I haven't ever held a Sightron or Vortex in my hands. There are no dealers nearby that stock either brand. Everywhere I look on the net Vortex is getting great reviews, but the brand isn't well known nor does it have a long history like Leupold. I had never heard of Sightron until I started reading up on longer range shooting and tactical-type scopes. History for them is unknown to me.
Money is tight for me on these things, and I just can't drop $600 to $1000 because a bunch of people I don't know personally said that they are good. I maybe a little paranoid, but I can't afford to spend that kind of money on a scope with out playing with it a little.
I really hope that this spring when the Dakota Territory gun show comes through Grand Forks and Fargo, ND that a vendor has these brands so I can see them and form a first-hand opinion of them for myself.
I think that my feelings on them may apply to many others out in the world, but it is possible that they don't too.
