I yield -- everyone to their own reasoning

All persons present in uniform should render the military salute. Members of the armed forces and veterans who are present but not in uniform may render the military salute. All other persons present should face the flag and stand at attention with their right hand over the heart, or if applicable, remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart.

Jpatterson, I think he means he's an inch high between muzzle and 75 and 3 inches low to 100

Take a zero of 75 yards, a sight height of 1.5", and a MV of 1250fps.

The bullet will reach the top of its arc between 40 and 50 yards, 1.2" above the point of aim. At 75 yards, the bullet will have dropped back down to the point of aim (the "zero"). At 100 yards, the bullet will have dropped another 3.2" below point of aim.

The 25yd zero seems very practical also for a plinking or closer-range squirrel-getting, as the bullet stays within a half inch of POA out to about 65-70 yards. I don't mind having a little more mid-range "arg" to my shots, so I tend to zero a little further.
