So you think it’s time for a Riflescope

 

 

Just like most drivers should start learning to drive by using a stick shift, new rifle shooters really should start learning to shoot with iron sights. The idea for learning with a stick shift is what happens in an emergency when you have to drive a car that has a stick shift, and you don’t know how? The same is true for rifle shooting, with the point being, what would you do in the field on a hunt of a lifetime, if you fell and damaged your riflescope. You could always use your iron sights.

Now that being said, once you can shoot accurately up to 100 yards with iron sights, it’s time to get serious with your shooting accuracy, and move up to the “automatic transmission”, the riflescope. Now you are introduced to a whole new world, because when you look through a riflescope, you can see your target or game, as well as what’s around it. You also now have the ability, with practice to make longer and longer shots, while knowing that the shot you take will be humane and right on target. Your confidence in the shot will improve, and depending on the scope you choose, your accuracy will improve also. Today’s riflescopes are easy to mount, and with the click adjustments, you can have most rifles shooting on paper, and in the ten rings in no time. They are waterproof, fog proof and shockproof, and some even offer zoom magnification capabilities. The ability to spot that game in the distance, then adjust magnification to see if it is a trophy or not is priceless.
