I love mine. Invaluable. Wish it had a lighted sight picture, though. Hard to see in dimming light.
Did the same thing you did; ranged all the trees around me, and made mental notes.
They will set-off laser equipped radar detectors too! Har!
really? Ill have to point mine at the the cheap cobra radar detector i got in the t/a and see what band i get lol.
Took it out hunting and field target practicing on sunday and took some 8" shoot and see targets out and got my trajectory re-mapped from 20 all the way out to 100yrds which i had done several times before just by pacing it off, but found by checking my paces i was stepping to long and off by almost 10 yrds once i got out to 80 - 90 yards...
Once i got my yardages correct i started realizing the mill dots on this centerpoint scope actually work about perfect with a 40yrd zero at 16x i got -1 mill @50, -2@60, -3@70, -4@80, -6@90 and holding on the post for 100 seemed to work great... After i got her all dialed in had a preety good first day of hunting with it taking 3 rabbits 1@38yrds and 2@20-25yrds.
Feeling pretty confident in my long range shooting decided to hunker down a ways from a little ground squirrel bunker ranging the area of activity between 60-70 yards and made my longest confirmed kill with an airgun to date a laser confirmed 68yrd headshot on a dirt nutter. Had a couple other solid thwacks but nothing else recoverable, all in all was a good day and like the extra confidence knowing exactly how far away what your trying to shoot at is...
