How Heavy/portable Is It?

I think I'd like a 12" too, but realistically, how heavy and portable is this beast? Could one person easily disassamble it, pack it into a car, reassemble, and then do the reverse when finished?

It's for this reason that I'm considering dropping back to the 10", or looking for another manufacturer's scope entirely. (This is a purchase that I won't be making until August or September.)
