Some of the things they recommend doing include:

  • Checking the zero on your red dot sight regularly. This means firing a few rounds at an unmoving target from a rested position to see where the bullets hit about the dot. If they’re not lining up, you’ll need to make adjustments.

First, let’s talk about gun recoil. When a gun is fired, there is a small amount of back-and-forth movement (recoil) that occurs. This movement can throw off your aim, so it’s important to account for it when adjusting your sights. The best way to do this is to practice at a shooting range so that you can get a feel for how much your gun will recoil.

Also, let’s talk about windage and elevation. These are the two main adjustment screws on a red dot sight. Windage adjusts the horizontal position of the dot, while elevation adjusts the vertical position. By making small adjustments to these screws, you can fine-tune your aim and ensure that your shot is on target.
