    I shoot pistols at 50 yards one handed. They shoot Bulls Eye pistol matches every month at MCFG. ( I do not know about this year because of the corna virus.)

    We shoot .22 and .45's, there is another match for centerfire, most just use the .45 again. All of them are at 25 and 50 yards.

    I use a Matchdot Ultra dot on my .45 and a Simmons red dot that looks a lot like the Matchdot. The Matchdot is impressive but expensive.

    I ran cheap reflex sight on the .22 for a while, super accurate but it didn't last long, about 1000 rds and it quit working. I have heard many times you should spend as much on your optics as you do your rifle, accurate pistols are the same way in my opinion.

    USMC ,excellent shooting on that 25 yard target! One hand accuracy shooting is a skill that few achieve outside of Bullseye. I used to shoot an indoor league in Muncie some years ago. Recently a friend of mine convinced me to participate in his online bullseye matches. It made me realize how badly my one hand shooting has deteriorated.

    Thanks, The gun was built and re-built by AllenM, I think that it was his first Bullseye Gun, best money I ever spent on accuracy. The rebuilt was because I blew it up once.
    Even with 2 hands 50 yards is a real challenge. Trust me when we move back to 50 my groups get a lot bigger. Good thing the 50 is slow fire. 25 is all rapid and timed fire

    Fortunately, the rings that came with this fit on the older Weaver rail that the 22A-1 had.


    I spent 3:15 at MCF&G shooting today.
    I tried to get this dialed in, but was at 25 yds. & it was all over the place & didn't seem to respond well to my adjustments.
    I went over to where it was a shorter distance, but I had to stand & lean against a tree b/c you are not allowed to sit down in the pistol bay???
    I got it close, but I'll have to use the indoor range to "fine-tune" it.
    After 200 rounds, I just got tired of messing with it, & moved on to shooting steel.

    It looks like it has an adjustable front objective lens. Did you have it adjusted to the distance you were shooting for the correct parallax? If not, anytime your eye was not perfectly aligned with the scope the shot would be off.

    It is a fixed 4x30.
    It was difficult to move my eye around to see through the scope: sometimes it would just be blacked out like there was no light.

    I didn't think a fixed sight had a parallax that could be adjusted.
    I assume on my rifles, I need to learn how to set the parallax if I'm going to be shooting 100 yds.
    Today on both rifles, I was getting a double upper horizontal line looking through the scope & had to move my eye around to get it to go away.

    I know so little about scopes.

    In the photo the front (objective end) of the scope looks like it turns and may have yardage markings on it. if it does not turn it is a fixed focus/parallax scope. If it does turn, it is used to adjust the focus/parallax to the distance you are shooting.

    As you are learning, to keep the scope from "blacking out", your eye has to be within a narrow range of distance from the eyepiece and centered with the scope. In general the higher the magnification, the smaller this "eye box" is.

    I thought so too.

    I have several fixed power Burris handgun scopes with parallax adjustable objective.

    I thought it was just a fine-focus, like on binoculars.
    I'll have to start googling for manuals on the scopes I've got.

    I probably don't even have the scope in the right placement on the gun rail (usually about 1-2 inches of variance).
    I had read the "eye box" on the variable scopes, but thought that it was supposed to be easier to deal with on a fixed scope.

    Sounds like I have quite a learning curve ahead of me.

    I would think most handgun scopes set for 50 yards parallax.
    Ran a TC 2.5-7X on a .22 mag Contender no prob.
    My Leupold 2X on a Ruger 22/45 Great Eight was no big deal. Actually it shot good enough it shoulda had a 4x.
    Offhand, 2X............if taking any rest 4X.
    Some variable scopes way more picky than others.
    Got no love of Burris handgun variables.

    If not going for tiny groups, a 30mm reddot w a 2moa is pretty decent.
    No eyebox to worry about. No mag to "add" wobble.
