You'll either have to get a zero pin gap capable sight or do like a lot of guys do, your 10 and 20 are gonna be virtually the same, if your shooting under 20, just aim a hair low. Firecats supposed to be pretty fast, might only need 20 and 40, but you definetly don't need a 10 yd pin any more.

Notice what Ben is saying. You don't need a 10 yard pin. Bows have been fast enough for 20 years now that it's not necessary. In fact all a 10 yard pin does is clutter up the sight picture.

I shoot a FireCat and would even suggest that you set your first pin at 25 yards. Then shoot it at various distances from 5 yards to 30 yards and see where your arrow hits. As Ben said, about 1" high at 10 yards, 1 3/4" high at 20 yards, and maybe 3" low at 30 yards.

If this is close you could set the next pin for 35 yards and the third at 45 yards. The choices are yours, but you don't need to get another sight. If you need to gap shoot then set your pins so ther is enough gap between them to see what you're shooting at. Pins that are clustered too closely suck. Especially when you have old eyes like mine.

If you don't plan on shooting farther than 30 yards then do yourself a favor and remove a pin. Shoot two pins set for 20 and 30 yards.
