Upside-Down Land

Ironwill III at Resistor in the Rockies - 1 hour ago
Flopping Aces is compiling a list of items that show we are living in upside-down land. Feel free to add your own in the comments. You know you live in upside-down land if: * You can get arrested for expired tags on your car, but not for being in this country illegally. * Your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more it doesn more »

The base I have is a Roedale Precision picatinny rail with a 20 MOA cant. The reason for the cant is that most scopes are made such that when you mount it the elevation travel will be centered in its range for the most part. Let’s take my scope, which has a total internal elevation travel of about 20 mils. If I used a flat base to mount the rings on and if the optic were mounted fairly low, I would expect to have somewhere in t... more »
