Why Should You Get a Rifle Scope?
These days, most firearm enthusiasts use some kind of optical sighting device on most of their guns. Not just rifles, but shotguns and handguns as well. There’s a great reason for this: simplicity. Aiming through a scope or a red dot sight completely eliminates one-third of the complexity of lining up iron sights. With metallic sights, you are required to line up the rear sight with the front sight and your target. With a scope, you simply have to line up your crosshairs (reticle) with your target. It’s much easier to learn to shoot with a scope than iron sights, and since most rifle scopes also magnify, your target appears closer which enables you to place a more precise shot
