I leaned my Tikka 22 in a corner by the back door. Danged cat went over, before I could stop him, and rubbed on it. Down to the floor it went, landing on the scope (Leupold 4.5-14). Drat! Yelled at the cat. Went out to check the zero, and no change to POI. It might not be a NF, but it held up Ok.

Should have checked zero on the cat.

Yep. I'm sure it would be called a bobcat on the open hunting discussion board, so you'd be in the clear.

With a good scope mount, it should hold zero. Holding the zero on a drop is often about the rings and base holding up, not the scope.

While training dogs in S. Dakota from horseback I had my .22 rifle fall out of the scabbard. Cheap Simmons 2x7, landed on the front bell and turned it from a 0 to a D shape. Still dead on per the many skunks and badgers taken afterwards.

I was hoping for a cat shooting thread to get started. Very disappointed.

A guy I know will shoot a cat from time to time.

I took that rifle to the bench yesterday and did some more shooting to confirm that the zero hadnít changed. Dead on, just like before it got cat rubbed and bounced. And, just to say it one more time, that Tikka 22 is amazingly accurate. Sure glad I got one.

I'm just glad no house cats were hurt in this thread.

I posted a few years ago, rifle fell off of my tail gate and hit the dirt, hard. It was on a bipod and rear bag, I walked away from it and heard it hit. Had just finished zero'ing and it held POI. I didn't buy the mount that was used, it was there when the rifle was given to me. It was this: [Linked Image]
When this occurred I had mounted a new, cheap vortex scope and was putting this together as mainly a loaner and occasional coyote set up (.243). I'm convinced this style of mount may be weaker than others and wouldn't put it on anything else, but for nostalgia it's gonna stay there. On this day it was robust enough to do it's job and this .243 from 1979 is a great shooter.


An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

I am actually disappointed there was a cat in the house that didn't involve taxidermy
