Who's dumber? Me or DicksSportingGoods?
1st post here. I've owned a stock 10/22 for years and have a lot of fun with it. I'm safe the the rifle, but by overall firearms knowledge is limited.
I went to Dicks this evening and ask for help picking out a scope for my 22. I got home and actually read the plastic blister pack the new bushnell scope came it and saw in big letters SHOTGUN SCOPE. :eek:
What I have is an unopened Bushnell Banner 2-7x36 and Millett .22 caliber scope rings. Should I bring them back and ask to talk with a salesman (excuse me sales person...) who is old enough to buy adult beverages?
Or is there any chance this will actually work with the 10/22?
Oh, and back to my original question who is more dumb? The sales person or me???
The salesperson :D
I don't know if it will work or not, but why not have the correct one? Take it back and get a rimfire scope.
The salescritter should have read the package. Next time, you read the package too. Live & learn, we all make mistakes. ;)
Head over to the New Member Introductions section and introduce yourself to the gang when you get a chance.
Shotgun scopes are generally the same as rifle scopes, the difference being the parallax is usually set @ 50yds on shotgun scopes, the same distance as most rimfire scopes and more appropriate for a .22 than the 150yd parallax setting on most rifle scopes.
Rimfire scopes generally have a shorter eye relief and Ive found it difficult to mount them in a comfortable position on the rifle.
Take it back if you want, but if you like the recticle(crosshair)pattern, the shotgun scope will work just fine.
Oh and I would wager you are still smarter than the salesman.:D
