Has anyone had the chance to use the Burris Laser Rangefinder Scope? I'd love to here reviews...especially from the optics experts of SWFA. What's the
verdict will it hold up in the field? How about the optics themselves? What are the pluses and minuses? How is as far as ease of use? What applications
would it be good for? Hunting, big game, varmint? How about as a possible tactical scope application?

I called Burris (Larry) yesterday and they said that the scopes are not released until January 2007. I questioned the rating for the temperature 14F to 120F, I know I would prefer a lower rating below zero.

Lets re-surface this since November 2006! (since it's availibility). 

Any experience or recommendations with the Burris Laser Rangefinder Scope?

Sure there can be a multitude of seperate scope and rangefinder options, but how about this compromise for an "all in one", occassional deer hunter looking to get a better idea of that distance with some decent optics?  sure a little extra weight, bulkeness, but if it works well might be well worth it!?

I was looking at Burris' Black Diamond, their LRS and now they have a deal on SWFA for the Laser Range finder scope with a bonus free spotting scope (Burris15-45x60).

Has any one used the Bushnell Yardage Pro Rangfinder Scope. I here these are selling about 8-2 over the Burris. The Bushnell has bullet drop turrets. I don't know if the Burris has these. It also looks like the Bushnell is lighter and greater field of view, not much though. Are there any other brands looking at bring out these type of scopes.

A freind of mine bought a burris rf scope. I wouldn't have much confidence in longevity, of the rf within it, due to recoil. I might be wrong,,,, but I think a decent scope and a seperate rangefinder, are a much better option. I also prefer the idea of rangeing without pointing my gun. My freind has also pointed out that he has found himself pointing his rifle at buildings etc to get a range which to me is a big NO NO. He is selling his. I am also hearing of people who are considering them for their kids to help them shoot more accurate. Again a child may not fully realise the dangers. Buy a good scope and a good range finder SWFA has Zeiss demos for $529 I think, and Swaro demos for $699. Both are very good buys. I personaly feel that RF scopes have inherent dangers, and would prefer if they didn't exist. A gun should not be pointed untill a target is aquired. MHO
