Telescopic Sight (Scope): Small telescope mounted on your firearm. Scopes magnify the target and eliminate aligning rear and front sights. To aim, you simply look through the scope and line up the crosshairs/reticle with your target. While shooting, it is critical that your focus remains on the crosshairs/reticle and not on the target. Telescopic sights are the most accurate, which makes them popular for hunting.
