You still need a spotter, but it is a LOT easier with these.
Thanks. I'll have to see what spotting scopes I can find.

Depending on the range you're shooting at, tex, I bought an el cheapo from Wal Mart that comes with a tripod and actually works pretty well for about $30.00 a few months back.

That's well within my price range. As long as it can see 100 yards, I'll be fine. Before I went to the range, I thought it was going to have targets farther out, but it didn't.
lol, at least I know somewhere else I can go to practice taking longer shots. Plus, I'll be able to just ride an ATV out to the target instead of walking.

Thanks.

(in other words, is it rude to stop everyone from shooting just so you can see your target?) (also know that I am not use to a public range like this)

thanks.
1.) Take your targets down when you are done. I would never leave a target up. Rude.

2.) In my limited experience, it seems a Range Officer calls a cease fire every 15 minutes or so so everyone can review their targets or set up new ones. Otherwise I would announce, "I'm ready for a cease fire if anyone else is." Then see if there might be others so you can coordinate the cease fires and not have everyone calling a cease fire individually.
