    Sounds good to me.
    I'm looking forward to the cooler weather, I went out there about 3 weeks ago and it was miserable.

    I'm in! My youngest son and I just got back from there. Even right now it's cool enough in the evenings, but of course in 4 or 5 weeks the entire day should be great! Plus I need someone that isn't a crappy shot to shoot my AK with Scope to check its accuracy :?I shoot well with the iron's but have never been all that good with optics, I'm trying to learn though.

    I'll try to remember. Conversely, if you see a charcol grey Honda Ridgeline, you do the same!

    yipper, I got a rail like the one you have and slapped a socpe on it. I don't know about it's accuracy cause like I said I suck with a scope :?

    I just got a "cheapy" NcSTAR 2-6x28 its got a range finder reticle though... I know a lot of people seem to not like NcSTAR but it seems fine for me???:?I got a universal bore siter from laserlyte. It worked well on my .22, my oldest son Ethan is a dead shot with that!

    oy! that's why. i got an NCSTar originally and it would not zero in on my AK. return it. i got a TruGlo scope...zeros in nice. It's a bit more expensive, but works nice.

    that scope is for a .22, but they package it with the AK mount for some reason.

    I've got it zero'd in according to my bore site. I even rechecked it after shooting about 100 rds through the rifle and it was still zero'd in. I don't think that the scope is the problem. Either way I'm going to keep it, 1. I'm probably stuck with it, most gun stores aren't real big on returns, 2. Even if I decide that I don't like it, Jake wants a scope on his shotgun now... I know - he doesn't need a scope on a shotgun but if the boy wants one who am I to argue???

    cool! i'll be looking forward to it.

    ETA: I just remembered that I did have trouble getting zero when I was first setting it up. Then I swapped the rings that came with the scope for the rings that came with the rail and voila! Maybe they just got bad rings??? I hope that is the case cause I sure like the scope, it's nice and clear and the compact size it good... of course I'm not really familiar with scopes in general :?
