Vertical pin sights

Recommended Posts

I used a Trophy Ridge Flatliner sight two years ago - I really liked the vertical pin design, but overall didn't care for the sight as far as durability and adjustments. Doesn't seem like there are too many other vertical pin sights on the market to choose from other than adjustable models.

So I'm wondering, are vertical pin sights not very popular? I personally would like to see more options.

Coots- I have tried them as well.. And really like the concept. However, I'm not totally sod!.. I like to be able to focus on my target! If the pin is for the exact distance, all the better, hair is going to fly and stuff is going to bleed!!!! With Vertical pins you get more horizontle viewing, which is great.. But to gap shoot(between distances) you have to cover your exact target, and what you cover it with is not your sight pin.

When I aim, I am for a hair, not a spot.. aim small , miss small. that type of sight did not allow me that.. But then again, what works for one, may or may not work great for someone else.

I say try it, you may love it.. It just didn't work for me.

Mostly I'm disappointed at the lack of options on the market with vertical pins. Maybe a single, moveable vertical pin sight would fit my style.

I had a Trophy Ridge and went and it seemes to always be moving and off. I switched back to my pendulem and now I'm happy again. I have never shot deer so well with this sight.

Not the cheapest sight but very sturdy,very light and a pin as bright as anything on the market.. Had mine for 3 yrs now with no problems at all . Have adjustments for 30 - 100 yds... startrackoc5.jpg

    • Why are we still allowing .......... 
    • So I know youre supposed to run the ice castle's AC from a 30amp outlet, but could I run it off of a standard 20amp outlet out of my garage? I would think if it gets too hot the 20amp fuse will pop? I've ran it for a short period of time before; but I was just thinking in case we have company over some time and needed some overflow sleeping arrangement... Its connected via a 50' 12 guage cord I beleive
    • Why are we still allowing deer farms to exist and spread disease?  
    • I'm assuming based on the rubbery consistency that some kind of silicon caulk was used.  Check this site out:  https://www.hunker.com/12314253/how-to-remove-a-silicone-stain-from-concrete   Good Luck.
    • Just bought a new house and the garage floor is a bit pitted.  I was planning on resurfacing it as a DIY job since right now will be the last time in the next 20 years the garage is empty.   There are a few spots where the pitting is pretty deep and the previous owner plugged them up with some sort of rubbery filler that has the consistency of industrial bubble gum.  Any ideas on how to get that stuff out of there?  I tried prying it out with a screwdriver, hoping it would pop out a like plug, but not so much.  Also thought I might be able to blast it with a power washer but I haven't tried that yet.     Any suggestions would be appreciated.  I can't even think of the proper search terms to ask google about this.
    • Thought this was a good pod cast   http://podcasts.joerogan.net/podcasts/doug-duren-bryan-richards
    • who has time for that? haha here is some stuff from the same biologist https://www.usgs.gov/staff-profiles/bryan-richards?qt-staff_profile_science_products=3#qt-staff_profile_science_products    
    • Holy craap!  There is pee all over the woods, the DNR needs to stop this before all the Deer and we die!  😨
    • Rank is the order on which you draw for your prefered spot. #1 chooses first. #2 chooses second, etc.   I was drawn as the #1 alternate for the MN DNR hunt, Hwy 61 & Warner Rd in St Paul.  This is a new one for me.
    • The article in the Strib.     www.startribune.com/louisiana-to-hunters-deer-urine-lures-might-spread-disease/490173741/   Why we are still allowing deer urine to be shipped and sold is beyond me.    That Joe Rogan podcast was very interesting and informative.   Well worth the time.
