    What the Hell Does MOA Mean???
    My buddy and I are trying to buy a scope for his Mini-14 and Rugar 10/22 and we keep coming across this term "MOA." What does this mean? Is it better to have more MOA or Less? Does anyone have any tips or links we can use to get a better idea of what to buy? Any info is greatly appreciated.

    MOA = Minute of Angle. Translates to about 1" at 100 yards. Here is an article explaining it.

    Judging from the number of times you've posted the same question, I'd say, "Moron On Assignment".

    WalterGA,

    Look at the dates that I posted. They were all posted at the same time. I understand what it means now. I put the same thread in different forums to make sure I got a response the night I posted. Why do you gotta name call? Ignorance is Bliss!!!

    What I really don't understand is why WalterGA didn't respond to this part!

    (General opinion being that you would have better luck moving the barn closer to the mini-14).
