reached that age where I'M wearing bifocals... I've noticed lately that when I'm looking through my scope I have to use the lower part of my glasses to get a clear view of what I'm aiming at? any suggestions? cheap scope? Will a better scope help me see better?

Rusty,

 

I wear glasses as well (not bifocals).............I would think you could get straight glasses, non-bifovals.............I don't like wearing glasses while looking though any bio or scope (& sometimes take them off). Bio's can be adjusted with the eye cup. Scopes, as far I know, cannot. I don't think the quality of the scope makes a difference. I know my Nikon & Leupold's don't have adjustments for glasses. I do set my scope a little farther forward................... :two-cents:

I wear progressive trifocals. I do fine by adjusting the focus on the scope eyepiece to match my eye glass vision with my cheek on the buttstock. For binocs and spotter i wear those eye glass lanyards and drop down the glasses -- cumbersome but works for me.

hell you cant shot anyway socal duckie.............


it is my intent to do what is best for TOF, my bed side manners suck and for that I am sorry.
I am blunt and to the point and I do not have the ability to sugar coat it to save your fillings, So really if I tell you stop pissing on the carpet, just knock it off, man up and don't puff up carry on like soap opera. the rules here are really light so man up.

Some have asked way do you put up with all the crap some put me through. and this is it
I am tired of big business just taking form us outdoorsmen. most of the product is defective and does not work as stated. bottom line if there product sucks I want ever outdoorsmen to know about.

All I ask is support those that support you, this place is about real unpaid information, its real outdoorsmen not paid to say something outdoorsmen.........
