As an aside, I went to my LGS this morning to look at scopes, and frankly I'm impressed with the low-priced models. Nikon makes great lenses and their Pro-Staff's can normally be had for under $200.00.
Natchez Shooter's Supply has the Burris Fullfield II on sale right now
for ~$170.00, and they throw in a Garmin GPS. That's a great deal on a Burris scope. They also have the Weaver Classic V 2-10
for about $150.00, which is also a good buy on a classic rifle scope.
