I saw one demo'd and it seemed to work as long as things weren't too bad as far as weather.

I think it's a decent go between with the other system i posted. Still have to use some marksmanship skills, especially with windage.

I wouldn't use one myself. Trading skill for technology is ok as long as the tech will always be able to be serviced. Using it as a crutch instead of learning the skill properly makes you dependent on it. That I don't like.

That's understandable, knowing the skill first is definitely better, since tech can, has and will fail.

1 hour for touch
24 hours for reassembly
7 days for general use
30 days for hardcore use and abuse

What ammo do you guys recommend? Eventually gonna reload and looking for quality ammo so i can compare a box to reloading equipment/supplies. Hard to compare things and know what to look for when I don't know what is considered good ammo? Any recommendations on brands, grains, type, etc?
I like Federal Hydroshok and HST. Other good choices are Speer gold dot, Hornady XTP and FTX, and Winchester PDX

Nothing like 70degrees for T'giving holiday. Went to the gun range today and went thru about 1200 .22's and 200 5.56's. My 14-yr old and I play a .22 shooting game that never gets old. We mark a vertical line on the backstop embankment and place 3 golf balls on the line. Then, we each load 25-rd magazines and shoot at the balls. The object is to shoot the balls onto the other guy's side on the line so that when you're done with the 25 shots there's more golf balls on the other side than on your side. A well placed shot, just barely grazing the bottom of the ball at either 4 o'clock or 8 o'clock will send the ball up to 20' in the opposite direction towards the top of the embankment, where it will then roll down the entire embankment and veer to the left or right depending on what it hits.

There's a ton of different strategies. It's great because it's never the same shot twice and the ball always does something different, plus you can screw the other guy by anticipating his shot and shooting a split second prior to him so he wastes his shot. You can even wait until he is concentrating on one particular ball, then shoot one of the other balls, followed by shooting dirt or broken clays, etc... that may be around it to cover the ball and hide it. I had 2 balls on his side that I had hidden and when he finally got the ball he was shooting at onto my side of the line, he couldn't find the 2 hidden balls and had to shoot at piles of debris hoping the ball was in the pile. He was so frustrated he burned up his last 10 shots and never found either of the balls. We had half the people at the range gathering around to watch at one point. Good times!

The 3 golf balls lasted us the whole time, they're nearly indestructible.

Finally got to shoot my PSA yesterday! It worked flawlessly and only too two adjustments to zero.

200 rounds including 60 rounds rapid fire and not a single hiccup.
