Priortity ?

Post by poppy mae » 18 Jan 2018, 22:22

Question , had the 204 now for over 12 months , great rifle set up with an s-tac , also had a spare slot for a 223 , which hopefully be filled this week with a 1-8 twist , So dilema , originally going to have one set up as a dedicated rifle , do i get a drone for the 223 or put a spare s-tac onit , and use the cash for a thermal spotter instead of the drone ? which would you reckon be more beneficial ? head says spotter but like the idea of the drone , Got 2 handheld digi spotters which work really well & truck spotter, Ward 800 , and homemade units which be fair are more than capable of 300yds shooting...thoughts?

Drone is awesome - but if you have NV you can shoot with already its a no brainer - thermal spotter, its a whole new world! :) You can just spot stuff so much easier. Quick scan of a field, no white splodges, move on to the next. Its amazing what you see sometimes with it, and how close you can get to stuff.

Your NV is sorted, so if you have the means, then it has to be a thermal spotter.

when asking for advice, please include what n.v device and/or illumination you already have (if any) and what rifles you intend to use them on...cheers

If I had the money I'd go spotter too, and sell some of the surplus NV rigs that are taking up space.

A correct grip on the butt & cheekweld is imperative for accurate shooting. :crazy: :lol:
