laser on a gun

Postby backhoeboogie » Tue Jun 12, 2018 12:31 pm

Some folks here are work started telling me about the Piney laser. I mounted one on the side of my scope on the 22. Rolled it down on about a 55 degree angle putting it shining just above and to the left of the rifle bore. It makes it a little cumbersome to zero in since it is skewed, but I used the scope cross hairs and kept tweaking it until I got it dead center.

Varmints have been playing havoc on my chicken pens lately. That laser is amazing. I don't really aim much any more. Just put the green dot on them and squeeze. Their eyes glow green so it actually looks like a third eye when you put the dot between their eyes.

I've never used a laser before now but I am liking this little cheapo, after dark.

Our ancestors gave us this. They fought to make it what it is. All we have to do is defend it.

They work great for the distance they are sighted in at. We use to build wooden holders and electrical tape them to our 30-30s for hunting hogs at night with dogs.

I electrical taped a LED Tactical flashlite on the underside of the barrel of my 17hmr and zoomed it in as far as it goes and it works pretty great.

where'd it come from, how'd it get there?

This is my favorite, just move it to the rifle I want to use.

The dots don't work well on water tho...I have a cheap one on a 20 ga alongside a light.
It's close enough for 1/0 and beaver tho.

I have a laser on my 22 and find it great for pigs, my dogs will bale the pigs up but don't really grab hold unless they are very small, I can shoot the 22 from the hip and put the dot behind the ear of the pig but the good thing is I have full vision of everything and can be confident I am not going to shoot my dogs. Looking through the scope you only have tunnel vision and can't be confident of knowing where the dogs are.
