Review: I've really come to enjoy the sport of paint ball. But never as much as when I got my Tasco 30mm Red Dot. This thing draws a large amount of attention and compliments from others at the paint ball field. You know your marker is cool when the local paintball shop owner tells you that others have come in talking about how "sick" your marker was, that past weekend....

I enjoy playing a patient game of woodsball, when possible.

My marker is setup to first attempt to sniper my target, and if that fails, follow up with some good full auto action.

With this red dot, I can literally get very close to one shot one kill.

The key to fast use of red dots is to look through and past them with both eyes open and your marker up in front of you. This effectively "merges" the red dot into your complete field of view. This method is very useful when you are not secluded in a good sniper's position (i.e.: not wearing full camo and/or not laying in a shaded patch of bush)

When properly snipering, the one eye closed method works just as well.

For the most part, as stated by many others, where you place the dot, is where your paintball is pretty much going to hit!

This sight was bought at:

It has 11 brightness settings, plus up/down & left/right alignment of the dot.
Same as the BSA 30mm Red Dot scope.

I got some Butler Creek #04 See through flip-up scope covers to protect my scope when I'm not in a good sniper's position. They compliment the scope perfectly... I keep the covers closed until I'm ready to snipe, then I pop 'em open and take the shoot.

You can see my setup here...
Conclusion: Thank goodness for skeptics, else everyone would have one of these, and I wouldn't have an advantage over them.
