    Awwwwww, I'm hurt. I only smoke crack socially

    You're not trying to tell me your LR rigs are sportin' Tascos, are you? If you can put up a solid defense for Tasco as a real LR recommendation I'll eat my words (and pass the pipe!)

    I should have never mentioned Tasco's though I still use a Tasco red dot on a 22 target pistol. Thought I'd try one on a 44 and it lasted 3 rounds and the objective end glass fell out....

    Sometimes I wonder if most import scopes are all made in the same place and the name just changes. Like mouthwash, all made in the same facory with appropriate labes affixed to the respective bottles.

    On something I've seen myself..... Oil filters. There is a large factory in Cleveland that makes oil filters. I watched in amazment as the machines cranked out blue (FoMoCo), then orange (Fram), then white (NAPA) in a matter of 5 minutes. All the same, different brands.... amazing. Different pricing but the same thing.

    Sometimes I wonder if scopes are like oil filters or mouthwash????
