This just popped up in another thread.
Do you have any scopes that are absolute keepers?
I am sure we all have particular guns that would have to be pried from our cold dead hands, but do you have rifle scopes (or binoculars and spotters, really) that you feel the same about?
For me, my three Super Snipers are absolute keepers:
Nimrod 6x40 (Israeli scope designed for Galil Sniper)
Vortex Viper 6x32
I am not particularly attached to any of them.
S.S. scopes are special to me because I have absolute trust in these scopes and they also have some special significance to me because of how important the OpticsTalk community is for my way of life.
Viper 6x32 binoculars are on the list simply because I spent so much time and energy trying to persuade people that lower magnification binoculars have a lot more utility than they are given credit for.
While I am sure Vortex decided to make the 6x32 after extensive market research, I like to think that my efforts helped as well.
