    I'd like to just emphasise the importance of the a/o section in titchgamers thread.
    There's been quite a few posts on the forum lately regarding trouble with parallax error or blurred images when shooting at close range.
    Remember when buying a scope for your airgun, Buy one suitable for an airgun and not a rifle scope.
    Most rifle scopes have they're parallax set at either 50 or 100yds. No-where near the airgun ranges of 8-55yds. If you buy one of those scopes you will encounter problems trying to set it up for airgun use.
    While it is possible to re-parallax most scopes the end result is never perfect and for the few extra 's it's worthwhile paying for a scope with an adjustable objective or sidewheel with a range from 10yds to infinity.
    At the end of the day why pay a fortune for an accurate airgun only to put an unsuitable scope on it. If you cant see what your aiming at your unlikely to hit it. atb. Brian.
    Trying is the 1st step towards failure

    Personally I found it hard to get along with a laser unless you are a VERY good at judgeing distance as they travel in a straight line and your pellet dosent.
    Granted some of the more expensive lasers are not as bad but I found the cheaper ones to be useless for more than checking zeros and point blank shooting.
    I agree with that regarding lasers you need to be spot on with judging your distances. The better lasers are ones with turrets that you can easily zero instead of the cheaper ones like Hawkes/SMK etc I'm not really into lasers.
