Sighting in a Gun / Firearm
Sighting in your gun should be done before every hunting season. It shouldn't take long or cost you five boxes of shells if you follow the guidelines below.
Sighting in Fixed Sight Guns
1. Make sure your gun is in good condition and that you have the appropriate ammunition for the firearm.
2. Place your target at the range you want to site in at, make sure you have an adequate backstop, to prevent stray bullets from causing damage.
3. Shoot a group of at least three shots from as steady of a rest as you can. From this group move your rear site in the direction you want the group to move, move the sight up to move your group up, move the sight left to move the group left. If you can't move the rear sight left or right, you will need to move the front sight (Winchester 94 has a fixed rear site for windage). When moving a front site, if you move the sight left your bullet moves right, and vise versa.
4. Shoot another group and continue changing your sights until you are satisfied with your group placement.
Sighting a Scoped Gun
1.Follow steps 1-4 above, but adjust your point of aim by moving the scope turrets in the direction marked on them. Remember that each "click" is usually 1/4 inch at 100 yards, you will need to move the dial more is you are shooting at a closer distance.
