What are you folks using to holster your rifle on a 4 wheeler. ? I used to use a handle bar gun rack until i decided the vibration threw the scope off. I am leaning towards a koplin 6.0 . any thoughts? my shoulder is getting tired!!

I think your right about the rack. One trip I had my 10/22 in one of those and after we rode around all day and when we got back to camp I looked through my scope and all I saw was black! I think the vibration broke somethin in there. It was just a cheapy tasco scope and it may not happen with a better quality scope but I could see it throwing the scope off. As for your question I now use a gun boot and it has worked well. I have mostly used it for my shotgun but the few times I have used it with a rifle it hasnt seemed to damage anything. The only complaint I have is that it makes it hard to get on the quad on the side with the boot.JW

I tallked with a Leupold tech a few years back , and he said that scopes are NOT designed for sideways vibration, such as on the handlebars of your scooter. Thanks for your input..

Wen I hunt in Utah with my buddy we use handle bar racks but keep the rifles in the soft cases to keep them from bouncing around and keep the dust off of them, we haven't had problems with scopes yet.

I am scared to try mine. Although, if it is the vibration that is the problem, i was thinking of using a bungee cord to add downward pressure so they wouldn't vibrate too much
