I use “The Rightsight” a Stalling’s Machine product on my Palma rifle. (The one on the left in the photo) It is my front globe sight. I switched to this when I went to the Phoenix match in February. The sight I had was a 19mm approximately, and I had no idea what I was… Read more »

I mentioned in yesterday’s blog that I would explain my comment about how it was the ammo’s fault I shot a 9 out the top that lost my chances to win. Well, at least I believe it was the ammo’s fault. It certainly could have been my error but I did not call that shot…. Read more »
