screech, yes the 6-18's do "click". TO be honest, I've had 1 problem with mine over about 5 years. I clicked up to a 600yard shot then back down to 100 yards. Well my scope was still set around 600 cuz I shot wayyyyy high on the coyote. However, thats 1 time out of hundreds, maybe a thousand times of clicking up and down. You sound like you've had 1 two many problems with leupolds before, haha. ANyways, I think there decent scopes for magnification and there intended purpose for under $500. I've used mine out to 1K with no special bases or anything, so theres enough MOA to 1K with relatively flat shooting calibers. I thought the only scopes that didn't click were the new vx1, and the old vx2 didn't click. However, anything with turrents on leupold, they do "click".
