    1x or reddot on a budget

    Having issues shooting treebears foutside my front door with the 3-9 currently on my JW15 shorty. Any recommendations for an elcheapo shortrange ooptric for very low light conditions?

    even a pure laser will do.

    got a laser dot on mine great at night for short range shooting from the hip just zero for 20m to 25m and use a reasonable headlight to see them then just walk the laser onto them and its all over for the pesky ocker.

    Is the dovetail to weaver an 11mm dovetail? If so, and if Konev isn't interested. I'll buy that and the red-dot off you.

    .....whose bullets will travel further than shot after passing through the wee beastie?
    It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn't.

    Maybe a subsonic .22 Short with its lighter bullet is safer for some furtive urban pest control. Main thing either way, don't be seen, and don't miss.

    Arms Act 1983 extract - they can do you over at a very low threshold:

    48 Discharging firearm, airgun, pistol, or restricted weapon in or near dwellinghouse or public place
    Every person commits an offence and is liable on conviction to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 3 months or to a fine not exceeding $3,000 or to both who, without reasonable cause, discharges a firearm, airgun, pistol, or restricted weapon in or near—
    (a) a dwellinghouse; or
    (b) a public place,—
    so as to endanger property or to endanger, annoy, or frighten any person.


    Note the word ANY person - including any mad hysterical nutter. You still carry the can.

    Have a Bushnell trs-25 red dot if you want it, the gold label one, $170 tyd. Comes with a riser mount adapter if you ever want to use it on a .22AR or a Troy Par.
    They are a nice sight for the money.
