You may keep the "Fags" and Fag marriages up there in Canada. We don't want them. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Have enough of that crap around San Fransisco, Calif.

I'll send you a "mil-dot" anytime you want one.

    Does not the "mil" of mil-dot refer to the graduations being 1/1000 of some measure? I don't think it has anything to do with the military. I could be wrong, but then I am possessed of common sense.

    The angular distance between each dot is one MilliRadian. That is where the MilDot name comes from. Nothing to do with "MILitary".

    One Milliradian subtends 10cm at 100 Meters and 1 Meter at 1000Meters

    Regards

    I was fairly sure it had nothing to do with the military but then, the goofballs who write laws against our freedoms don't know that, didn't want to know it or didn't take the time to discover it.

    Now you've got me worried. I talked to Lilja the other day and they hadn't heard of this. So I ordered a Nightforce NXS with the Mil-dot reticle. I just hope it gets here alright

    Well guys I can tell you that Leupold won't send Mil-dot scopes to Australia any more.
    At least you aren't going through what we are at the moment. All pistol owners are having to surrender there pistols in a national buy back Australia wide (No Choice).
