Re: First Focal Plane Vs. Second Focal Plane

I dont think that I have a set distance that I shoot at it might be 75yds it could easily be 1250yds, its the Target/Terrain that dictates how far I have to shoot,

Re: First Focal Plane Vs. Second Focal Plane

Westclife01, another thing you don't know about me, when you assume I have money running out my rear end is, I grew up in the Midwest. On Iowa farms, shooting deer with the one and only shotgun we owned. I have done my share of crawling into get a 20 yard shot on a whitetail with only a front bead for a sight. The type of shooting you refer to and do is not strange to me. Neither is leaving the last biscuit for the brother or sister that did the most work that day, and feeling good about doing it. While mom and dad took less to leave more for the 5 kids. So don't whine to me about me being some kind of hero, or $800 being "chump change" like I was born with a silver spoon. Hard work is where I got my money too. Don't look for pity here. It is all about hard work, years of it and choices.

Jeff

Re: First Focal Plane Vs. Second Focal Plane

Lets get back to the subject at hand and leave the cheep shot out of it. It has been said a couple times the SFP users are the bashers. I think not.

There is a place for both FFP and SFP, no reason to get upset and take shots over someone preferring one or the other they feel suits there type of hunting or shooting better.

Thats it, twist the blade now.... What made you think I wanted pity ? You don't know the first thing about me. But now you are pushing my buttons and I will abstain from going any further...

But you knew all about me when you referred to me as a "Hero" and $800 being "Chump Change" for me. You took that shot at orkan too. I don't know him and we may have our differences but I never assumed he was made of money either.

Yes, lets end it, what is said, is said. Back to the FFP / SFP differences and why we prefer what we do, and how we do it.
