Choosing the Correct Power

 
SUMMER TRAVEL PLANS

THE NUMBER   1   METHOD FOR
CHOOSING THE CORRECT POWER:     For the 'Avid' shooter who spends more time on the Range than the Spouse chooses to like, but will tollerate, using this simple formula will get you started off in the correct direction.
  With your present 'vision devise' ie: glasses...contacts...Knoblocks/Champions...or just safety glasses,  [if] you need a better POST  you will need a POSITIVE correction or a  [+]  LENS... BUT...IF you need a better  TARGET  you will need a NEGATIVE correction or a    [-] LENS.   NOTE:  no you can't get one of each and improve both at the same time.
     If you can see GOOD all day long, but the sight-picture or lack of a sight picture, causes you to loose points, usually "Verticle Stringing"only at the 600 yd. 'Slow-Fire' stage,  you will need a  .25  POWER  LENS,  [+]   for Post   [-]   for Target.
     If you can see GOOD at the 200yd. line, but the 300yd. sight-picture is weak and causes you to loose points,  then you will need a  .37  POWER LENS,  [+]  for Post  [-]  for Target.  The 600yd.  line will be better, but you may find an 'increase' in power on some days, will Help that weak 600yd sight-picture.  NOTE:  Higher numbers indicate more power.
     If you have a BAD / WEAK / or  NO SIGHT-PICTURE   from the very first shot or sight-picture of the day,  I  Would  Strongly Recomend  that you see an eye Doctor to get your "vision devise" Prescription up-dated. OR ,  If  you can see 'down range' with out difficulty, but just need a better Post,  You will need a   [+]  .50  power or more. OR Target, will require a [-].50 power or more.

THE NUMBER   2   METHOD
     REWORDING THE FORMULA:

      200 YDS.     POST         =    +.50  or More Power
                        TARGET    =     -.50  or More Power

     300 YDS.     POST         =    +.37  or More
                        TARGET    =    - .37  or More

      600YDS.     POST         =    + .25  or More
                        TARGET    =     - .25  or More

       THIS FORMULA applies to 'Reduced' course of fire or even the novice shooter who needs a little help with the sight-picture on that odd occasion that the Spouse releases the chains and 'Allows' you to 'go ahead, go shooting, the chores will still be here when you return'.

THE NUMBER   3   METHOD
       NEXT METHOD OF TESTING YOUR LENS REQUIREMENTS :

       Ask the other shooters on the Range about their sights.  Most shooters are more  happy to 'Show Off' their new equipment or accessories than they are to talk about the last score fired.  If no one has the 'correct' type of sight you want to see, the alternative is to decide the range of power you may need from the charts, and order those   2   POWERS  for testing on your Range.  With a deposit, I will send to you the   2   POWERS  you choose.  You then have  30  Days to return  one of those   2  lenses for deposit credit to your credit card account.   NOTE:  Discussed in the PRICES and SHIPPING  OPTIONS  Text on another page.

THE NUMBER   4   METHOD
       For some Shooters, a telephone call  with a REAL PERSON'S VOICE is the only way to deal with a matter you're not very familiar with ie: VISION...  Bob Jones 602 840 2176  before 10:00 pm  MST.
