First time 100 yards :)

Sighted in my new VORTEX Red Dot on my New Sport II ! I never shot 100 yards before or a Red Dot but a buddy helped me out. And Man 100 yards and 63 y/o eyes do not see much of a target lol
Adjusted a few times tried Red and Green and even bagged a Zombie. 10 rounds at the Zombie hit 5 times Missed the girl This old fart is a happy camper Not great shooting but for me I think ok ..

FYI the first few targets sucked so I did not post them :O lol

Mine is a Vortex Strikfire II 1x SF-RG-501 ,Works good for my 63 y/o eyes :O, SO I think your wife will like the Spitfire a little better . I never had a Red Dot before and just started using a scope on my .22 .. So I am a completer noob lol... My next one will be a 2x or 3x version if I plan on 100 yard shots alot! I did not think of looking at what power the optic was, Not a big deal for me as I may put it on my Ruger 10/22 and get the Spitfire for my Sport II

Yes she loves it and have to say the 3x helps alot and being use to my 4-16x42mm on my SR-762 was easy to just pick up and pluck away. I like shooting distance and with a 500 yrd range within a few mins of the house makes it easy.

Thanks for your update.. I will definitely check out the 3x version, It will not be out of budget I also read about a magnifier so I will get more info on that as well. For ranges I have a indoor range 5 minutes from my house but only 75 feet I think. Haven't been there yet.. The snad pit I shot at is set up for 50 and 100 yards and is free if you know the owner lol.. No 500 yard ranges near me yet! I bet i would not even see the paper at 500 yards lol
