  1. TRUE - they hit peanut butter faster than cheese
  2. Very well could be but again I think the word about that would've been out by now. To be honest I think there is simply an enormous markup on these things these days. Now that I think of it ... I don't think I even own a weapon that is more than $1,500.00 value. That scope is more than the weapon itself. Amazing.
  3. Still impressive ... Notice they rated it higher than the US Optics model .... hhhmmmmmm
  4. Now that I think about it he probably drop-shipped straight from Bushnell. DAMN ... these things have a markup !!!
  5. That article still shows them at $2149.00 ... OUCH !!!
  6. I agree with this. I've searched this pretty good within the last year and this model was NEVER lower-dollar. I've looked it up on Optics Planet and DVOR as well as some of the other vendors and it was pricey. Problem is I just don't have a range I can take one of these to put it to the test it deserves. I might have actually read some of those reviews previously (or similar other reviews) and one thing that always stood out is it had great glass and the 34MM allowed a lot more natural light in compared to the 30MM lens. Maybe I'll get a chance to check one out this coming year at a gun show once it gets closer to the holiday season. Cannot even find one in the Academy stores around here and usually they have at least one of everything. Last time I was in there our local Bass Pro Shop didn't have one neither.
  7. That's interesting. You know out of all the gun shows I've attended here through the years I cannot recall seeing anyone selling one of those specific models. It must be one of Bushnell's top-end models. Our gun shows are fairly big and often with more than 1 or 2 optics vendors per show and Bushnell is popular but I don't recall seeing anything that scale ever offered. This is most likely because most folks won't spend that money or the vendors don't have the capital to tie up for that very long. Of course this is what causes me to be interested in that model. How's the mount you got for it? Does it look like it needs to be honed? It would be nice to see some photos of it mounted up and maybe take some measurements. Congrats again on the purchase.
  8. Looks great !!! Sounds like it has 1st. class features. I have read the glass on that one is premium. How's the weight?
  9. I have always wanted to drive this Parkway. I've heard it's a sight to behold.
  10. Thanks Blue ... helped me out with some spare small parts and QD sling loops
  11. I guess so but unfortunately we weren't issued any of those. Too bad.
  12. A few of our fleet vehicles were outfitted with these. Very well made but unfortunately very expensive too.
  13. I agree. I find it hard to make any sense from some of these too.
  14. Given what I said about transgenders at Target, I couldn't figure out how they came up with brown camo. I figured they missed it totally.
  15. Thanks. I'll see if I can find a dealer locally that has one that I can check out up close and take some measurements.
