Excuse me Mykeal, I posted wrong. It should have read a more modern rifle instead of an in-line. The first rifle I scoped WAS a Thompson New Englander.

I tried everything from saran wrapping nipples to putting rubbers over the barrel, and had pretty good luck keeping moisture out of the Thompson, but after 4 or 5 years of rainy deer seasons, I finally just got tired of playing with it
and switched over to an inline. I liked my Thompson, but I'm more into the hunt than I am into what I'm using, and the inline is just a lot less hassle for me.

I don't need to make excuses for owning one, anymore than any one else would have to explain to me why they hunt the way they do. I have never looked down or ridiculed anyone for their preference in hunting, unless they prefer to do it out of season.
