good video pitchy, I love the 35 it is a hammer on deer. I have some with the peep sights, I do not like them. I shoot better with the iron sights.

Thanks gents, I can shoot this rifle better with the peep for some reason maybe because it`s a little further from my eye as my vision is poor on close things.
It`s a fun gun to shoot as the recoil is light plus they're just plain cool.
I haven`t deer hunter since I got this rifle quit a few years ago or it would of bagged one for sure.

Unfortunately I have to prefer the tang sights or an optical. I'm having a tough time seeing the front sights with a barrel mounted sight. One help is a globe sight, wish I had more than the one Dockendorf. I can't seem to find a Lyman low enough for good set up....
A measure of the shooting was the 185yd gong at the Event. My brother & I were tearing it up. It's good to know we can still group well.

Sounds like a good day, I`m having trouble with all open sights nowdays pistols are real tough.

Good to hear from you Pitchy ! Pretty good shooting with old eyes. Surprised that you didn`t have snow on the shooting bench . Enjoyed the video.

Thanks Sarge, boy it`s been a long time since I`ve said that brings back memories.
Winter has set in now, had four inches of snow the other day but almost gone now but cool in the 30`s.
