    Going out of business

    After years of producing the reticle used by IBS any many shooters for personal use, I believe the market has been saturated. Sales have been very slow for the past two years. Another production run of 75 reticle does not seem practical. I do have 3 remaining reticle for sale.

    I wish to thank the nearly 300 shooters who have purchased in the past.
    Thanks, Frank

    As someone on the IBS records committee I want to say thank you. Your reticle has pretty much ended any differences of opinion on the committee. Again thanks.

    Can I assume someone else makes and sells these scoring devices as well? What would a new club do in the future for scoring assuming none were available?

    Like we should be doing anyway. The reticle changed score shooting from best edge to center to center. If you think a reticle is the only right way, simply stick a bullet in one the reticle has called out and usually the bullet will be tangent. Perhaps its OK to cheat everyone equally but not in my book it isn't.

    A plug isn't perfect either. I prefer the reticle. I've scored a bunch or targets and I feel there are fewer issues with the reticle.
    Much more than this one example but a wet target is a big one.

    If the plug

    is so bad, why does the NRA still use it? Having scored a lot of targets I feel the plug results in fewer arguments brought about by the interpretations of where the reticle should be positioned on a shot.
