I picked up a spotting scope today at Sportsman's Warehouse. I've been needing (i.e. 'wanting') one for awhile. I had a nice one a while back but like most of my things it was stolen by a p.o.s. family member to use to buy drugs. I didn't buy a replacement but shooting at 300+ yards has changed that. I can't see the holes in the reactive targets at that distance. When I was in Sportsman's today (evil, evil store) buying some stuff for trout fishing on Friday I checked out the scopes. There were two for a really affordable price, one an Alpen for $79.00 and a Simmons for $89.00. Alpin is out of business so the lifetime warranty is a moot point. I bought the Simmons Blazer 20-60X/60mm. Came with a tripod and a cover. I had it out tonight checking out the deer here at my place. Works great and I can see a flea at 300 yards, let alone a .308 cal. hole. And it comes with a lifetime warranty.

I would buy something better if I was elk hunting I the high country or something serious like that but for looking at targets, light hunting, and throwing it in the truck for road trips it should be fine.

I ordered a .45 Slayer about three weeks ago, that eased my pain but caused some in the bank account.  Regards, Tom

A couple of years ago, I bought a similar spotting scope with an angled eyepiece. I grew to hate it, as I wasn't using it for bench shooting. So, I gave it to a friend. Then out of the blue, another friend gave me an older Bushnell with a straight eyepiece. I've used it a lot since, using a car window clamp. I guess now, I can get rid of a couple of pairs CA binoculars?

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

I have it bad. That addiction that is. But I ain’t spilling my guts yet.

I will say I had a rather interesting conversation with the son in law of Jack Haley (deceased).

I ordered an FX Dreamline in .25 cal. Heard that FX has been delivering .22 cal. dreamline airguns but
have heard noting about any .25 cal. deliveries.  I will have to wait - difficult but Ok.  Danny
