The target beneath the 100 yard target is the 50 yard sight in target prior to the 100 yarder.The first shots are low and the cross hairs raised to zero it at 50 yards resulting in the bulls eye's.

Pretty fair shooting with slugs. Looks like you have another 1/2" of scope adjustment, may help on the eye relief. Just watch those eyebrows!

I will.I got hit putting it on paper shooting rifled slugs.The Federal were all right but when I shot an old Breneke the scope hit me and cut me.When I put the cross hairs on whatever I'm shooting at I have to remember to back my eye up a little or else I might get smacked.Oh well,it will be worth it when the deer drops and the price I'll have to pay for buying a cheap scope.

Points very well taken. In the end, I did get what I REALLY wanted. At first, I was skeptical of the 500 but some research helped put my mind at ease (see last post for the shell stop issue). You never know, I may end up with an 870 at some point in time. We can never have too many firearms, right guys?

Anyways, I did get to shoot some clay pigeons with her this weekend and she performed quite well. I must have put about 150 shells through her and she never skipped a beat. Every shell fired and cycled just like it was supposed to and left me wanting to shoot her more. BUT, I'm in my senior year of college so the weekend had to come to an end.

Post Don't feel like a De

Don't feel like a Debbie Downer. I wanted to know the real deal. I relziae other people might have different opinions and yours is only one opinion but I relate to what you say so I'm going to tread carefully in that arena. I appreciate your candor on your blog! Actually I have unofficially sold for a couple of people and I feel a lot of pressure when I have their items sitting around and don't get on them soon enough. I don't like that feeling so that was the first thing I thought of when I considered being a Trading Assistant.

Probably! Whether I'm at school or not, you probably come past my neck of the woods. Travel I-80 most of the way?
