  1. Reblogged this on 323 Archery Shoot and commented:
    Good LORD! As bad as my vision has been getting, I’m not sure I could SEE a target that far away with the 6x lense in my CBE. (The clarifier drops the magnification to 4x…)

    There’s a story about how when Chinggis Xaan was selecting his generals he had them shoot at target from what worked out to half a mile away, and choose those who came closest. I never really was sure how accurate that was, but this makes it seem pretty possible!
