Hi all....I'll be shopping for a spotting scope. Anyone know who has a good selection and good prices. I'll be shooting rifle 200-300 yards. Thanks in advance

If you want 'cheap but decent' I'd suggest [URL=http://www.natchezss.com]. For the higher end stuff at good prices try B&H Photo (don't know the link offhand); I've had good dealings with them for years. Just do your own research and figure out what you want before you call 'em; they're more like a 'discount broker', I.E. 'no advice'.

best, weegee

I haven't bought anything from http://www.swfa.com , but I have heard nothing but good words on their selection and prices.

I would suggest that you don't skimp on optics. Buy the best you can afford and you'll be glad you did.
I tried to save a few dollars by buying a cheap Tasco and got junk.
Cabela's had some nice looking scopes I thought about trying. The Nikons are nice too.
