Eyecup being folded out of the way...

Leo (Hook'em) had mentioned he has a way of folding the eyecup off his scope when the situation demands it.

Queried Leo on the YellowFT forum, but I'll do it here too...

Love my eye cup, and have it setup for "normal FT"s sitting shots, but sometimes its not ideal for forced positions.... and would love to know what kinda gizmo Leo is using to make that happen......

Hi Dan,

I just fold the side-guard, as shown in "AFTER":

Thanx Leo!

I over-thunk it...

Actually, you won't have to fold it after all!...
