The History of Shepherd Scopes is a history of ideas. In 1979 while in a sound sleep, Dan Shepherd dreamed he was hunting deer. He looked into his scope to check its zero and saw that there was a bright light dead center of the scope and another star like light at about ten o’clock high. He turned a dial on the scope and the light at 10 o’clock began to move toward the light in the center of the scope. He kept turning the dial until both lights were aligned in the center of the sight picture. He knew the scope was re-zeroed! When he awoke the next day he could not get that dream out of his head and by 1983 the Shepherd Dual Reticle Scope, was on the market.
I have personally used Shepherd Scopes for 39 years. I have hunted Elk, Deer and Antelope with Shepherd scopes and they have out performed all scopes. The Dual Reticle System (DRS) is the most simple ranging system to use ever made and it is still true today. The scopes are a one shot zero even if it is moved from one gun to another. They are also the fastest scopes in the world for range finding and target aquisition. Shepherd scopes also have the highest level light gathering capability. They will show your target in extreme low light conditions when other scopes will not. I also sold Shepherd scopes for many years and never had one fail. These scopes were also tested by the military against an M60 machine gun with night vision in quarter moonlight conditions for speed, accuracy and target aquisition. Guess who won the trials. There are none better. No Brag. Just Fact.
