idea that we're starting up another postal match?

    I think I'll grab a box of Rem targets, click in the scope, do some groups, grab the best one and submit it.

    Then I'll go ahead and do up the iron sight thing. I sure am looking forward to banging in that dovetail tangent leaf sight. With the spring under it. With a hammer. ARG!

    I like my sight a lot, so I'll see what I can do with it.

    Are we doin 50 yard targets or what with these iron sights Jay?

    I can only get out weekends, and it looks like this one will be pretty crappy, but I'll do what I can.

  10. Yep! Jay...

    I'll hang with ya'll...don't know about the "postal match"( chances a'me mailin' t-gets somewhere's is kind'a slim)...still prefer the web pic postin' thing myself...Z, re-scopin' the Marlin right now...Look out!...:p ...

    I know nothing about postal matches, other than I've heard of them.

    How's this......iron sights, peeps, or notch and post...

    best of three targets....at 25 yds....and at 50 yards...five shot groups...post the pics here.

    Prize will be getting to share the fun of shooting with each other, as well as bragging rights 'till a better target shows up. :D

    somebody will have to tell me what diameter the bull is supposed to be for 25/50 yards. :(
