So I hit the gun shop and managed to find the correct dovetail rings and got the Bushnell 5-10x mounted on the Marlin.... It looks absolutely rediculous. :ROFLMAO:

Surprisingly on the lowest magnification it's pretty nice and it has a high eye relief so it's quite comfortable. Looks insane, but at 100 yards it's not bad.

I put the other scope off my creedmoor on the B mag .17wsm and that thing is absolutely perfect for that gun. I thought it was small and under magnified for the creedmoor but it's dead on for the .17. size, magnification etc all work well.

Now I'm waiting for my monster Leupold 24x by 52mm to put on the creedmoor....

I'm contemplating getting a scope for the .410 and the .357 mag I inherited now... I have no idea why, I just like scopes. I think a reflex site for the .357 and a cheap 2-4x for the shotgun.
I vote lvpo for .357 mag. Something like 1-4 or 1-6

My credo
If you don't have time to do it right will you have time to do it over?
Glasses are weird. I had to get some recently, never had them before in my 35 years on this planet. I'm nearsighted and have astigmatism. I put them on when I left the Dr. and suddenly could read signs and stuff, epic! Then got in my truck and it felt like I was sitting in a go-kart low to the ground, and the dash was shaped weird and sloped toward the passenger side. When I got home I nearly fell down the stairs because they weren't where my brain sent my foot given the info from my eyes.

So I did some reading and apparently my brain had to readjust what the shape and position of things were with the new glasses correcting the astigmatism. When I used to look at a window, which I knew as rectangular, my brain processed it as a rectangular window. With the astigmatism correction, the window is now trapezoidal, but my brain expects a rectangular window. It took a solid month for things to straighten out. I guess it's not glasses that are weird, but brains certainly are weird.
I didn't wear glasses until I was 45 and my arms got too short to hold the newspaper far enough away to read it. I knew if I got reading glasses they'd be on my desk and I'd be up in the office or out in the body shop so I went from no glasses to no line bifocals. They took some getting used to alright, until my brain got used to them I felt sea sick. If I held up a sheet of paper and turned left and right while keeping my eyes on it, the page would turn into a parallelogram and wag back and forth, forget about walking down stairs- I couldn't tell where my feet were. After 20+ years they don't bother at all but if I drive without glasses my gauges look really round.

I have reading glasses strategically placed all over the place. Dollar store or pharmacy reading glasses prices make that possible.
