Rifle Scope Varification and Tracking Drill
Due to my recent past issue with the stuck reticle. It brought to mind a Scope Verification Tracking Drill we have used in the sniper schools for years and also was the one that I used to varify that the Reticle problem I experienced was totally resolved. I thought I would share it with those that have not seen or used this procedure before. This is also a test that unfortunately a lot of inexpensive scopes can not pass. But it is very important to the Designated Marksman, Predator, Varmint Hunter, LE Observer Sniper or Competitive Shooter that the scope returns time after time to zero or previous distance settings. I have attached a sample of the target. It is important that the squares on the grid be exactly 1 inch squares. The X can be centered on a line as the sample is or in the center of the open blocks. The sample obviously is not to scale. But hopefully you will get the idea.
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."
