I've lived most of my life in the desert SouthWest. I don't even thaw out until 75 and I'm not comfortably warm until 95 or so.

Over 115 is time to put on a hat with a brim and look for shade nearby.

:shock: :run: :out:

I'd melt at 80. :( maybe a little warmer since I hear it's a 'dry' heat. I was riding my motobike down through the inter-mountain region through Radium and on to Norwood Colorado one fine mid July weekend and the thermometer at a corner bank said it was 115 degrees. It felt like I was riding through a blast furnace with no shirt on. My wife was soaked with MY sweat :eeewww: In this case speed didn't help cool us off. Miserable trip till we got back into the mountains. Up in the dry mountains 85 - 90 degrees was a nice day. Here (in Iowa), 85 degrees and 85% humidity is enough for heat stroke (mine, BTDT) when I'm working hard. But once it hits a hundred or so it's not that much worse than it is at 90. I still have sweat dripping off my fingertips just standing still in the shade :LOL: But I'm big and have a 'healthy' layer on me. :whistle: :funny:

Randy, the red-dot does line up with the center of the front sight post. Just wasn't able to get that angle with my new camera, its a big Fujifilm with HD.

I know, its to good to be true it usually is. :groan: Glad you like the shot-gun, I found the manual if you want it. If not I am sure there is a PDF floating around the internet somewhere.

[quote="Randy"]Cool! :thumb: Now if the dot were lined up with the top of the post then THAT would be co-witnessed?

No, not really. It's just the RD lined up with the front sight if you are at the correct angle. Once adjusted correctly, the gun will shoot wherever the dot on the RD is, regardless of cheek weld. The front post will only be on target when cheek weld is right. Front sight becomes useless if RD craps out. To co-witness, you need both front and rear sights, along with optical sight.

OK I got it now. :stupid: hard to believe I do so well in other areas and something that simple slips right through my skull. I'm still having difficulty figuring out just how a RD can be accurate. I've shot other peoples guns with them on and they work but I haven't had the time to sit down and figure out the science behind them. I know it's a simple matter of complex optics. :shock: :lol:

Decent explanation on Wiki

An easy way to see the importance of the rear sight when using Iron sights is to go to the range, remove the rear sight, and shoot some targets. Still easy enough to get on the paper at ~25yd, but bulls are another story.

I put a reflex sight on my TS, and had to remove the rear iron sight to get it on. Like others, I left the front sight on. One of these days I'll mod the reflex sight so I can put the rear iron back on, til then the front iron is basically useless.

Randy, you just gave me a great idea on how to test out my new camera. :doublegun: Just wish I could go afford to go the range more than once a month but I already maxed out my monthly budget. :(

Is the ability to shoot flares important to you?

You do realize that if you manufacture any other type of ammo to use in it you've crossed the line into NFA territory.

Yes, I know you do.

If you want to shoot pretty flares or you just like the cool look go for it.

If you're planning something else, think again.

Never got to play with a grenade launcher while in the military :(

I like the pretty flares, beats buying fire works. No lol I wouldn't risk blowing up myself or somebody else with homemade explosives.

Well you could use it for hunting/camping for emergencies, even on a boat for signaling if you need help or if your lost. If your vermin night hunting on private land this would be a cheaper alternative than a $1000 night vision scope. I have been harassed by unknown bi-pedals while camping in the big thicket. A flare would sure give me peace of mind.
I used one in the Army, I could nail tracks on a tank from three-hundred yards. I actually was complemented by a drill sergeant about it, he said I was a "natural."
