    3 options, but you can only pic 2
    Cheap
    Light gathering
    Distance

    Save another 500 and look for the best deal you can on a 3x12x56 European manufacturer scope... Ziess, swaro, meopta, s&b

    You can get a S&B Klassik 3-12X50 from EuroOptic for $999.00.

    For $500.00 I’d look on the used/demo sections of Sample List, OP, EuroOptic, CameraLandNY, Scopelist etc for a Trijicon Accupower, Meopro or VX-R.
    Yeah, but do you consider a dog to be a filthy animal? I wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy but they're definitely dirty. But, a dog's got personality. Personality goes a long way.

    Leupold VX-III is a great scope, you can get a 3.5-10x50mm or 4.5-14x50mm for just under $500.

    That was the first scope I ever owned. Sat atop my woodmaster. It got kind of fuzzy after about 5 or 6 years and I replaced it with a vari-x II. That old 8 point got repurposed and still sits atop my 10-22.

    Bought this scope this year and love it. Just a plain reticle with a 30 mm tube and no turrets. Hard price to beat.

    The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is,
    as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

    I remember looking in a cabelas magazine everyday till I finally saved that 150$ for a Simmons 44 mag

    I got a Leupold VX-3i this year. 3.5 x 10 x 56. It was 899.99 at Simpson’s in Sumter. So far I couldn’t be happier.
