This sight is JUST AS BAD as going in to my local gun shop.
 
I thought I was done buying rifles and optics.
 
I came in here looking for confirmation of what my local guy was trying to sell me for a scope for my FNAR... and now after a few threads about the new 22lrs coming out... I find myself doing all kinds of research and planning buying a 22lr.  It was on here that I first saw the 22lr from Colt.
 
Not only that, after reading all the info on red dots and ACOGS in here I have 2 or 3 optics in mind for my own 22lr and an optic to put on a 22lr for my buddy that is having his 40th birthday.
 
Yesterday I took the FNAR to the range and ended up with this hit pattern at 150 yards
My eyes SUCK, I simply can't see that far well even with a 4-12x42 scope, so now after reading all about scopes on here I am now considering something with more magnification power.
 
It hasn't cost me anything just yet.... but I am on the cusp of spending $1,000+ on 22lr rifles, a couple hundred on two short range sights, and who knows how much on a scope with more magnification.
 
The heck with Obama, THIS SITE is bad for my financial situation.
 
As you can probably tell, it takes me quite a bit of time to buy something, but when I do it is usually pretty well thought out.

Another reason to roll your own! Cool

Seems that most of the married guys hide the purchase for as long as possible. 
 
If you can safely slip it into the collection unnoticed...go for it! You only live once,
why not buy the things that make you happy? Big Grin

My technique Bud is to take an empty hard case out of the house on the pretext of showing a gun to a friend.  Then when I bring it back with a new gun no one is wiser.  Course tryin' to hoard the money unseen in the first place is a different trick!

I picked up some "sighting in new scope" rounds in .300WM.  They were the "reduced recoil" variety, for $21.99!  Should have gotten 2 or 3 boxes.  I think they messed up!

I'd have to agree!  Better go back and get more while you can.  Thats a great price especially for mags.

I'm almost there....... my buddy is all set up for it, only he didn't really mess with rifles until just recently.  I think he got a set of dies for the .260.... .300 won't be far behind!

I think I made it through the initial impulse but if I go back in that store while that sale is on I'm doomed! Shocked

Oh I'll Get a nice varmit or tactical in 223, you can bet on it.  This one will be exactly what I want though no compromises.  The gun at Dick's is nice and close to what I want but not exactly.  The price is what almost hooked me.  The Browning A-bolt was a great buy and I am not sorry I did it!  It is a beautiful gun and I will really enjoy it!  However, this one I want to make sure fits me better.  The A-bolt only has a 13.5" LOP.  I have ape arms and my LOP is 15.25".  So an adjustable LOP stock for the next one is a requirement!

Gunophile sounds BAD and would probably require you to be on a national register somewhere.  How about a Gunologist? Cool
