    Do you guys think it's fixable:rofl:
    It was only a matter of time I guess. The readings it was giving me today were the worst yet. I had to stand back like 25ft to get normal velocities.
    So although it was an accident it felt a little good to destroy it.
    R.I.P. POS Chrony:angel:
    Now I have to get that old Oehler up and running that I just got. And don't worry, the screens are separate from the computer, so it stands a change.:supergrin:

    Sorry this happened to you- if it makes you feel any better, the thought of accidentally shooting mine is always in the back of my mind when I'm chrono'ing.

    Sight your gun in first next time- then chrono lol!

    I forgot to add that the chrony read that the round that I shot over it right before the round that hit it was going 3200fps.
    So at least it thought it got hit by a missile:rofl:

    Both of you behave yourself... the poor boy feels bad enough already, he doesn't need to be reminded by you that he can't hit the ground with a bowling ball.

    He does take a nice picture though... ever think of changing hobbies?


    BWAAAAAHAHAHA... oops, sorry... that was cruel. May your chrony find peace in a better place. :rofl:

    It's more of a smirk and it is directed at you.

    OH OH, just noticed, Indy's penguin is now an artist. Very convenient, a thick coat of paint and a little buffing will fix that chrony right up.

    Just so you know, you are more than capable of shooting the screens on the Oehler, and they don't give those away. So, you had it on a tripod and with a target behind it?
