Leupold BX-2 Cascades 10x42 Binoculars by Cristy Crawford

I love my Leupold BX-2 Cascades 10x42 waterproof binoculars.  They have ventured too many states and viewed many amazing sites while in the field.  Not only am I an avid hunter and outdoor woman I also love thrill of competition. My Leupold binoculars have been a competitive advantage on the 3d archery range day after day.  While other binoculars tend to fail in low light situations leaving the archer unable to see the target rings; Leupolds remain visible even on dark ranges with dark targets.  The overall weight of the product isn’t heavy and won’t feel bulky after an entire day on the range.  I recommend this product to any competitive archer looking to gain a competitive edge without spending a small fortune.

Shooting Tip - Trigger Pull - by Karen Butler

Hi!  I was shooting a Rimfire tournament the other day, not doing near a well as I wanted to.  I know what went wrong....lack of practice!  My lack of practice led to some very sloppy trigger pull in the rapid fire sitting position, I had a great group, just in the 8 and 9 ring at 9 o'clock; not the 10 ring.

Trigger pull should be consistent steady gradual pull and proper trigger finger placement.  I looked at the target and instantly knew what I did....I wrapped my finger too far into my trigger.  For best placement for a 22 rifle, you should use the middle of the last pad of the tip of your finger.  I unfortunately, could tell that I had used my finger at the first joint to pull...therefore, pulling the muzzle of my gun slightly left with each shot. the lesson here is practice more, and remember proper trigger pull!
