The range I shoot at goes to 300 yards, so my thought was a magnified optic would help/entertain me at the range.

I was hoping a magnified red dot would be the best of all worlds, but it doesn't sound like it is.
It is and it isn't... they have their place, which is why the most popular ACOG is the 4x... the are the "do everything" combat scope. You can do everything with it... but the average civilian, even one who has high hopes and dreams of being the last survivor who walks out of the rubble at the end of the world doesn't need one.

Haha! No. Nor do I think banging a HK 416 barrel on a table is proper "gunsmithing".

Shotguns + wood poles = time honored adjustment.

Your average Aimpoint Micro or clone (Primary Arms, Konus, Bushnell TRS25) is going to give you everything you need for the Zombies. If you're worried about actual urban combat during the apocalypse or societal breakdown, and plan to engage humans out to 300yds... then a magnified dot starts making sense... other than that, stick with good iron sites or a real scope. For home defense, NOTHING other than good iron sites makes sense.
I see where you're coming from, but I'm blind as **** dude..

Just finished putting this little project together with used bits and pieces. LWD Timberwolf frame, OEM Glock slide, .40 S&W extended compensated barrel, Glock bits except for LWD 5# connector and smooth trigger, 22-rd magazine. Should be a fun blaster. No idea why I need it. May keep it if it's fun, but will probably sell it.

Default Finally got a hog in the WMA

One shot to the head from ~ 30 to 40 yds. No exit from a 168gr .308 round.

That's one tough noggin.

Come-on man - did you really edit out the spots and pool of pig blood?!
Otherwise - nice kill!

That's probably my doing... I mentioned a few dozen pages back about proper trophy posing.

It's been drilled into me for a long time now, that nothing turns people off of hunting more than seeing the "suffering" of a huge exit wound or pool of blood in victory photos. A non-sportsman will NEVER have any interest in engaging you in discussion, learning why you hunt, or be receptive to going out with you if you're photos look like a crime scene... they'll only see the pain and suffering of some poor creature you slaughtered for fun.

As a sportsman, you're probably stoked about going hunting, and naturally wish to share your passion with others. Your buddies who hunt won't give a **** about gross photos, but you will lose your chance with everybody else with just one look at the "ugly" side, and nothing you say will ever get them back.

When you pose for pics, there's a bit of etiquette that should be followed.
#1, pull the arrow out if required.
#2, put the ******* tongue back in it's mouth if required.
#3, wipe up enough blood that it doesn't look a vampire happened by.

A true sportsman becomes one with his prey. Either molest the corpse of that animal, starting with its genitals or stay the **** in your cabin as you are an embarrassment to sportsmen everywhere. Goddamn people like you are responsible for ruining the last manly activity left. Don't even get me started on fishing.

Good grief, you couldn't even make it past the eighth word in your post.

I take it back then; only one spelling error is impressive.
