But apart from the bad news from the State Police refusing to process my CCW applications... In the mail the same day came this:
Eotech. AA batteries (I hope they never go the way of B batteries.) and a .308 reticle that looks like this:
Perfect for my M1A or Garand because while not ideal because of the necessary scope placement, I still get the eye relief I need and want. Dunno how useful that 1200 meter dot is, but you never know. It's been a long time coming, and I've saved me pennies.
When I turned in on and pointed it at my knee... OHNOES! It must be defective. It's all blurry and junk! Wait... to the internet! Nope, according to the FAQ, it's blurry because I am looking at the reticle, and not a target in the near or far distance. My knee is too near. Point it at the van down the street and... perfect. No point it at the van down the street BEFORE you mount it on your rifle, dummy. Oh jeez.
I don't think it will help that much against cat sized flying bees. But zombies? Oh yeah. Even sprinters.
So it was a mixed mailbag.
Dumb idea, also won’t happen - So, some guy wants to get a bunch of gun guys to march on Washington. Only with their loaded rifles. I’m told he tries this every year and no one but a few...
