Nah, it's the lure of the good ole reliable voucher system from the pre-epay days of accounts receivable. (It was a state tax commission, not the infernal revenue servicers.)

Paper vouchers kill trees; trees provide shelter and food for bears; dead trees yields dead bears, the only good kind of bears.

In my experience (3 classes) it is just a sure fire way to make me scream 4 letter words and throw books. Once each semester was over I took each book out and BLEW THE STINKING CRAP OUT OF IT. I think I put on under 2# of tannerite.

Question. I have a new (to me) scope for my Remington 700 30-06. Only one problem, it doesn't fit. The iron sights are in the way (barely). Should I buy a taller set of rings, or should I remove the sights (something I don't want to do because it looks good on the rifle, and would leave a view holes.)

Is there a third option?

some sights are secured on the M700 with screws. just remove the rear sight and use some of the plugs to fill the holes. you can usually get them at a gun store or MidwayUSA. they shouldn't cost more than a few bucks.

That would work. I'd just hate take the sight off though because I like having a set of back up sights on the rifle incase the scope fails for some reason.

If I have too, I will though.

my take on iron sights for back-up is for hunting purposes only. in that case, you could do either see through rings that allow you to use the iron sights, but they tend to put the scope up pretty high is the reason i don't like them, or keep the iron sight and screws in a small bag with a screwdriver to use them in case of need when you go hunting. many of my rifles don't even have the option of iron sights, meaning the they never had then in the first place. but most of my rifles are for target shooting and a scope failure would be a rare occurence anyways.

I guess I'll take it off then, and order some plugs.

Thanks for the help. I'll post a pic when I get the scope on.

Here she is. BTW, this was my first gun, and definitely my most beautiful one. (Pic is kind of crappy though, I guess the flash whited it out)

The rifle is a Remington Model 700 ADL, and the scope is a BSA Contender 6-24x40mmAO. Luckily, the old scope (Bushnell Banner 3-9x40) uses the same rings as the new one, so I just had to swap them out.

I had that problem with my Mark II pistol. I ordered taller rings because I didn't want to take the sights off my pistol. I shoot the pistol both with and without the scope.

How can a hammerless automatic be single action? I was looking at a Kimber Solo, hammerless single action auto.
