HeadLever: reubendaley: Can't you just set your target closer to you for the first shot?

Generally, yes.

With my example, the broken scope would not hold a consistent point with repect to the bore.  First you would be high-left until the next shot.  Then low left, then back high right.  Sometimes you would hit paper then adjust the scope.  Next shot wouldn't even hit paper.

At least it was wild enough for me to quicky ascertain that the scope was faulty.  What really drives you crazy is when the scope does the same thing, but only in 3 MOA increments instead of 20 MOA


:-P  Yikes.  As the saying goes, "It's easier to find a $1,000,000 mistake than a 5¢ one."  Which is reason enough never to skimp on scope rings, and at least don't go to the bargain basement for your scope.

Biner: devastation station: Step 2.5 move all ammunition and magazines to at the very least another table

/that's how I do it

I can understand and admire being extra cautious, but that seems borderline OCD. The mags and ammo are not going to involuntarily jump into the gun while you're cleaning it. But that's just my take...I strongly believe you should follow whatever methods you're comfortable with.


Store all mags and ammo in a locked storage shed 2 towns over while cleaning.
