If you find it hard to hold the scope up high enough, or to hold that tension on the device that will keep you from inadvertently bending it in a way that effects maneuverability. Then this tip is for you.

Walking the Scope

Having trouble driving the scope to the target? One problem is that you may be inadvertently pushing that tube too far down as you insert the scope. This bundle of troubleshooting tips is for you.
