BAH, HA, HA, HA, HA, HA, HA, HA...….. Confused  





My wife and I joined here about two weeks ago, since then we have gotten no sleep, we don't eat (lost 20 lbs. but that is good), and have caught a severe case of DAD [Dart Acquisition Disorder], also you will soon need another dartboard when you wear the one you have slap out, and then there are the DJs [Dart Jitters], I dare not even think of those!

Smile Smile Smile Tongue 

This is a GREAT place, with even GREATER People - but it'll grow on you kid - be careful!!!

LOL x 10,000,000     Big Grin

Ever hear; "You get out of anything what you put into it." - That is very true - here is where that saying came from; 
"Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might;" Eccl. 9:10a KJV
AND, remember, ALWAYS "ENDEAVOUR TO PERSEVERE"!

and lean not unto thine own understanding.

and he shall direct thy paths.    KJV

Off to the left or right, the line appears to be broken up.

Most of the folks who purchased the sight mechanisms were underwhelmed, but found the above DIY sighting device beneficial.  Just saying.

thank you for taking time to share this.

All though, what is a plumb bob???? Lol

Essentially, a string with a weight fastened at the bottom end that hangs down.

I'm left eye dominant and when I tried this I found that I wast actually lining up straight. Be interesting to see if I can gain some consistency by lining up exactly the same each time.
