    If you own a rifle with a scope on it, you likely either own or have used a bore sighter at some point to get a new scope on paper. There are a number of different types of bore sighters on the market these days, but most fall into one of two categories, collimators or lasers. The laser styles are fine for bore sighting, but that's all they can do. The collimator-type on the other hand can also be used for diagnostic work to verify if the scope is functioning properly.

    The FAT Wrench comes nicely packaged in this easy to open blister pack.

    In today's highly competitive market, companies catering to sportsmen often introduce a multitude of products that for the most part are useless and serve no purpose other than to lighten the customers wallet. Fortunately there are also a large number of products being offered that meet a specific need or perform a specific task that is commonly encountered as well. The hard part is weeding through the advertising dribble and determining exactly which category each product falls within.
