    I would like to see pics and related details on the type of spotting scopes everyone uses at the gun range...

    This is my Winchester 15-45x60mm (WT-6) spotting scope that I bought quite a few years ago for $99 out the door at a gun show in Pennsylvania...

    Nothing spectacular but it lets me see .22 hits on a target at 100yds.
    Came with everything you see for about $50.

    High-quality BAK-4 prisms and fully multi-coated optics give you sharp, high contrast views
    Powerful zoom provides 20-60x magnification

    Long 18-15 mm eye relief and retractable twist-up eyecups are perfect for glasses and non-glasses wearers alike
    O-ring sealed for 100% waterproof performance
    Rugged rubber armor takes the bumps and scrapes of heavy use

    No Dutchs, it is in the settings here. I have tried and tried to change it, with no success. I'm sure when K and A return in the morning, this will be one of the first things they will check off the list.

    If you use the attachment way of posting pics, it shows up small. If you click the small image, it does open another window and make it bigger.

    Plus the software here on V Bulletin is different than the others ( GF, XD, Bersa, Marlin, etc )

    I use Photobucket and insert the media link right into the post, so mine is whatever size I make or want it to be...

    If you right click on my pic or even RR's pic and chose properties...you will see our image hosting url

    I do it your way as well. I can only guess it is because of the various photo formats, the auto resizing, and other factors.
