I do have a bloop tube for my CM-2. I actually have two, a 6" and a 10". I'm not using either one right now because I personally haven't found them to benefit me. A lot of top level competitors use them but my personal experience has shown no benefit, but that's just me. The tube is useless if you are using a scope. The tube does reduce noise though which you may find beneficial. It isn't a silencer kind of noise reduction but it is noticeable.
I'm just now finding that using an occluder and shooting with both eyes open significantly improves my sight picture and is more worthy of your attention than a sight extension tube.
I would like to add that for those of us who need glasses it will be a BIG help to have prescription shooting glasses. Before you go to the optometrist get into position with your rifle and look through your sights as you normally do your shooting. While in that position pay close attention to the part of the lens you are looking through and you will find it somewhere in the upper inside corner. Your optometrist can have your aiming eye lens ground to optimize your sight picture if he knows how/where you are looking through the lens. The results are gratifying to say the least.
Ideally shooting glasses are single vision lenses and for most people they are your distance rx with a +.25 or +.50. Mine happens to be +.75
In shooting my prone matches I wear Knobloch frames with a 23mm lens and I'm getting another set of glasses made for shooting offhand in our NRA Light Rifle match.
I know this all seems like loose association, but since the purpose of the bloop tube is to improve your accuracy by a longer sight radius, I am just saying that an occluder and designated shooting glasses will have a greater impact on your accuracy than the tube.

Great post, thank you very much!

I do indeed wear glasses, but all to often skip wearing them at the range. I dont like saftey glases worn over my regular glasses and I dont have any specifically for shooting. I'm gonna look into that

In reading some of the older posts I noticed we had someone come into the thread seeming to take a little offense to our comparison of the CM-2 to the Anschutz. I don't think anyone here ever slammed Anschutz and if they did it would most likely have been me who was mis read. All in all, when it comes to shooting the old saying "It's not the arrows, it's the indian." is the most valid statement that can be made.

Just finished re-reading the thread ... nothing to be concerned about.
Normal give and take - I think.
