    Yeah it was quite puzzling. Went out to confirm it was fucked to send it in to be fixed and makes a miraculous come back to perfect. Oh well we'll see what happens. Has a lifetime warranty.

    Have you heard of other scopes doing something like that? I've heard of turrets going bad(they continue to get much worse quickly) but this doesn't seem to match anything else I've read/heard when searching. He was kind of hoping it would just get worse so it could get fixed. Instead of left with confusion and questions.

    FIRST TIME EVER FIRING A HAND GUN TONIGHT. I picked up my ccw gun today, a SCCY CPX-1 9mm and spent time going through safe loading and unloading with snap caps today. And have been doing so with my S&W 686 .357 magnum. For the past couple months I've been reading magazines, online articles and religiously watching youtube vids on reviews, gun safety and range etiquette and went for the first time tonight.

    I put 90 rounds through the 9mm. I put 50 rounds of .38 special through the revolver and about 18 rounds of .357 magnum hollow points.

    The revolver. It made up for my lack of experience in the accuracy department. Less recoil due to the size. I didn't expect the 9mm To be so loud either (I had my ears protected). It almost seemed like the 9mm was louder than the .357 magnum even tho the magnum was a hotter load.

    You need to get a full size pistol like a Glock 17 or SW M&P pro or Springfield XDM

    Yesterday I put 400 rounds through three different AR15's and 110 rounds through some 9mm pistols.

    Here's some targets with the pistols from 15 yards. Yeah, I'm no pro shooter.

    Only 2nd time shooting it. Not sure what to expect from a sub-compact. 10 rounds.

    Second time shooting this one as well. A little better than the Glock. 20 rounds.

    My first and favorite pistol. 20 rounds.

    Pistols at 10-15. Shot a SAO P226 Legion, fucking awesome. I'm not sure what they do with those Legions but it felt like it had an action job. Trigger was probably around 4lbs.

    AR's and SCAR's at about 130 yards, somebody blew up back half of a old motorcycle and we shot the hell out of the front half/engine lol, forgot to take a pic.

    6.5 Creedmoor at 910 yards on steel and 890-979 yards on small propane tanks.

    Oh and @Chesten_Hesten the scope seems to be working fine now. 1 click did appear to be about 3".

    Was supposed to shoot grouse today but it snowed a ton. Ended up just shooting my recurve off the back porch for 15 minutes, didn't even bother to go get the arrows, I'll do that later.

    I shot a friend's DA/SA 226 in .40 smith over the weekend... that was one hell of a pistol. It definitely just jumped to the front of my to buy list. I won't be springing for a Legion, though. That's a little too much price tag for me at the moment.

    I was sitting there with a USP45 Tactical as well, and the SIG was easily the better pistol. I'm not sure if the SIG was a base model or what; he said he hadn't done anything to it but it had his battalion insignia and OIF stuff engraved on it from the factory (it was part of a mass order). Don't know if anything else went into it.

    I have a p227 and have shot p220, p226 and p229's before as well. They all shoot great. The Legion is better.

    So it does have a factory action job.
