Still learning but here's what I've gleaned thus far.

Response to Man, I bet it was fun. I guess all kept the scope power low near that 12 area if

It closely resembles hunting in this way. When I hunt wild squirrels, unless I happen to be where they feed, then I'm catching them traveling to and from feeding. Range is determined on the fly and shots are quick. Lower power optics are good for this since the FOV is larger. While the shots aren't as quickly taken, they are done in the same manner. Range the target via your MK I eyeball and take the shot. The other way it more resembles hunting is the use of pegs, trees and other terrain features for propping the gun on. Most every hunter that stalks game does this. Once the quarry is spotted, I stalk to the nearest tree, hold the rifle against the trunk and take the shot. I think that is what I like about it the most.

I used 12x with a 25 yard parallax setting. Very blurry at 8 yards but I could tell the difference in clarity between 8, 9, 10, etc. My scope cleared up nicely at 15 yards which was near my near line of sight and pellet path crossing. It remained clear out to 35 yards and began to blur again, which is near where the LOS and pellet crossed paths again.

It seems to me it's all about learning range estimation via these limitations. Bracketing will be of some use. It's very fun. I'm ready to shoot again!!

So, I'm airgun po.......e
