Relax, no rabbits in this one :43:

Pretty slick little laser RF from Simmons. Nice and light and under $99.

how quick does it give you the yardage? i played with a cheap one time that took a few seconds while my friends Leupold is instant.

A couple seconds. It's not the price point of the RF that makes them take awhile to laser a target, it all depends on the range, size and reflectivity of the target. Also your wobble on a laser at 300 yards is huge on smaller targets. Take a laser pointer and point it across a large room on the wall and check the wobble. Now magnify that wobble out to say 300 or 400 yards and you can see why trying to laser a small target like a rock or pig is tough.

Hard targets like buildings and signs have the best reflectivity. Trees next. Animal hides are the least best for reflectivity. Darker targets reflect lasers better than lighter colored targets.

Out past 300 yards you almost need a tripod if you are lasering small targets to keep the wobble manageable.

On tip is if you can't get the range on what you are after try and find something else to laser next to your target that appears to be the same distance.
