Sighting in a new scope.

    And finding that you really like it, is there any better feeling?

    First you do a bit of research, you get a likeness for it then the more you read about it until you finally know enough about the shagging thing that you could take it as a subject on Mastermind.

    Then there is the whole "feel" of it when it arrives, the twiddly bits and the style and the features, even the sounds it makes.

    Then of course the nervousness before trying it for the first time, and then the elation when it actually works and you hit the target with the first shot, the second and the third.

    A bit of fine tuning then and after a couple of shots you say to yourself "that's more fcuking like it!"

    That is the feeling that won't beaten too easy, the natural high and confidence boost gelling with a new scope can give you. I got it again this morning when I tried out a secondhand Sidewinder I picked off another member here recently.

    It is some buzz in all fairness.

    used to do a bit a rabbit shooting when i was young, we used to get a 'Major' cigarette packet which had a red crest on it to set the sights from around 80 yards [my garden length at the time.] if you could hit this it was ok for the rabbits head.

    Only draw back is when you miss you cannot blame the scope or rifle. :D

    You can,when it turns out to be a shoddily put together POS,that held zero no problem,when mounted and zeroed at the right distance,but then when you go to test it by "walking the zero" to different points of your target,and then back to zero on the X.The scope wont hold the zero anymore,because it has overwound the adjustments as the stops were broken from the factory.:mad:
