I’ve been picking up my rifles by their scopes for as long as I can remember, never had any issues with them like changing POI or anything like that. As long as you don’t go bumping the thing around, there is zero chance of damage or POI change. Absolute zero! Just use your common sense, and don’t swing it around like your handling a baseball bat or something. From a safety perspective, that’s not a sensible thing to do anyhow.  ;)
