Airsoft Optics Protectors

If you run optics on your airsoft gun, you probably have at least thought about the "what happens if my optic gets shot out" question.  Ok, so you can probably shoot without an optic - it's not like your targets are out at 200 yards.  BUT if you've invested any kind of cash in your optic, you don't want it to break.  Check out these two vids on optic protection and then read my summary.

So a few quick thoughts.
POSITIVE: protects your optic, low-cost for good BB protection, looks kinda cool.
NEGATIVE: do you REALLY need it (how likely is it to get your optic shot out?), and they look kind of goofy.

I know you are all wondering - Tim, do YOU run one of these on your gun? I don't run an optic on my SAW, so I'm not the right person to ask.

Anyhow, food for thought, and keep on firin'!
