Re: U.S. Optics riflescope
Every time I fly to another part of the country, I detach the rings and scopes from my rifles and put them in my carry-on bag. I started doing this after opening a rifle case two years ago that went from Texas to New York and found that the case had been dropped so hard, that the padding on the inside had compressed to the point where the rig impacted the outside aluminum shell . . . the scope was badly damaged and the airline never compensated me for it. At any rate, this practice precludes using U.S.O.'s rings, since re-mounting the scope and getting back to original settings is such an operation. With B.O. rings, however, I just slap the scope back on the rifle and pick up right where I left off prior to making the flight. Now, Marty at B.O. said he had a pair for me when I ordered the scope, but when I called back, he already sold them and said he wouldn't have anymore until late this spring at the earliest. This has left me so frustrated that I've decided to sell the scope and go back to using a Nightforce!
