I guess it’s the point about how too much scope can be as bad as too little sometimes. 

On a few examples, buying one of the higher end rifle scopes for an air gun is like spending more to get a nice Mercedes instead of a Chrysler but… for others, it can feel more like you bought a spaceship to take your groceries home from a Trader Joe’s. I.e. They are excellent long range precision scopes but heavy and not always that great for the short range plinking many people want to be able to do in their backyard.

There is still a lot of the top scope manufacturers that think there is no need for any more than a 3-9×33 or 3-9×40 SFP scope for short range guns like air rifles or rimfire. They tend to be the ones that think there is no need for their bigger scopes to focus closer than 50 or 75 yards…
