This looks extremely suspicious.

The only scope I would offer would be an old Bushnell with a broke recticle .

Who knows what he is hunting in Pakistan. Show him the door and   .........

Chris: You did know what you were provoking right???

 

I have an old weaver marksman that has been subjected to some rather disturbing experiments and has been sitting in a shed for the past year or two where it has accumulated more than its original weight in dust. I beleive that this would take the cake as the best scope to send him.

 

send him a barska, or a tasco, not a world class (by far too good for this application), but a pronghorn or something of the like.

Send him a GPS equipped cell phone.  Give the # to the NSA so we can find out where he and his friends might be..

Having acertained that information we can arrange a nice care package for the entire group.

Oh darn,................there goes my warped mind again...........I just gotta get a leash for that thing

Send him the 12 oz Scope, if he doesn't like that, send him some Listerine, he probably will need both!

Tell him that you can't send him a scope but you are more than happy to send him some complimentary targets of Mohamed the so-called prophet.  I would donate them, but I have already shot mine up.

Even with a Barska, the shipping would cost more than the scope.....the request looks like a bizarre Hajji version of "Pay it Forward"  Odd, he's got a 7mm, I saw some primo German 8mm's in the hands of Bedouins that were leftovers from when the Nazis were trying to incite revolts against the Brits
