Scope issue: new zero and wind/elev knobs reversed??

i have a couple questions regarding my tasco mag39x32sd model.

1. after ive sighted my scope in, how do i reset my wind/elevation screw back to MY zero? i see no hex key bolts around the wind/elevation mounting.

2. as per the manual and dial, to adjust left, one needs to click clockwise. when i click clockwise, my reticle shifts right. the direction is reversed for the elevation as well. the "L" and arrow do point in the correct direction as per the manual, but to reiterate, when i click towards what is shown as left with the arrow pointing to that direction, it moves the reticle to the right.

my scope is mounted properly from what i can understand, as the windage knob is facing the right and the elevation knob is on top of the scope and rifle.

Everything is alright with your scope. Try to envision what you've just said for a moment. Reticle moves to the right.....your muzzle will move to the left to compensate. Take five minutes if you need to and get back to me on it. There might be some set screws on the turrets? If not, then get a set of Stoney Point knobs.
i think im beginning to understand. im off to the range today and i'll get this engraved in my head. thanks!

btw, i belive i have set screws, they are dials that can be adjusted with a dime or coin.
wow look at all these replies. thanks to everyone!!

ar hammer: ill try what you suggested about the knobs.

h2oking: starting to make complete sense now, once i put some on paper ill understand this 100%.
c3shooter: thanks

dillinger: thanks for the links. the leupold one you rpovded brings me to a search field. would you have the link to that article still?
well it turns out i do have a slit, but it is extremely small and from what i've tried so far, the slit or the base is not moveable at all, only the coin dial.

the manual staes that the target and airgun scopes have an allen key slot to remove the bases. apparently mine, the .22 riflescope, dosent apply here. ill wait to see if anyone can add anything here, if not im going to return this scope.

i shoot with a .22lr but nevertheless, and i relaize its range isnt capable of the farthest but nevertheless, using a scope that dosent allow you to rezero the dials is like asking to shoot with no wind at the same distance every single trip to the range.
yep, i understand the clickage now.

i checked out a bushnell .22 riflescope today, the dials were the same. I dont think these scopes support rezeroing.
ok i understand what you mean now. thanks
