How much do you plan to spend on your next rifle scope?

I would just like to get a feel for the number of people that are willing to drop a large amount of cash, verses the guys that get it done with a budget in mind.

    What ever an NXS 5.5-22X56 plus, 20 MOA Rail and 2 sets of Nightforce mounts are going for. Seems like somewhere around $1700-$1800.

    I just ordered a NF, so I guess I know which camp that puts me in.

    For rifles I have bought off the shelf (Remington 700's) I have spent $600 to $800 on the scope. I'm having a custom rifle built costing aprox. $3200 or so I am spending around $1600 for glass.

    The nightforce is a B-E-A-utiful piece of work isn't it? I would certainly like a 5.5-22x56 NXS, but my wallet is to light right now.
