i made a post in the contender thread a few days ago about my walk about contender. It was a 10" Bull Barrel contender in .22rf. with a 1X4 compact rifle scope. I had installed a little light weight sling that you could sling over your shoulder air borne style and carry with little interference. The advantage of the rifle scope was that you didn't have to get your head back as far as with a hand gun scope and if you have ever hunted with a scoped handgun and taken rests off of what ever is available for long range shots you know what I'm talking about. With the rifle scope and a non recoiling .22 you can shoot from positions and rests that can be and are very accurate without having to get your head back so far.
After the dreaded contender bug returning after 25 or so years I drug it out and decided to replace the compact rifle scope with a little holographic sight. I think this will be even more handy out in the woods. It is a little light weight cheapie sight with a 3MOA and a MOA dot. I've had it on a semi-auto .22 rifle for a couple of years and have found it very effective and accurate. It never lost it's point of impact in the two years so I think it is a good one. In a few days I'm going to be out in the woods trying it out on some gray squirrels.
