A suggestion for the future...
Buy a better scope - the Simmons scope line is considered to be somewhat minimal.
Since you are still a student, with a baby girl who doesn't sleep through the night, yet, I'm sure you don't have the funds to do any upgrades for now.
When the time comes, I would suggest a Leupold VX 2, for about $300.
Or, for about $200, a used Leupold Vari-XII.
Note that the "Vari-X I, II, and III" series is the oldest Leupold Series, the "VX-I, II, and III" series is newer, and "VX 1, 2, and 3" series is the newest, best, and most expensive.
Even the oldest Leupold scope is better than a new Simmons. I know - I traded up from a Simmons ($125, new) to a Leupold Vari-X III ($225, used), for my .243 Win Model 70, and the difference is really noticeable.
Just some food for thought, for the future.
Artillery lends dignity to what would otherwise be but a vulgar brawl.
