Refreshing to read a scope thread where people are NOT saying that you have to pay $600 for a scope. I just bought a cheap Savage 110 with a cheap Tasco scope on it. I'll enjoy using the Tasco until it breaks (if it breaks).
"The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles." Col. Jeff Cooper, from The Art of the Rifle
