The Camera Sight
An Innovative Use Of The Simple Camcorder
I have never had an original thought in my life. And if I did, I wouldn’t know what to do with it. That is not a problem for Chris Self of Selma, Ala. He is not only an innovator, he has the ability to make his ideas reality.
Some months ago I reported on a Variable Gantry Mount (VGM) built by Chris Self. Instead of using clicks on the riflescope or hashmarks for holdover, the base mount has a small handle that moves from one position to another. The positions are aligned by screws along the mount to which the small handle is moved. For a big-game rifle with a long-range, flat-shooting cartridge, you might have 10 positions, each sighted in at 100-yard increments out to 1,000 yards. Sliding the handle to the 10th position takes only a fraction of a second, and it doesn’t wear out the scope’s internals. It works! While that is only an example of the mount’s many uses, Chris has had great success with it on shooter’s competitive guns, high-powered pistols, thunderbooming rifles, you name it.
