When it comes to quality and performance, the Elite product line is the best Bushnell has to offer, and these scopes continue that rich tradition.

Featuring ED Prime Extra-Low Dispersion glass, fully multi-coated lenses and premium BAK-4 prisms, the new spotting scopes deliver amazing color resolution and contrast while providing exceptional edge-to-edge detail. With a rugged armored housing and fully waterproof and fogproof construction, this scope is built to withstand the elements. Bushnell provides extra all-weather insurance with its patented RainGuard HD water-repellant coating – a permanent lens coating that causes moisture to bead up and scatter less light – providing clear, crisp views in the unclearest of conditions.Both spotting scopes are available in a versatile 20-60x magnification range with either a 45-degree or straight eyepiece. The scope's 80mm objective lens helps capture as much light as possible for optimal performance in low light conditions. For added comfort during extended periods of glassing, Bushnell has enhanced the scope with a twist-up, adjustable eye piece.

The new Elite spotting scopes have a protective case and retractable sunshade, and are available for a suggested retail price of $1508 for Model #780008 (straight eyepiece) and $1554 for Model #784580 (45 degree eyepiece). Bushnell also offers several accessories for the spotting scope, including an SLR camera adaptor, various tripods and window mounts. The new models complement the existing Elite 15-45x 60mm spotting scope.

Skills Check: Present Arms

We refer to the draw stroke as the presentation at Gunsite. It’s a better explanation than simply “drawing” the pistol, because it describes the act of presenting the pistol from the holster to the target or threat. In our “basic,” five-day pistol class we expect students to present the pistol and make hits on targets from 3 to 7 yards away in 1.5 seconds. Most students can do this in two or three days of training.

Mental Focus vs. Mental Awareness

Shooting at the very edge of your skills envelope requires tremendous mental focus and well-developed shooting awareness. However, some shooters believe that shooting awareness and mental focus are one in the same. They are not. Using pistol shooting (combat or competition) as an example, what is the difference between the two and how can it help you hone your shooting skills to a razor’s edge?
