  1. Absolutely it is. I’ve compared my entry level Vortex scopes to most other entry level scopes side by side and haven’t found any others that can match the quality of the glass and features available for the same price. I have A couple of higher end Vortex with Japanese glass and have compared those with a few others in the same price range, with similar results as the entry level.
  2. Yes sir. I like it so far, can’t wait to do the final sight in and hunt with it. I wasnt Sure if I’d like the red reticule with my red spotlights, but when it’s on its brightest setting, it really is nice.
  3. I got Curious and looked at Sharks site. They have an auto emptying one. Nice.
  4. I’ve had/used Roombas before. They work pretty well, but when you forget to clean them out, it can become a little bit of a pain, because they won’t run. The next one I will Get will be one with the auto emptying option. I think It’s the Roomba 7 that does that. I will have to look at the Shark ones though, I have A Shark vacuum and it’s by far the best regular vacuum I’ve ever had.
  5. I have a bunch of Vortex scopes. My muzzleloader and 308 deer rifle currently have Crossfire II 3-9x40s on them. Both are Mildot reticles, as I’m not a fan of BDC reticles. They are great scopes, especially for the money. If you were to buy a more expensive scope, look at the Viper HS line from Vortex. You simply get more for your money with Vortex when you are comparing new scopes.
  6. Winning the lottery wouldn’t have much of an effect on where I live as it would what amount of property , etc I bought there. I’m just waiting for my kids to both finish high school, and then NY will be a memory for me. Tennessee is most likely where I go unless the political and tax climate changes drastically there.
  7. I think You are correct. I added The quick release rear pin on mine Which helps. The DSI I have Already had one when I got It. 458 Socom is going to be my next one. Gonna do my own build on that one.
  8. It has a day and night mode. In day mode it’s basically regular a video scope. Accuracy has been great with it. It has different presets or profiles to allow you to switch between rifles with a QD mount. The resolution is good, but not the same as looking through a traditional scope, which is why I dont normally use it for daytime hunting, but you can if you want to. when I replace It, I’ll post on the site about it.
  9. Thanks guys. My night rig currently has an IR scope on it. Next upgrade to that one will be when I go thermal. I’m thinking before I switch that scope to thermal, my next change up will be to pick up a thermal spotter for scanning.
  10. You trust the media with anything? I dont It’s all about ratings with them. They sensationalize lots of things. I will Not be a part of it.
  11. Exactly. Thanks Virgil.
  12. Doing that would be complete disrespect for the families. I feel That they should go to the media with, but I will Not.
  13. I know Others that have gotten it with no real issues.
