    I'd change "night time shooting" to "low light shooting" in the IR section and add SF to the AO section.

    Ok how about.

    Tube size.
    The Tube size is the diameter of the main tube of the scope where the scope mounts are attached. The most common of these are 1" (25mm) and 30mm. Its a common misconception that a bigger tube size will give you a clearer and brighter image, however in most scopes other than the top end, top of the range scopes, the only thing a larger tube size offers is a wider range of crosshair adjustment and zoom ratio.

    The important thing about tube size is to make sure you know what it is so that you buy suitable scope mounts.

    Mounts.
    This is a whole section on its own......

    Cheers

    A laser can be used to judge the distance to within 2 yds to 60 yds or so and is the real use for them rather than as a point blank aimpoint

    It's all over this forum several times and is at least as long as your original post though it was written several years ago. Search laser under my name and it'll pop up. Feel free to copy and paste.
