Oil pressure gauge goes up and down?

Fellas, my 98 wrangler Sahara has been the love of my life for the past few months. And I want it running perfect. Just changed the oil but I notice that the gauge for the oil pressure drops when the car is idling. It's normal while I drive. Any problems with this?

Oil pressure will go up and down with RPMs so a drop in pressure at idle would be normal, unless it's dropping to zero

Makes sense. It goes down to about to the fourth tick mark.
