As a special Christmas gift I found one of my dogs had a new *toy* that she was shredding...come to find out it was a Nikon Range Finder case, but no Range Finder. I went outside and found a frozen Range Finder half buried in the snow. I brought it indoors, removed all the snow, pulled the battery, and let it warm to room temperature. It seems to be working fine now. Anything I should be watching for? I will test the *true* distances when it warms up a bit. It seems the dogs found the *case* much more fun to destroy than the actual tool, (I think I got off lucky).
