Re: Need for \"tactical\" scopes
Blaser, did some one say Blaser? the questions asked about scopes should also have been asked about rifles before you ordered. I refuse to sell Blaser, if some one wants a Blaser, i send em some where else. The Blaser R93 is just the opposite of tactical milspec reliable. its a pile of junk rifle backed up by oneof the best advertising campagnes in firearms history. If Blaser had spent half of what they did on advertising on development of the rifle, they might have something. The R93's are all accurate. But are not dependable.
Tactical scopes and kit.. i use only S&B PMII. i like mil spec kit as you can usualy rely on it (but that isn't a given as the military also buy crap from time to time)
A lot of it is the Guchi factor i must admit. I was long since bitten by themil spec tactical bug. i go hunting dressed and carrying kit other folks would go of to war with, matt mil spec finnishes on rifles turn me on, as does a cammo stock. but then i have DPM cammo curtains and bed sheets. Heck i even had a girlfriend once who i got to wear my repirator and my load bearing equipment(webbing for us brits) during sex..
what i'm trying to say is that one can overdo it in the tactical direction and some times i do. The thing to know is what and when to buy mil spec tactical and when not. Forums like this are great for passing on ideas and asking such questions. Hope i haven't peed on anyones bon fire with my loathing of the Blaser R93.
