EXACTLY!

That's why I have a 1-4x Super Sniper on back order.  And I'm waiting patiently mind you . . .

Even worse, the front sight post appears larger than life due to the slight magnification at such a close range.  The sight post won't disappear until 3x or so.
 
Here's my 1-4x NF with my ARMS #41B folding FSB in the up position.
 
1x
 
 
2x

The first shipment was already scheduled before we put the scopes on our site to start the back order process.  Due to the immediate and overwhelming order response we had to push up the second shipment which will be here late Spring.

At this moment we have not over sold what is coming in the first shipment but most likely we will be out before the next shipment arrives.

Ice is terrible.  Al Gore lied, hard to believe.  At least the scopes are almost home.

Super Bowl activities have been going on all week, tons of people are already in town.  Big time parties everywhere with major celebs.  DFW is set up perfect for the Super Bowl since Cowboy stadium is in Arlington (half way between Dallas and Ft. Worth).  The Packers are staying in Dallas and the Steelers are staying in Ft. Worth.
 
TXDOT brought in almost all of the sanding trucks state wide just for the Super Bowl activities.  Those poor guys are working around the clock and sleeping on cots at TXDOT.  I sure hope they are getting PAID.

Global warming.

And the Super Bowl is in town in a few days, that should make things a little more interesting.

We've had a skelton crew this week, many people just can't make it in, wrecks everywhere, everything is closed.  USPS and UPS did not even run yesterday.
 
This is coldest it has been in 15 years according to the news and the longest continous days in a row below freezing.
 
We could not even get the doors open here because they were iced shut.  I can only imagine what the airport is dealing with.

U.S. Customs is still the wild card.  There initiative to x-ray everything (which is a good thing) has slowed things down quite a bit but they seem to be getting the hang of it now and the delays are not so long.  When they first started doing this it created a bag up so they started routing cargo to different ports in the U.S. to equalize the load.  We got a shipment a few weeks ago that cleared customs in one day so that is encouraging.
 
 
They have been in customs for a while now here at DFW Int. Airport, which was shut down for the second time ever (first was 9/11) this time was due to the major ice storm that started Tuesday.

Of course thats what they said two weeks ago! Wink
 
In fact they are in Customs stateside.  When Customs decide to release them you'll hear Chris shout for joy!
