Establishment??? What the heck do you want from this thread?, dont be offended just because some people dont walk the same road as you, these scopes are only as good as the user/shooter, as I have said before I have seen people with $150 rifles win the day and some with $6000 rifle do the same,
Its not about what you spend or who is right, IT is about what is right for YOU,
and its not about buying just because ya Mate likes it,
Bingo!! There are extremely high level shooters shooting FFP and SFP, they use them for different reasons and in different ways so what ever works the best for you rock it!
