OK, for the third time
, what do you want me to prove? You keep saying that I refuse to "prove it" but I don't know what you want "proved".
I did not even say anything that requires "proving", so I'm not sure why you keep going back to that. What is there to prove?
The question was basically "Does anyone tap their scope, and if so, why?"
My answer was basically, "Yes, I tap mine because a world class shooter suggested that I do so and that he does it." Nothing more. Nothing at all above and beyond that.
Then you come charging in with the attitude that anyone who can afford nice stuff, and does something different than you, is an A-Hole.
I never said that tapping the scope turrets was necessary.
I never said that anyone else should tap their turrets.
All I said was that I tap mine with a piece of empty brass. Plain and simple.
You are the one who called me out, and have continued to assert that I'm either some kind of liar, or have no idea what I'm talking about.
Both assertions are false.
And for what it is worth, Night Force has a scope that they take to all the trade shows. It is one of theirs that took a 7.62 round through the erector tube in Iraq. A clean hole all the way through the scope. That scope still tracks perfectly and aside from the fact that it is no longer sealed it works perfectly.
So I don't think that tapping a good scope with a one ounce piece of empty brass is going to cause any harm. I don't baby any of my gear, in any way. And I expect it to perform for longer than my lifetime.
