I was a Leupold snob until...

As a kid, my first scope was a Weaver K4. As I got more experience & could afford more I discovered Leupold. I was hooked! For years & years I only bought Leupolds. Fixed powers, low variables, big variables, they have all been and are great! But a few years back I strayed from my conviction & to saved a few dollars, for a very un-special rifle, I bought another brand. To my surprise it was slightly better than the Leupold - in all respects! That scope is now on my favorite long range rifle. Yes, you can teach an old dog new tricks! LOL

But to be fair, I have never even looked through a Nightforce or Swarovski or considered paying over a $1,000 for a scope.

BTW: My favorite scope, edging out Leupold, is a 6x-24x Pentax Lightseeker. Superb! If you look at Pentax & it's not a "Lightseeker", its junk!
