    Yesterday, I was out using my .22 on the 25 yd and I was aiming as normal-focused on my target and trying to line the crosshairs where I wanted. I was getting my usual hits and misses. Well, then at one point I accudentally focused on the crosshairs right before taking the shot and I was dead on! So I tried two more times-two more dead on! So my last target, I just switched my focal point back and forth playing around.

    Have you guys noticed any difference in accuracy by focusing on crosshairs?

    You are supposed to focus on the cross hairs to hit properly. It is like focusing on the front sight while using iron sights.

    My .22 is my first and only gun I've shot with a scope. Thanks for the tip!

    Now, red dots are supposed to be looked past-correct?

    You're supposed to open both eyes with red dots. They take a bit to get used to in order to be used properly, which is why I usually don't recommend starting a beginning shooter out on red dots.

    Yea, I do both eyes open and look at what I'm shooting. I really like it.

    The largest issue with red dots is when shooters don't know how to properly use them. However, if you're confident in your ability to properly use them, then they can be an excellent tool for close quarters.
