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.
