Maybe she needs new batts?

Yea what jeff said "batts"!

In my Leica 1600 after a couple of weeks of playing around testing, it started lieing to me! Well, the Duracell {good till 2019} that came with it was replaced and it was right back ON! Don't know if when you knock the top 20 % of the power out of the battery the unit will start to lie a littke bit or not. I would not think so cause it should give the max volts till it says "uncle". I remember some one telling me this year that they found that Duracell (my favorites) with his experience - were not the best to use in high-tech stuff?

Re: Best rangefinder??????

Well, I got a Bushy 1000 ARC from good ole Cabelas (I live about 2 miles from the store and it's a wallet magnet.....).

I needed a new set of bino's becaue I've been using my wife's 30 year old pair of somethings that weigh about 10 pounds and are always fuzzy (maybe a good thing...)

I got the package with the Bushy ARC1000, the H2O bino's and a game knife set that was actually sharp...actually razor sharp.

The bino's ain't bad, actually pretty good and lightweight. The game set has a nice saw for cutting down saplings (I presume) and...

The ARC has ballistic tables built in and ranges (a yield sign) at 990 yards. I compared it to my cousins' Swaro and the Bushy was always within a yard.

It acquires really fast and it is readible in low light.

Not bad for 230 bucks.

A lot of this stuff has gotten cheap enough that it can readily become landfill filler if it don't work.

Interestingly, scopes have actually increased in cost, at least good ones.

Trashco's were always cheap.....

Im satisfied of that Victory PRF 8x26, its more economy that Leica or Swaro. That Zeiss is made in Japan.

I have the Leica Geovid binoculars with the built in rangefinder. They will range a deer to 1200 yards with no problem if you can hold the square on them steady enough. They are awesome.
