Ring around the eye...

Postby Doc » September 20th, 2012, 8:21 am

So anyone who's ever fired a larger caliber rifle will probably know where this is going...

So I'm sighting in a .50 caliber black powder rifle yesterday... First time in shooting with a scope in a very long time. I'm very traditional and am comfortable using hard sights. I wouldn't call me Annie Oakley, but I'm pretty good with just plain hard sights. Anyway, got her loaded up. Target was about 100 yards away, a half full container of cranberry juice. I leaned forward, right leg bracing and arm wrapped around the sling for support. BOOM! Direct hit to center mass of the bottle. A beautiful shot. Ocean Spray everywhere. Unfortunately, I was a little too close to the scope and didn't have my cheek planted on the stock as tight as it should have been, so now I have this nice cut above my eye. Oh well, as least I'll look like a bad-ass UFC fighter when I'm dropping Bambi!! :lol:

It's easy and embarrassing to explain to people, but the Ocean Spray bottle doesn't have a chance to tell it's story!

glad you're mostly otherwise "ok". they do make extended or long eye relief scopes as an option. i ended up mounting a red dot on my rifle ( guide gun ) and was pretty happy with it. i pretty much figured i wouldn't be shooting it much past 100 yards, anyway. - DS_Ohio
