    I agree. I just upgraded? to Chrome (it's a lot faster) but I still have Safari and it opened up with Safari with no problem.

    CB1 sounds interesting

    Here's what they posted on Facebook yesterday.

    Sniper's Hide, LLC It's not infected, but we need an all clear from Google, we found it soon after they tried dropping it in, and removed it but between that time and our removal google scanned the site and flagged. There is no malware present


    It's up and fine today.

    I could never own a website... I would spend all of my time trying to eliminate the cockroaches that infest the web...

    Thanks for the update

    Eaglet,

    Have you purchased ColdBore 1.0 from Gus? If so, any immediate advantages to the user over LB3? Or are you still running LB3?

    Interesting article. Look's like Lowlight has pretty thoroughly tested a variety of ballistic software and decided ColdBore 1.0 and FFS are the most accurate, in his experience.

    By the way - Merry Christmas to ya!

    Ladies and Gents, Merry Christmas and happy new year to you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm using CB 1.0; when I did there was not much difference between the two but all twiking, fixing, updating as well as just plainly making it better is on the works for CB1.0 As time goes by the difference between the two is bigger and better, since we all understand that LB3.0 has come to an End!

    As stated all over the web, garbage in garbage out, we know that, but if we have healthy data going in, I trust CB1.0 no to let me down; specially at extra long ranges.

    Greetings to all!

    Just installed update 1.0.0.4 for ColdBore

    Here is a copy/paste of part of the email I received:

    This update incorporates the following additions:

    BALLISTICS Module

    The maximum range has been extended to 3500 yards/meters

    GPS/TARGTES Module

    A new feature has been introduced that allows to transfer a TARGET position as obtained in the MAPPING/COORDS sub tab to MAPPING/RANGING and TARGETS/STORE-EDIT sub tabs.
