The 411 on Gun Scopes
Gun scopes are magnifying devices that attach to guns for better accuracy. Gun scopes were developed in the 19th century for military purposes, but are now most prevalently used by sport shooters and hunters. Gun scopes help improve aim and sight for better shooting results, and they eliminate the trouble of lining up the rear and front sights when using a traditional iron sight.
If you use binoculars while hunting alone, it’s hard to quickly move between them and a rifle while maintaining accuracy. Binoculars, however, can make for a great complement to gun scopes when hunting in pairs.
Choosing Gun Scopes
Knowing your purpose is the first thing to consider when buying a gun scope. Most popular gun scopes range from 3-to-9 times magnification. Logically, the higher magnification range a scope has, the more you should expect to pay. A larger scale on a gun scope does mean more versatility. Hunting in places with dense forest would necessitate less range from a gun scope than if you’re planning to hunt in open country.
The most important consideration is clarity. All the extras, things such as turrets, special reticules and bubble levels, aren’t worth anything without clear vision. If you plan to do most of your hunting from extended ranges, be sure the gun scope has the ability to modify its objective for parallax adjustment.
