What to know when trying to buy the right rifle scopes

It doesn’t matter what kind of firearm you own these days, most weapons enthusiast will apply some kind of optical sighting device to their gun, whether it is a rifle or handgun. The reason this is happening more and more often is because there is simply more accuracy in aiming through rifle scopes. These amazing devices eliminate time and raises accuracy compared to traditional iron sights. 

Although there are a lot of models and options available on the market right now, knowing which one is the right one for your needs is a serious plus. 

When you are building a small box using finishing nails, you wouldn’t dream of using a sledge hammer to nail them in, right? The fact is, just like in anything if people will buy it, manufacturers will make it and it doesn’t always mean that it is something that is effective or appropriate, it just means it would sell so they made it. When it comes to rifle scopes it is important that you choose the right tools for the job and bigger is not always better. 

For example, a basic deer rifle will use an appropriate scope of approximately 3-9 in size. This works just about right for this job and three is a low enough power. The nine is enough power to give you the right amount to magnify for shots that are longer. It is important to understand that the greater the magnification the more light you are having taken from the target. 

Not only does this occur, but there is not a lot of versatility between short and long distance shots if you are using more low end rifle scopes. Because of this it is important to find out some details regarding the scope that you may have in mind. 

A great example of this is pilots who fly new aircraft onto carriers. The very first question they will ask about a new plane is not how fast it can fly, but how slow. They have to do some fairly fancy flying to land on those carriers and the slower it is capable of flying the better. In this same regard it is important to know the shortest accurate distance a scope is able to be used as well as how far. 

Buying rifle scopes can be confusing and over welling with all the options out there. There are many available and there are amazing brands that are all accurate and effective, but the most important thing to keep in mind is what the scope is for, and how you are planning on using it. The rest is just extra, and optional depending upon your budget and need.

Sungka is a Filipino board game.  For as long as I remember I enjoyed playing it with my cousins when we were still young.  We usually play it when it is raining and we cannot play outdoor.
It is a shallow boat made of solid wood.  At the two ends are large deep bowls carved into the wood.  The whole length is lined with seven smaller bowls in pairs.

Familiar is the click of sigay or cowrie shells ( the counters for sungka) when they fall in play into the bowls.  My late grandfather was the one who taught us how to play it. How brightly my smile was when I scoop a bowl full of counters into my home bowl.  I can still remember that we argue about moves and often it will result to blows, we fight over the counters and there are tears when a whole bowl full of counters is gobbled by the other player, LOL.
For this reason, sungka has two important rules. First, the players must always look down on the board and second, the players have to hold their hands high over the bowls when they drop the counters.  In this way, it can be seen that they are really dropping a counter into each bowl.
When we ate at Lola Maria’s, I was so happy to see a beautiful sungka board, I can’t help reminiscing the good old days.  I thought of buying a beautiful sungka too and teach my children how to play it. I know for sure that they will also like it like I do.
