Re: Best Chronograph?

Everyone should have one of these things in his home - right Len.

Ian, I have a system like that on order right now as we speak. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Best Chronograph?

Hi Brent.

I went to the site. Thanks!

I think the 35P does everything I need it to do. I don't know why I would want to measure pressures etc. If it doesn't blow up in my face while test firing it, I consider it safe! [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

Seriously, I looked at the accessories on the 43PBL and I'm not really intersted in that stuff right now, now do I want to invest the time to play with it. There are far to many other things I'd rather spend time doing, like killing critters, fishing, dirtbiking and snowmobiling with my two boys, hunting down a new woman, etc. You get the idea.

Re: Best Chronograph?

Len, do they ship to Alaska? [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Sheldon, the screens plug into the 43 instead of the 35, the 43 plugs into the laptop with a serial cable, that's the only difference in the hook up.

The 43 basically adds is a file system to organize and store test data as you test.

The option to plug in a strain gage as well as the acoustic target is there if you want to use it too. Anyone considering wanting these additional feature down the road might look at investing the money in the 43 they would have into the 35P is all, if you already have a laptop this is even better.

Alot of people just are not interested in the 43, some dream of one. Considering you already have a laptop, a big investment itself, and computer work isn't exactly new to you, I figured I'd point out some of the features and setup of both and you'd see what intersted you.

Here is a link to a photo album I have, it shows how my filing system is set up and organized, there's a pic or two in another album there too of the actual test screen. You might be interested in one down the road...

Re: Best Chronograph?

Texas,
You better watch what you say about CDN dollars, they just got to 48 cents last week! For a while they were at 62 cents, as in one hundred U.S. dollars buys 162 CDN dollars.
You guys get a hell of a deal hunting up here, if they will let you cross the border [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
Sorry to tell you, those were U.S. dollars I quoted. Forgot to include wages for a computer-electronics geek to run all the hardware while you are shooting, plus an appropriatly large-chested assistant to make and serve the coffee...

Re: Best Chronograph?

Much easier, as long as you have a clean background. They do a computer check on most fellows at the border. You simply fill out a form and give them 50 shrunken Canadian dollars. You can bring more than one firearm and the permit is for a year, I believe.

Interesting that your gov't has pretty much copied that bs for us to cross into the U.S. with a firearms. We must have the form approved in advance from Washington ATF, whereas you can get it all done at the border office. We must have a valid hunting licence or invite to a gunshow or whatever to apply for the form, but your gov't kindly does not charge a fee.

They are trying to take all the fun out of hunting, we've got to hold on and not let them win.

By the way, since this is originally about chronographs, I have crossed several times with my trusty 35P's but since there is no serial number visible they have to put a sticker on to prove it came down with me. The sticker has a number which is recorded on the greencard.

Damit boy agreen card sounds like we are treating you all like aliens [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]. Well at least you can smoke a real good cigar [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] after a successful hunt. Hope you know what I mean.
