Re: keep or return the vortex?
I only know a couple people that run a Viper, they seem to be a really good scope for the money. I have the Weaver built Nitrex TRII ( same scope as the Super Slam) and it too is a good scope. Nice glass, turrets/ adjustments are spot on, and it feels like it's built like a tank. You won't go wrong with either.
Just my opinion but I if you mount it and use it then it's used goods. You don't have to mount it to see if whether you like it or not. The only thing I can think of that mounting it to check it out is to see how it handles recoil.
Courage is just fear that has said it's prayers.
The people trying to say the 2nd Amendment is outdated are probably the same folks that would say the same thing about the Bible.
