Yes I do and did
I bought a new Nikon Monarch X - 10.5 by 42 binoculars
I bought a new Nikon Prostaff 20-60X80 spotting scope
I bought a new Leica 1600 Rangemaster
I bought a new Bushnell 1200 Arc rangefinder
Im going to buy a new Nightforce or Leupold for my AR-50, have older Nightforce Benchrest 8-32X56 but want one with .25 adjustment and more of it 5-22 etc.
Any suggestions people?!? ;) Going to use 50 moa base from Armalite so want at least 50 moa adjustment to be able to zero at 100. Want reliable turret scope to be able to return to zero reliably. thanks
Love the binoculars for the price and 100 rebate, couldn't fire on a big boy just yet. Gather lots of light, LIGHT, used them all fall deer, elk and coyote hunting. Caps/covers suck big time now half lost. I use my stuff and my friends think I abuse them. I clean glass with cloth and cleaner and have them filled with sticks grass snow and still look just fine. Compared to uncles cabelas euro models - the same looking through them but his draw a little more light at dusk. Im still happy for price. Worth the price difference compared to regular Monarchs. Am looking for good cover that is quick to use and not bulky. Does anyone have any experience with skin/scope coat type covers? thanks
Use the spotter a little but not enough to do a good review. Wish had fine focus. Maybe too big for packing deep in and will probably get 16-48X60 for that.
Have used Leica 1600 around home and took on all trips but didn't have any long shots for its use. I have been using the Bushnell 1200 arc for out to 800 on deer and elk. I got the 1200 for bow hunting but used it mainly rifle hunting this year. Did shoot an elk at 636 with it. The Bushnell is unbelievable for the price people. Have someone to get a present for-- get them this rangefinder. Ebay on auction I got mine for 280 camo model as well. Only complaint is NO lighted reticle, but at dusk i would range and then look into sky to see reading.
