    Great demo, would it have been better with some kind of stabilising support for the rifle?

    I use SWFA 10×42 fixed mag scopes on everything I do, just works from hunting to target to long range shooting.. Also a big fan of fixed Schimidt Bender 8×56 Klassik for hunting in low light.

    Just buy a first focal plane, then you can use whatever magnification you want without worrying about lines being too thick or w/e

    Simple but effective demonstration 👍

    hi what was the lower mag scope please.make that is

    Is "parallax" on this video referring to parallax or focus? Parallax as I know it is the crosshairs moving depending on your angle relative to the glass.

    Might help to use some form of rest for the rifle to reduce movement.

    I’m about to buy my first air rifle (HW30s) . What mag would you recommend for target practice at 25 meters?

    How many magnifications does ir shoot at ?????

  12. Philip Booth on November 23, 2022 at 9:57 pm

    I still use fixed 4x for all my hunting needs, from 8 yard rats out to 300 yards + on full bore – less to fiddle with – clear bright image – large fov and a lot less weight to unbalance the rifle with.

    nice…can i have one

  14. Neil Edwards on November 23, 2022 at 10:07 pm

    Excellent demonstration at near to far targets and the importance of adjusting parallax for clarity of target .
    Question : would you suggest that the 10x is an around setting for hunting and target work thank you , great video.

  15. Daniel LaRusso on November 23, 2022 at 10:08 pm

    When the scope is bigger and cost twice as much as the rifle…

  16. Bror Jordas on November 23, 2022 at 10:13 pm

    Absolutely an amazing video of the subject.
    Thank You!

  17. Jeremy Metcalf on November 23, 2022 at 10:25 pm

    All of it.

    Hi John, I have a daystate wolverine. 22 , and a vector optics tourex 6 ×24 ×50 , I know I need ajustable mounts but would I need extra high mounts to reach 55 yards, thanks in advance, any recommendations

  19. Skitch on November 23, 2022 at 10:32 pm

    Sorry might be a stupid question but how do you find your target distance with night vision? Thinking of buying this one but cant see the point if i dont know what distance my target is

  20. Stephen Luke on November 23, 2022 at 10:33 pm

    I use only two settings. The lowest setting to find the target, then zoom into the max setting, adjust the parallax and then shoot.
