I'm getting back to editing the approximately 500+ video clips from my July prairie dog hunt. The wind can really blow in these dog towns. Watch how quickly it dissipates the dirt that blows off of this ones head at pellet impact. He was sitting right at 55 yards.http://www.youtube.c...feature=channelHere's a picture of the rifle and a couple of dogs.Posted Image

I just purchased a FX cyclone from AoA last week and scoped it with Leupold VXIII 6.5X20. After watching your DVD I think I should have purchased a scope with mil dot..???

It's s a Bushnell Elite 3200 7X21X40MM with mildot. Not the most expensive scope out there, but for what I do with airguns, it works just great. I have a couple of them.

Congrats on the purchase. Does the Leupold have the duplex crosshair? If it does, you have a couple of aim points at your disposal. One obviously, is the center point of the crosshair itself, and the other is the tip of the post where the crosshair meets the thickest part of the post. I have a couple of Leupolds with the duplex crosshair and I find that, by using those two aim points, they work well out to about 75 yards. Beyond that, and I want to at least have a mildot reticle.Another option is to contact Leupold. I believe they will retrofit a different reticle for you. It ain't free, but it is an option that you might consider. The Leupold scopes are awesome.

I bought that Bushnell on your recommendation in an earlier post. Nice scope for sure - don't have anything to put it on yet, but hopefully after I pay off some archery gear a Disco will be coming my way. I don't think mine has the big shade on it though - did the scope come with it, or did you put it on after? I'll have to check my box tonight.

At the time I bought it, they came with the scope.

Actually - the scope you posted a link to months ago was the Bushnell Legend 5-15x40 w/mildot. It's threaded for a shade, but it didn't come with one. Still - it looks like it will be a great scope.

My Legends came with shades.

Did a little research, and made a call to Bushnell this morning. None of the Legend scopes come with sun shades any longer, but - for $11 they are sending me one. There are two Elite scopes with the same dimensions that have the shades - part number RS19.Thanks for everyones input that lead me to this discovery.John - got my CPC decals in the mail yesterday! One will go on the truck today, hopefully the other isn't too big to go on a Disco stock...

That's interesting about the lens shades. I guess the stock of them they were closing out at MidSouth was old. I bought 3 Legends about a month or so ago for $159 ea and they all had shades. :signs1111cr:

I just phoned Bushnell to see if I could buy a sunshade for my Legend 5-15x40. Bruce, their Product Specialist, told me that unfortunately they haven't made sunshades for these scopes for 5 or 6 years and he doesn't know where I could buy an aftermarket one that would fit. If anyone knows of a good aftermarket sunshade that would fit this scope, please post. I'd sure love to have one.Thanks,RA

I bought one here...but be very careful re correct size for your scope...you may have to call them with your particular scope spec's/brand...http://www.opticspla...query=SunshadesBefore I found one,I made a temporary sunshade from my wife's hairspray (can) plastic cap...Posted Image
