It's a non issue with me. I'm just a poster who enjoys this forum and appreciates the civility that most everyone displayshere. I've been on afew forums that I'd never visit again.
We (including me) got off on a tangent that wasn't about what the OP asked or started the thread about, which was....
"So does any one out there have a Vortex Viper HS LR on order or have they been waiting to buy one? I have heard there was some issues at the company with there product line. Any one know any inside scoops on when Vortex may start shipping these scopes out? I believe its been about 3 to 4 months since I placed the order. I have not seen any show up in our major big chain sporting goods store either. The big " C ". Not that I have anything against this store because I go there weekly. Feeding the addicttion.
His original reference was to Cabelas (I'm presuming). Cabelas has very limited on hand stock in the Vortex line though most are backorderable which IMO, means drop shipped.
........far as issues with the product line, I never heard of any other than fewer scopes than customers to buy them.
I bet a lot of industries in this country today, would like to be in that boat....
