    I got it close when I first put this new sight on, and today I went out and finished the job. Now I know which setting works best for me, but I still need to do more shooting just to be completely familiar with it.
    After I'd sighted it in, I was doing some target shooting and noticed a squirrel up in the trees behind the targets. I stopped shooting, hoping it would come down where I could get a safe shot, but it stayed up high. I waited a while, then went back to shooting.

    I don't know how to tell you this, but your Ruger has a tumor on it!

    :D I got it cheap, used, from a guy on AR15.com. ($30 total). I wanted to try one, and so far I'm liking it. I think it'll help with some of my problems focusing on anything close. :cheers:

    Might want to keep an eye on whether or not it turns completly off.

    I had 2 Muellers and when you turned them off it would still have a very faint dot which will drain the battery. I'm told from several people that's something that can happen with all brands of these sights.

    You're right; I've already noticed that happening. When I turn it off, I always do a visual check just to be sure. :wave:

    Mine wouldn't turn off at all unless the battery was removed - there was no checking :mad2:
