    And now for something totally FUN!

    Been eyeing up a Truglo red dot (well, actually it is red and green) for quite a while.

    Finally retrofitted my Buckmark .22lr Camper with a rail and a red dot sight.

    Accuracy and speed while maintaining accuracy are both up. See for yourself... I shot 5,000 roundyards Now if only they made one that would conceal well...

    Umm, check your math. 10 x 50 = 500.

    Nice shooting, none the less!

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    When speaking of roundyards, one always should round up!

    Well, seeing "round" is defined as a circle.. and a "yard" is 3 feet or 36 inches, then one can only come to the conclusion that a "roundyard" is a circle of 36 inches.

    Wouldn't a round yard be a cylinder (ie, a paddock)?

    Good shooting, by the way.

    I was thinking maybe it was something like a square foot.

    OK, that does it. I'm officially revoking your Algebra 1 grade.

    Going from the calculated result of 500 to 5000 is not rounding, it's increasing by an order of magnitude.

    And, in your signature you don't provide a solution to the GG/BG ratio. Are you just trying to invent your own math? Wouldn't a better expression be GG > BG ?

    Reminds me of the Abbot and Costello routine where he proves that 13 * 7 = 28. 7 * 3 = 21; 7 * 1 = 7; 21 + 7 = 28.

    LOL, I rounded by an order of magnitude.

    As long as we're looking at old time math

    .22 * 50 rounds * 10 yards = 110 roundyardcalibers! And no rounding!
