Alright maybe thats a little optimistic, I try and spend as little as I can to get something that will do what I need. With that said , I'm pretty certain I'll never plunk down over $1000 for a scope (barring a lottery win) just to many things like college for the boys, retirement, and eating that get in the way.
Retirement is a thing of the past isn't it? And that eating is a nasty habit that you should try quitting anyway.
All kidding aside, I know what you mean. I make a pretty darn good living, but two kids a mortgage, etc.. You know the "responsibilities" do have to come first. Heck I'm young and trying to get my feet planted firm, so I will keep beating my head off the wall trying to find the cheaper, better scope.
