Yur thinkin' where/how did he come up with a PLRF 10?
This story really sux.......
My friend/neighbor/innovation cohort/shooting buddy said his son sent him a range finder. He used it last season and didn't think it was much better than his Bushnell. His description of it led me to believe it was a Leica 1200.
We discussed it several times and he exhibited less than favorable appreciation of it.
Seeing has how I sold my 1200 to a fella a couple of years ago who used it to assist in harvesting two great bulls whatever Jim had was better than what I had.
I wanted to do some stuff so I asked to borrow it. He accumulation of "stuff" is unimaginable and he couldn't immediately find it. He did find his Bushnell which I graciously accepted but had no use for.
The next day he said he found it. I tripped over there and low and behold a PLRF 10!!!!! He had no inkling of what he had. With thou shalt not covet ringing in my head, I began thinking of the several ways I could trade him out of it. I'm thinkin' a Sig 556 fully dressed would do the job. After only a short time of thinking that way, I explained to him what he had.
I didn't borrow it. What if it broke while I was using it? Jim would have no problem with that but I certainly would!
His son is in the army stationed in Washington someplace and purchases pallets of excess equipment then sells the good stuff and junks the rest. I have no idea of how many PLRF 10s he came across but he sent one to his brother and one to his dad. How about that????
The soldier boy now has been alerted that there is a market of those things and is on the lookout for more. When/if he finds some they will be posted here at a more than reasonable price.
These two are "as new", I doubt they had been used except for testing or something. A batter test showed full charge. Plus they are encased in a hard plastic protective cover of sorts.
So if you are a self-centered, selfish old geezer as I am, send a thought along that he will come across some more of those suckers.
I'm about to make a purchase and am oscillating between the Leica 1600 and G 7. While it is the cat's meow, the PLRF 10 is simply out of my price range. Am eagerly awaiting Broz's side by side comparison between the G 7 and PLRF 10.
