Sighting it in

After all your good advice on sighting in my scope on my 1022 I got here last week. I went to the range yesterday and it work out great got it dead on in about 15 minutes.
Then I go home and set my Ruger 10/22 down on the bench and I see the rear scope ring has come off the rail. Sure enough 1 ring fell completely off and the other one was very loose. Must not have tighten them. Now I guess I have to start all over again. It sucks having some timers or CRS.
Didn't tighten the rings down now I feel even dumber.

The upside is you have a good excuse to go to the range. Hope it dials in quick for you this time.

Has happened to me and more than I care to admit. I also have a tendency to switch scopes between guns a lot, not to mention going back and forth between iron sights and scopes. Shooters like me learn to sight in scopes and guns pretty darn quick as a result. Just all part of the fun, to my way of thinking.

The second time I took my little Henry to the range with a scope on it I sighted it in. when I got home the rear ring had slid off the rail it was so loose. I went back the next day and tightened everything down and it was still zeroed in. I got lucky.

That's great I hope I'm that lucky. I changed the sight on my Henry golden boy last night to a buuseye peep sight like the one on my Big Boy so I'll be sighting both of them in this morning
