Scopes are used to increase your accuracy when firing at long distances by magnifying the image of your target and providing you with a reticle that indicates exactly where your weapon is aimed. Using a rifle scope requires the same basic practices of shooting with traditional or “iron sights”, but replaces the rear sight aperture and front sight tip with a single magnifying component that may resemble a small telescope. These scopes come in a variety of models and can provide anywhere from 1 to 50 times magnification of your target. Remember that a stronger magnification does not make you a more accurate shooter, so it’s important to practice strong fundamentals while firing with a rifle scope.
