Types of Scopes for your Guns

To keep this post simple I will just describe a couple different types of scopes very broadly, but with enough detail you will know what the basic ideas of these scopes are. You can find links to each of these and in those links I will get a lot more detailed and involved in each different type of scope.

Just to clear some rumors, so everyone knows just because you put a scope on your gun doesn’t mean that your bullet will hit in the exact same place every single time. There are limits to ammunition, shooter, etc. It is impossible to put every single bullet into the exact same hole. There are just to many variables.

Tips For Buying a Weapon Light

There are many things to look at when thinking about purchasing a weapon light. First what will I be doing with the light? Most answers to this will be for law enforcement or other similar situations. For this purpose we have to consider the following, will this light provide the correct amount of light to accurately identify a threat in a low lighted situation. Second will the light be bright enough to overcome the attacker vision and not do any harm to yours.
