MOA = Minute of Angle. A circle around you is divided into 360 degrees. Each degree is divided into 60 minutes. Of course as you get farther away from the center of the circle both the degrees and minutes get wider like a piece of Pizza (dang pizza sounds pretty good right now). At 100 years away from the center of the circle a minute is 1.047" (MOA). At 200 yards its twice that and at 300 yards 3 times that etc. Most people just round it to 1" and call it good. Canebrake gave a course on this in one of the stickies.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." C.S. Lewis
