FAQ


Q:
What is an aperture and how does it work?

A:
It is the circular opening in a camera lens that allows light to get to the digital sensor. The aperture controls the "depth of focus". Depth of focus determines how much of the foreground and background is in focus relative to the main subject of the picture. A picture taken with small opening will result in a picture where the subject, foreground and background are in focus. This is the same concept used by the Magnetic Target Shooting Aperture. When the aperture is placed between the eye and the rear sight, then the front sight, rear sight and target are in focus while aiming.

Q:
What is a sight picture?

A:
A sight picture is the combination of sight alignment and sight placement. Sight alignment involves proper postioning of the front sight with the rear sight. Sight placement involves positioning the front sight on the target without compromising the sight alignment.

Q:
Is any special care required for the magnets?

A:
The magnets are very strong and must be handled with care to avoid personal injury and damage to the magnets. Fingers can get pinched between two attracting magnets. The magnets are brittle and can peel, crack, or shatter if allowed to slam together.

The strong magnetic fields of the magnets can damage media such as floppy disks, credit cards, magnetic I.D. cards, cassette tapes, video tapes and similar items. They also can damage televisions, VCRs, computer monitors and other CRT electronics. Never bring the magnets near any of these items.

Children should not be allowed to handle the magnets. Small magnets pose a choking hazard and should never be swallowed or inserted into any part of the body.

Never allow the magnets near a person with a pacemaker or similar medical device. The strong magnetic fields of the magnet can affect the operation of such devices.

The magnets will lose their magnetic properties if heated above 175 degrees F (80 degrees C).

Q:
Can the Magnetic Target Shooting Aperture be used for anything other than target shooting?

A:
No. The MTSA is designed to be used when shooting a pistol or rifle with open sights at a stationary target. It should never be used in any of the following situations.

  • Any shotgun sport
  • Hunting - regardless of the firearm being used
  • In a self-defense situation or during self-defense training
  • When shooting at a moving target
  • Committing a crime with a weapon
  • Military or law enforcement purposes
  • If your firearm is equipped with a scope, red dot sight, holographic sight, laser sight, aperture sight or any other sight-enhancing device

The use of the MTSA to practice sight alignment at home with a firearm is to be done at user's discretion. The distributor of the MTSA takes no responsibility for accidents of any kind that may occur while doing this.

(I know the above sounds a bit bizzare, but there are some strange folks in this world!)

Q:
Does the Magnetic Target Shooting Aperture add much weight to my shooting glasses?

A:
The MTSA weighs 0.1 oz.

Q:
What is the best way to store the Magnetic Target Shooting Aperture?

A:
Keep the aperture disc and holding magnet in the plastic case they were shipped in. This will keep them from getting lost. Keep the case in your shooting bag or next to your shooting glasses so you don't forget it. If you toss the case in your metal gun case/safe and go back at a later time and find them missing - check the walls of the case/safe! It may be stuck there.

Q:
What shipping method is used?

A:
The MTSA will be shipped by USPS first class mail for US locations. A tracking number will be supplied at the time the mailing label is created and will be emailed to you. Shipping to international locations will be by USPS International First Class Mail.

Q:
Can the MTSA be used on prescription glasses?

A:
Yes. Be sure the rubber pads on the holding magnet and the aperture disc are clean of anything that could scratch the lenses.

Q:
Who do I contact if I experience issues or problems or have questions?
