Terrapin testing today.

Went out this morning hoping to see a coyote, deer or other targets to range.
Terraping was mounted on window mount and conditions were overcast. 3d turned allowing it show if it picked up more than one range flashes(up to 3).
Black cow
1643
1646
1695*
1645 flashing 1695*
1690*
1636
*= probably ground behind cow

Brown cow
1651
1650
1653

Furthest range was on a single cedar tree 4400+ yds. Took 9 readings with 5 ranges and 4 fail to reads.
4406
4403
---- fail

4408
4404

4405
I'll post some pics as replies of deer and a horse seperately as my connection is slow and times out.

    Tumble weed in yellow grass.

    Terrapin on window mount. Light clouds, sun at 6:00. Camera 5x zoom. Aiming circle purosely offset so you can see tumble weed. Had 3d turned on so that it would show if it picked up closer or further hits. 9 readings taken. *= further behind or miss.

    Re: Terrapin testing today.

    I just placed a order for a pair today.........they told me a couple weeks but I'm betting it will be at least a month, based on the recent order volume. I met a guy last fall with a terrapin range finder, I don't know which model but was impressed enough to try thier latest version.

    I'm hoping for similar results, being able to cvonsistantly range out to a mile will make shooting rocks and steel all the better

    This was a good test for the beam divergence. Many Rf's would have stumbled here.

    Good job
