My hunting buddy bought some Butler Creek flip up scope covers to keep his lenses dust / rain / scratch free.
It seems like a great idea to me, but I was thinking... When you're in the field, stalking through the thick stuff, and you jump a buck, every second counts... I usually have my rifle "unslung" with my thumb near the safety when I'm in likely territory.
Has anyone had problems with flip up scope covers while taking a "rapid" shot?
