Default Scope Setup Video

I'm sure most of you know this already but I found this video very helpful and thought I'd share.

Do they have a site, I'd really like to contact them regarding some rifle problems I'm sure to face, I'm actually having one now without having a gun, and it's about the scope I have. I bought a Rifle Scope with a 400 yard mil-dot setup in the crosshairs, and it was made by Leapers UTG. However, the elevation and windage dials don't work, otherwise the cross hairs would shift in the lens. Is that normal, cause I have a cheap scope that i used for a BB gun, and the same problem happened with that one too. I'd really like to get in contact with these guys for some help. All the people who posted on my threads gave info that wasn't relevant to the topic, and then they stopped writing all-together eventually. Basically, no one here is helping. Do you have a link to video origin, other than Youtube???

Don't know how much they might be able to help with your specific problem, but here is the website I have for them:

http://www.nssf.org/hunting/

Without having the scope mounted in a fixed position and sighted in on a fixed target, it may be difficult to determine whether the crosshairs are moving or not. If you have already determined that they are immobile, given that admittedly it is not an expensive scope, it probably isn't worth going to the expense of fixing.
