Re: Comparison: Bushnell elite 4200 - Nikon monarch

Now aint that just grand?

Having gone through the agonizing process of choosing a scope, not one of the 2 finalists is available in this country!

Bugger that then, my old scope just got it's contract renewed for the next couple of years it seems.

if there is one thing i envy Americans for (make that 2)...
1. You are spoiled for choice
2. Your gun laws

Re: Comparison: Bushnell elite 4200 - Nikon monarch

Iron Worker,

South Africa - Here a firearm is not considered to be property. All gunowners now have to re register their firearms, write competency tests and motivate each and every differnt rifle they apply for. Let me say outright that my figures are not 100% acurate, but only about 25% of all legal weapons was succesfully relisenced over the past 3 years. New firearm licences are almost unheard of and loads of gunshops went bancrupt. You are limited to 2 rifles, unless you obtain dedicated hunter status (more tests and compulsory membership of clubs and hunts) allowing you 4 rifles.
Quoting someone from another website:
By 2010 the government would have suceeded in making 75% of guns illegally owned, and they would probably call that a victory of sorts.

Yes i do feel threatened, and so should every other law abiding gunowner and citizen. The goverment is going to great lengths to disarm the inocent. The criminals get to keep their weapons.
Hey, but let's talk scopes and hunting - much more fun!
