    started fiddling around with my 10/22 and scope. i can see the crosshairs when i aim at a blank wall, but as soon as i move to something else, i lose the cross hairs

    i can't refocus unless i take my eye off the sight, point at a blank wall, and try again

    any tips on keeping focus on the cross hairs, or at least returning focus to the cross hairs once i lose focus?

    It's probably because you're so close to your target. When you take it out and shoot it, it shouldn't be a problem. Both will look clear.

    thanks
    i guess i'll have to wait until i get to the range, since i don't really want to go out to the parking lot of my apartment complex, and start pointing a rifle every which way...

    OPen the windows and aim at houses across the street and see how that works.

    Even better if you use a red dot.

    Think about like 'switching gears'.

    When I go from the target to the reticle, I imagine like my eye is switching gears back and forth.

    Sometimes I move my eye slightly to the left or right, or just make a conscious effort to look 'shallower', so like, at the scope, not through it.

    That sounds weird but it helps.

    make sure you keep both eyes open too. can't believe that hasn't been mentioned

    one step at a time

    changing your plane of focus with both eyes open is way harder

    oh is this a non red-dot sight?

    either way, should learn how to keep both eyes open. that's like firing a handgun with one eye closed :nono:
