How about $1.00 for half a dozen plus $1.50 to ship in one of the small padded envelopes. If I can ship them cheaper I will and refund the difference.
Can you show me a picture of how this would be used, exactly?

What am I missing here with these accuracy enhancing bands?  What does putting a rubber band around the sight tube do to improve accuracy?

I don't know what "I don't know" it seems.  Could someone fill me in, please.

Sure, the eye likes to orient concentric circles
The bands are a distinct color and the eye will try and keep the dot  , back circle and inner front circle
Concentric

It helps keep the dot centered.  The eye likes to see a dot in the center of the red ring.

Yes. I did a little “science” on the subject, although many can repeat it and have different opinions. IMO color of rubber band have to be same as color of the dot. So if someone shoots with green dot, I’d suggest using green rubber band. Different colors destruct eyes from concentrating on concentricity.

So am I correct in understanding that you have removed the standard rubber "funnel" from the back of the 1" UD and put the red rubber band in it's place?

I've been doing this for a while now.  Just to prove a point how many of you looked at the picture and actually felt a little uncomfortable because the dot wasn't in the center of the rubber band.
