Useful Stuff

One of the things I hate about rifle practice is the inability to see clearly the bullet strikes on the target (unless using expensive Shoot-N-C targets) — and even more, scanning / photographing and recording the results for, say, posting here.  Step forward, this neat item:

Note
Download the free Bullseye Target Manager App to your mobile device (available on GooglePlay or Apple App Store) to seamlessly pair to the Target Camera System on-board Wi-Fi to view shot placement in real time!

I don’t have the two hundred bucks spare to buy this thing right now, but others might.  (And there are longer-range ones also available at Midway.)

Anyone know anything about this particular gizmo?

  1. Lots of videos on YouTube. I have my Kowa scope left over from my NRA Highpower competition days. Being a cheap bastid, I use white paper plates with orange post-it notes in the center for targets. You can staple them to just about anything. For the one time I actually wanted to see 223 holes in paper at 250 yards, I used Shoot-N-C targets and they worked great (with my scope). I with ghostsniper–the less batteries, the better.

    As convenient as this would be, I’d rather buy an expensive spotting scope. I don’t trust Google or Apple to not have an algorithm that tells them how many rounds of which caliber I’m sending down range.

  3. ghostsniper – How is the resolution on that Barska? I’ve tried “lower cost” telescopes as spotting scopes, and while they have more than enough magnification the resolution is inadequate to actually see even .30 caliber holes much past 100-175 yards, and 5.56 at 200-300 is an impossibility.

  4. I’d looked at similar devices in the past, but they were all quite a bit more expensive than this. At $200, it’s about as close to impulse-purchase range as such a thing’s likely to get.

    Too bad I’ll have to wait a month now, as they’re on backorder. At least once it arrives, I’ll have an excuse to get out to the range for the first time in a good long while to try it out. 🙂
