Steve at the Firearms Blog writes about lower power or no power scope. I wouldn’t shoot silhouette with anything else. Why? Because I find magnification makes me more unstable. MagnificationÂ amplifiesÂ movement, and for me that just makes me move all over the place. Normally I shoot with a red dot when I shoot any sight class. Most of the time I actually prefer open sights. I don’t shoot any better with a scoped gun than I do with open sight anyway.
