Vectronix Terrapin arrived today!

Today I recieved a Vectronix Terrapin that was ordered several weeks ago. I have not had much time to play with it but had to range something. Looked through the manual and found how to set the units to YARDS. Took it out front of my office and found the furthest object I could see, A cell tower wayyyyyy out there. 2139 yards, resting on the bed of my truck. NICE very impressed.

A solid well built high end feeling and looking piece of optical goodness and very compact compared to what I asessed from pictures. it literally is a 4"x4"X1 3/4" thick piece that will easily fit in a jacket pocket. Can not wait to get up in the caprocks and stretch the legs on this thing. Just had to share my joy!

Very nice!! What did you think of the release trigger? I find it very easy to fire while remaining on target.

Re: Vectronix Terrapin arrived today!

ooooooooooooooh aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Do some ranging around a particular small object that is positioned on a slope to to get a good feel for beam sensitivity.

I'm about to pull the trigger on a LRF of some sort. With personal experience with the Leica 1200 I'm very comfortable with its ability to range back into and between trees/rocks/etc.

I suppose for actual taking of game the 1600 would be more than sufficient. However, w/a 375 AM handy one my wish to stretch things to increase things to increase confidence for game taking distances.
