or is it just another thing to screw with ive been shooting pins my whole life and am pretty successfull in open but im curious to see what the whole world of scopes is all about tell me yalls oppinions
thats smart stuff right there thanks i think thats exactly what ill doHere's my take;
In ideal situations a scope on a 3D range has some distinct advantages like improving your ability to clearly see the spot your aiming at in better detail. It simplifies your sight picture and it gives you more of a variety of aiming aperatures.
On the flip side, if its raining you're screwed. If your looking into the sun at a target in the shadows, you're screwed. If you shoot a clarifier and it gets dirty or wet your screwed. So if you shoot that type equipment you need to be prepared to deal with the possibilities.
I like the single pin and a small .10 pin at that. I also like to be able to dial in the exact yardage and hold the single pin on the spot I want to hit. I normaly shoot a scope without a lense but I am considering trying a lense again.
I would suggest that if you shoot a scope with a lense, set two scales. One with the lense and one for just the pin no lense. Put one scale on one side of the slide and one on the other. That way you can always pull the lense out if it rains or if the sun is staying in your eyes.
