It discourages skill development.March 20 2017 at 2:52 PM

Response to I still think it's a good idea
There are plenty of target shooting formats that already give the distance to the targets. Field target (and a few other shooting sports) encourage range finding techniques. I think that any valid range finding technique should be encouraged. That includes reticle range finding and laser range finders.
Rather than simply giving them the distances, let them use/develop the skills normally used in the field.
Range finding is a "Hunter" skill. Focus range finding might be suitable for our short range airgunning, but it IS NOT a common method used with firearms. Let them use common range finding methods, and encourage it.
