Here's the deal.... My Dad taught me how to hunt when I was 6 years old. Every year since then, we've hunted together. I get two weeks a year off a year, and hunting with Dad gets one of them. However, Dad is getting old... a problem I'm sure most of you can attest to. He is a left handed shooter and owns a lefty Savage 11 7mm-08. It used to wear a Nikon Buckmasters 4.5-14x40, but he always had an issue finding the sight picture. Now I'm no professional, but I've been shooting accurately for a while. We've spent hours at the rifle range with my Savage .22lr and .17MHR, both capable of sub-moa groups, teahing him about form, breathing, muscle relaxation. For some reason, I always see him sliding his cheek foreward and aft on stock, looking for a clear image. He rarely finds it. The last straw came last gun season. We stuck him in a treestand overlooking a small hill above a swamp. A nice little shooter buck stepped out, and Dad prompty sent a round into the treebranch six feet in front of him. I was furious. It was, literally, the only object in his way (he was shooting offhand). Short story long, I've decided to get my Dad a Red Dot or Reflex sight to put on his deer rifle. No magnification, and he'd be limited to about a 75 yard shot (long for the woods where we hunt). It must withstand a 7mm-08 recoil without losing Zero. Also, please try and keep options budget-minded. ($300???). Thanks!
