when i use my red dot sight, i tend to not bother adjusting and shoot a few times before the game, and see where it hits, and adjust my personal aiming down the sight for the day, do any of you guys do this?

and while i'm at it, anyone know a good place that will deliver cheaply to the uk, for sight risers, think of a stock tippmann 98 custom with ACT, i have a sight that fits the top of that, and a stock that blocks my looking down the sight, this is fine, plenty of time to get a riser before my next game, but i cannot find a good place to buy one

I always get to games early so I can make sure all my gear is working correctly. This includes making sure my red dot is sighted in, all the initials are lubricated, paintball pods are filled, etc.

I get iritated when other guys show up 5 min. late and expect the rest of us to wait for them to proceed and fix whatever they where to lazy to fix when it broke in their last game.

i some times make sure my sight is zeroed before a game. But like SHARPSHOOTER said i like to get there early and make sure everything is working fine. I usually do all the sighting in the day before the game.

Once my Red Dot is adjusted properly, I really don't have to change it unless its windy at which point I will take the time to adjust my red dot to compensate for windage.

Whats the point of having a sight if its not adjusted? that being said once its on the gun only periodic adjustment is neccessary unless its removed or jarred.

yea really it ought not move unless its shot or jarred heavily(drop your marker or whatnots)
my red dont (adco hotshot) has 2 screws to adjust left right and up down
and the piece you adjust is inside an outside mounting case sort of
its hard to knock it out and a little harder to zero again
i do it day before everygame at about 50 yards

and really if its a red dot at 30-50 yards unless yousight is really loose dont worry about it falling out of calibration.
no worries man just pull the trigger

I have a $7 daisy red dot, and I keep it aligned. I have gotten more than a few mask hits when I have it zero'd.

After i crono i always adjust it to about 60ft, i do this because after oiling my gun and recronoing the velocity would have changed so i re adjust it to compensate for the drop so my shots are dead on every game

Mine is pretty pin point at about 30 yards. Dont really need it for much farther than that, because it'd be too hard to thread it through all of the brush/branches from much farther. But like everyone else, I take the time before the games to make sure she's sighted in.

When I chrono I make sure my site is on. If it is no problem, if it isn't I adjust right there.

I always take a minute to adjust before a game. Usually the night before a game (you know when you are all excited and anticipatey and just have to pull out your gear and mess with it a bit.) I eyeball it by pointing my gun at things around my house at different distances. Usually I can get it close enough that the next day I need a minute or two to get it "fine tuned" before the game.

I also look at which direction the wind is blowing and adjust my shots while shooting with the wind so I only have to make mental adjustments during the game since I never know which direction I will be facing when making a shot.
