Leica Range Finder

Does anyone one know the best price/place to get a Leica Range finder? I only want the 800 model (I know my limits). I have a work colleague visiting the USA at the end of the month who can pick it up for me. Location isn't an issue I will get it shipped to him. So where's the best place to look guys?

Thanks

Bill will set you up.
what do you mean you know your limits? Is it the range or is it the cost, because a Leica 900 will not range a deer sized target past 600 (possibly less).

Its my humour, I was referring to my limits in respect of distance, the deer here I shoot mainly roe, I would not dream of taking them past 400meters there just too damn small. But your comment does worry me slightly, I thought the L900 would be good to the range they would work too no matter what the size of target. Am I being too stupid or too optimistic or both??

Thanks guys

Be forewarned. Your Lieca wont work worth a crap in the fog. I recently returned from Montana and was dissapointed with my Lica 1200 in the fog. When this happened I remembered that I was on a bear hunt with catshooter and he was having the same problem with his lieca Geovid Binocular/rangefinder. I wish I would have remembered this before I bought Lieca. If you can save a little extra and go for the Swaros.

Hi Bigcat,
My buddy got the same problem with leica 900 the small pocket unit, he could not range at all through rain, and snowing day.
AT ALL, AT ANY DISTANCES.
HE RETURNED BACK THE UNIT next day.
With my Newcon200Pro I was ranging on forecast, raining, and snowing day past 1400yards, all the time.

Chris
