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...





•Aluminum body with green rubber armor cover
•Soft-side carrying bag (black with gray trim)
•Tabletop tripod
•2 way pan head with quick shoe
•Maximum height 15.25 inches
•Hard-side carrying case featuring:
•Heavy-duty black body panels

•Removable & adjustable shoulder strap
•Lockable latches

Here's the one I have:

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

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 just have mine saved in Window's Photo Viewer and load them as an attachment.

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.
