    I am having some difficulty sighting in my Vortex Stikefire II red dot on my 5.56 (62 grain ammo). I went to MF (30 yards) and quickly realized I could not see the holes in the paper.

    can anyone help to identify what kind of bug this is? My wicker furniture on my stoop is full of these things. They crawl in and out of the twisted wicker. I thought they were ticks, but they have 6 legs, instead of the 8 that I see ticks have. I am afraid to let my dog lay on the cushions now.
