Fortunately I am a card-carrying .22 owner with my roots firmly in the North-East.

(My sordid *orkshire past was just a bad phase of which I am ashamed.)

Very glad to hear it Mr Blerk. Please accept an applaud point for displaying proper common sense! ;)


I think I'm beginning to understand "parallax.

The easiest way to demonstrate parallax is like this........

Hold your index finger upright at arms length, then close one eye, and line the finger up with an object in the distance (a tree for example) with the open eye.

Then, when open eye/finger/object are perfectly aligned, move your head from side to side........your finger will no longer line-up with the object. This is the effect of parallax........and also happens when  you don't look perfectly centrally down your telescopic sight. You may have the illusion you've aligned your crosshair onto the target, but because of parallax error, you'll miss hitting the the target spot-on depending on the severity of the phenomenon. Parallax adjustable (PA) scopes alleviate the problem when the distance to the target is accurately set by the objective lens bell or sidewheel. Shooting at a different distance will then require the scope's parallax to be re-set for that/each distance.


Hope that explains it in an understandable way. If not......I have failed the task disastrously, and deserve to be smited for my incompetence. :-\

On a similar note, if it is actually understandable.....please feel free to applaud me....an accolade I'll accept most graciously.


Right....enough talking pompous bollocks...........
