Re: uso or nf
This discussion between the USO and NF got comical at my dinner table last night (kinda). For those of you who have kids between 10 and 15-yearsold you can probably relate.
My 12 and 15 year-old were debating what was better, the Hummer H2 or the Porsche Cheyenne. My kids dream big and have this illusion my wife and I are rich. Anyhow, it was determined that both vehicles were about the same price range $50 to 55K. Then my know it all 12-yearold Ryan made the statement that the Porsche Cheyenne turbo was the ultimate because it was 92K. Oh how this all-important debate between the two of them dragged on through supper. Each one trying to out do the other with all of their so-called technical data.
My wife then asked why a turbo model would cost an additional $40K. Ryan’s reply was something a long the way, “mom you wouldn’t understand because you drive a Suburban”! My wife then said wouldn’t it be better to buy 2 brand new Suburban’s and a small car or 4 decked out Honda Civics for the price of one Porsche Cheyenne Turbo. Again, Ryan cocked the bolt back of his anti-aircraft mom gun and shot her out of the sky again with such a ridiculous question. So the debate rolled on.
Then I asked one of the two dumbest questions of night. Why not a Lexus or BMW SUV. Ryan then turned the anti-aircraft parent gun on me and pulled the trigger. I was told only yuppies drive BMW’s and rich people drive a Lexus or Mercedes. My last dumb question was, “well all of these points you’ve both made are very valid, but the fact remains we don’t have an auto-von here, and the speed limit in Texas is only 70 mph on the highway. This really through a wrench into their discussion, but again the anti-aircraft parent gun was turned on me and I was once and for all blasted out of the sky and out of the discussion.
This discussion between USO and NF sounded a bit like their discussion. If I had that kind of money to spend on one of those scopes, I might do it. But my needs and requirements can be filled with a Leuy or IOR or another quality scope at a lot less than price of the other two. That’s not to say, someone’s need and requirements don’t dictate one of the high end products.
Oh well, sorry for straying away from the real topic.

Distance is not an issue, but the wind will make it interesting!
