Burris scopes and posilock

Anyone own a Burris scope and wish they had bought the same model with the posilock feature?
Seems to be a $35/40 difference which isn't too much...but I've never had a scope with a wandering POI so I'm wondering why I need this. Also never veered far from Leupold till now.

Experiences?

I have one and it's really only intended for very hard recoiling rifles. If you're going to be shooting a really hard kicking magnum a lot or taking a hunting trip where you won't have a chance to rezero when you arrive then it's something to consider. Otherwise it's unnecessary and a fast way to damage the scope if you forget to loosen it before adjusting the crosshairs.

If you're going for a Signature Select or above you're going to love the sharpness of the image.

Thanks Sholling, so I scored one new, with damaged packaging, for about 1/2 price on an Ebay auction, no posilock...no worries.
