Testing your Scope.

Have you ever put your Scope in a zip lock bag full of water and toss it in the freezer for a week or two?
I have done that on every scope I have owned, it may sound crazy to some, but my brother thought I was a nut job. But they still works just perfect.

    Good answer.........

    I guess after removing it (from the freezer but still in the baggie), one could use it to cool a warm beverage down to consumable temperature......

    That way, if the scope was junk, you'd still have a cold brew......

    I did have a friend that went polar bear hunting and he was worried about his bow. So he put it in freezer for a few days and pulled it out and shot it. Said it made him nervous.
