    Kirby:
    I notice that's a rifle scope on that XP. How do you get extended eye relief from that scope? Most rifle scopes have ~4" of eye relief where 'true' hand gun scopes have ~20".

    With good muzzle brakes LR specialty pistol shooters are going more and more with riflescopes.
    I can see almost a full field of view (actually I can-but don't encourage others to imitate me) with my 7mm Dakota XP--Scope is a 6.5-20 FFP Leupold Mark 4.
    200 grain Wildcat with a MV of 2700 fps.
    Typically you see a full FOV get oriented and then back off a bit and hte outer FOV will go black.
    But with Holland's new Radial brake and I suspect the same with Kirby's PK brakes SP shooters can safely see all or close to a full FOV.

    Companies like Leupold, NF, S&B and a few others have a pretty good eye relief for high magnification scopes.

    There is literally no recoil to these big XPs. I was getting full view with the NF NXS 3.5-15 scope and never came close to having it touch my forhead. In fact, many rifles have a better chance at hitting my brow.

    These muzzle breaks REALLY Work well on big handguns.
