Gallery

Gallery Rifle Shooting (or Gallery & Pistol Shooting) is a discipline of shooting that is widely popular throughout the Globe. This form of shooting uses rifles shot at short and medium distances (10-50m) chambered for traditional pistol calibres such as .22 Long Rifle, .38, .357, .44, and .45. There are a wide array of Scopes applicable to Gallery Shooting so here are a few things to consider.

Magnification

Because Gallery Shooting is unsupported most shooters use lower magnification Scopes (under 10x) but as the shooter gets used to shooting unsupported and controlling their wobble they might want to increase the magnification to get a bigger picture of the target.

Parallax

An adjustable parallax is preferred as it will allow you to focus the image in order to see the target more clearly.

Weight

When it comes to weight there are two trains of thought. The first is whether having a lightweight Scope is better as you are shooting unsupported and this will help stop fatigue and aid you in being able to stay on target for longer. The second is whether weight is a good thing as it helps to steady yourself to shoot tighter groups. As with all things, this will come down to personal preference and what best suits your set-up.

Reticle

With reticles it comes down to how busy you want it to be. A simple crosshair will do for most gallery work but a lot of shooters use everything from Mil-Dot to full Christmas Tree target reticles. It's all down to what naturally guides your eye to the target so the best advice is to take a look around and find what is best for you.

Turret/Adjustment

This doesn't really make much difference to Gallery Shooting as once you have zeroed you don’t have to dial for your next target. Just pick whatever suits you best.
