What should it say?
Wed Dec 5, 2012 6:32pm

And no matter what it says (as if anything becomes factual just because someone wrote itů in print or online) , the guns are still all all marked not to shoot the shotgun barrel with a scope attached.

Another way I look at itů who am I to claim you should do it? Because 2, 3, 6 people said it's okay? I've personally seen DOZENS of scopes fly off guns. Shotguns, rifles, pistols. I'm not talking .22 dovetail mounts either, but solid, screwed in mounts. So to totally write off the idea that a .22 dovetail mount could come off in recoil is just silly. Of course it could.

More overů. most people don't bother reading the FAQ. ;)

              Having never seen one or used one, what about a "Red Dot" on a 24 ?
