    No it a long pipe over a short scope! I had a bushnell.22 scope chief, I bought when I was about your age, long time ago. I milled it to fit after boring out and milling the tube to fit, a little bit of tunnel vision but better than open sights.

    Thought about that, have managed to get a good long eye relief on the scope and probably put a rubber cup on it. Best way is to let someone else try it first

    So what you are saying Maca is that you need a test Gibo?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Lack of gun license and income is a wee bit of a hindrance haha.

    Been scoped once shooting uphill, never again and certainly not with that contraption! Would poke me eye out!
