A True Gun Nut

You know your a gun nut when your realtor tells you that you need to remove some “clutter” from your fridge, in order not to scare potential buyers.

Last night I had one of those gun nut moments as I moved an empty PSL magazine and a Soviet PSO-1 scope from my table to make room for the laptop.   BTW, if anyone knows how to make fine adjustments on that scope for zeroing, I’d be most appreciative.  The manual for it is in Cyrillic.

  1. I hung targets in my cube at work. At an gun-neutral to anti-gun company. I figured I could always claim “religious persecution” if asked to take it down by saying I worshiped at “The Church of All-Saints: St. Browning, St. Stoner and St. Kalishnikov”.

    As to the scope, if I had one still, I could tell you. If it has screws set into the adjustment caps, once you have the scope zeroed, you have to unscrew those and adjust the turrets to their zero positions. It’s a pain. Similar for the turret zeroing on a Mosin sniper scope.

  2. Haha, this happened to me once. My roommate and I were/are both gun owners and we were selling a condo we’d bought together. I said, “Dude, clean your crap up, we’ve got people coming to see the place today.”

    When I got home from work, there was a disassembled AK-47 on the kitchen table. Needless to say, we didn’t get an offer from that buyer.

  3. The way to adjust a PSO series scope is relatively easy. As you go for your zero, adjust accordingly. Top turret moves your point of impact up or down depending on which way you turn it. The turret on the right side of the scope adjusts for windage. Once you’ve got your sope zeroed (or if you run out of turret on either side) loosen the two small aluminum screws. Lift up gently on the black cam and rotate the lower, silver colored dial back to where it says “0” or “1” depending on how you want your scope set up. Once it’s set, retighten the screws. Be careul, as these screws are easy to lose.

    One point, though is that the PSO does not have a self centering reticle. So it could be conceivable that your aiming chevrons could be all the way to one side or the other and either all the way to the top or bottom. Had this happen with my 2005 TGI PSL. Reticle was all the way to the right in the scope and almost all the way to the top.

    If you’ve got any more questions about your PSO series scope, let me know and I’ll see what I can do to answer them. BTW, Good luck in VA!

  4. Thanks! I was thinking those screws probably had something to do with it, but I didn’t want to mess with them and turn out to be wrong :)

  5. There’s a better tutorial on how to site in your PSO series scope available. I’m not real comfortable with posting a link to them, so if you’d like, send me an email and I’ll drop you the link.
