Re: back up sights
I use a Glock Model 20 (10mm) for my "back up sights"... It's fast to draw out of my shoulder holster and holds 15+1 rds in case things get a bit hairy. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]
Or you could get one of the Swarovski new Z6 series of scopes... They come in very wide magnification ranges like 2-12x50 and lower... Best of all worlds for predator hunting where ranges vary wildly.
If it's long it can't be wrong... LDHunter (Long Distance Hunter) from the Piney Woods of NW Florida. I hunt clearcuts for scrawny whitetails... ;)
