I have another question . In the near future a illuminated open square , dot or diamond shape figures are going to be able to move across the reticle with a rocker type button .You will be able to move that dot lets say to any area on the reticle you want . This way when your aiming you won't get confused on what spot on the reticle your going to aim from . Since its just a lit up movable mildot and your not adjusting your scope angle or the turrets and your not adjusting the windage or elevation ,Is it going to be against the rules to move the dot around the reticle to where you want it and then shoot your shot in hunter class . This reticle is not being made for FT shooters but for tree stand deer hunters who are shooting in low light and know about where the deer is going to be passing by and they only want one aiming point to be lit up . But FT shooters might want to use it also to be sure they are aiming at the spot they picked on the reticle . If you don't like this post please just don't answer it just move along . Some one else will answer it and stop locking my posts, I'm not being mean or rude, or breaking any of the forum rules as listed (now) so no call to lock my posts Locking post for no reason is rude and mean and something only a socialist democrat that doesn't believe in free speech would do . I'm just asking questions and stating my opinion . If you don't like either of two don't even bother read it or answering it .

Um, I'm not a moderator here. So I am not locking your threads, or advocating that they be locked.

But I know all of the Moderators personally. Perhaps one of them should send you a PM, explaining why it's not pleasant reading the same question asked and answered over and over and over.

Meanwhile, if you don't like my posts, you can place me on your ignore list. I was here long before you and will be here long after.

LOL. just ROFLMAO!

rws45user, to have any influence on this game you first need to demonstrate that you've: 1) read the rules; 2) show that you thoroughly understand the rules; 3) be part of a larger constituency that shares your views; 4) give back something to the game.

Sorry to say it, but I can't see that you've mastered the first two, let alone the third. And the 4th is years away for you.

FWIW, I suggest you spend more time reading and learning, and less time posting incoherent, 800 word, run-on sentences that discourage people from reading/caring about what you write...

My apologies to the Mods if it's felt I am being less than tactful.

rws45user,

That is a great idea.

I have seen lit reticles that only light up a portion of the reticle.

On my UTG scopes, I can step through 36 different color variations of the reticle. But that particular feature is of little use to me.

If you were actually moving the dot around, that might be seen as doing an elevation adjustment on the scope, so probably not allowed in Hunter Division.

If they could create a reticle that would allow me to step through which mil-dot I could light up, that would be something I would use. I have yet to see one though.

Thanks Bob Dye I will try to not ramble on and I will try harder not to offend. I do have a hard time ending sentences and I'm not very good at knowing where to start a new paragraph . I know now what I can and can't use as far sighting systems and you can laugh all you want but they did change the wording of the rule because of me pointing out a angled base was legal and they didn't want that so they changed the wording if you don't believe me just ask them . But I'm getting squared away now and I'm looking for a scope with a reticle with marking in it to use so I can do the class intent of hold over /hold under thing the hunter class does . Sorry I was just use to a single cross hair and moving it to where it needed to be ,but this picking a spot next to or over a dot or dash or tiny cross hair thing sounds like fun . I know that just picking the dot to shoot at is the easiest part and the hardest part is holding it on the target while you pull the trigger ,and I am going to start doing that now. It was just the scope rule wasn't clear to me and apparently needed to be changed .
Scotchmo I was in Tennessee a few years ago at a gun show and it was a prototype that is coming I'm thinking it was Hawke they had a big stand with lots of cool stuff . They were asking if people thought it was a good idea . I liked it and just remember seeing it . It looked like the push button scope someone has out now to change the brightness and color it might even have been the brand you have come to think of it . I will call around and see if I can find the maker and when and if they are going to make it . I'm a tree stand deer hunter and that's what it was aimed at being used for in the low light times of the hunt when you could only take the close shot just to make thing easier I guess . but I was thinking it might be good for FT. I don't know, just a thought . I have to be more careful around this forum with my thoughts and opinion on matters I'm new here so I have to limit my words until I have been here long enough like old timer Bob who took the time to type mean thing instead of just giving his opinion on the movable light source question . I just thought it would be a good thing for FT use because you could mark your spot and just concentrate on holding it there maybe its a bad idea I don't know . But if its a good idea may be If enough people ask scope makers to make one it would get one on the market especially the one that all ready has a prototype . But if the rule makes say no soap for you then it would not be worth looking into . I would think it would be the same as turning on your redicle inside light that lights up the mildots like the scope Scot has . I think it would be good for older people that have a hard time remembering what mil dot or dash they picked if the gun had to be lowered and then re raised to shoot ,it would be lit up for you in the spot you picked .
