Anybody have any experience with this spotting scope:

I am looking for a reasonably priced scope for High Power shooting. I don't have the funds for a $300 or $400 scope right now so it either something like this or do without. Would I be better off to wait or would this work OK for the money? Thanks.

Sorry, I don't have experience with this scope. IMO, you generally get what you pay for with scopes. They don't wear out. If you buy a good one, you will be using it for life.

Lots of good info on scopes for high-power competition at this site:

the one you showed here looks quite good ...
but be sure on what distance you wanna use it !

the 50mm-scopes allow comfortable use within 50 yards at max, to less for rifle shooting, quite enough for "pistoleros"

I purchased a 18x-54x*60mm two weeks ago on ebay (no bidding, professional german trader with "buy it now"), it´s a bit more expensive (150-200 $/€) but you have a bit more on brightness if the range shows bad light-conditions. I am satisfied ;)
