Found this link on another site.  Looks like Bushnell has agreed to buy Millett Optics.

WTF???? I'm not sure this is a good thing for us consumers. The competition is what keeps things at a high quality for dollar spent. I hope that Bushnell won't let the Millett line suffer, and will continue their customer service and warranties.

I hope we can get him on here to comment on this deal.
THAT will be interesting. Wink
 
 
As an aside, I PM'd Steve a few weeks ago and he hasn't responded yet.
Don't think he even opened it yet.

Steve may soon be unemployed, and he might not be able to talk about the deal.

Quality rifle scopes like Leupold dont require any snake oil like rainguard to enhance them.  Whacko
 
Inferior optics and their spell bound consumers on the other hand.....Cool

LOL, Whacko you must be one of those who thinks "if it's not broke don't fix it."  Thank goodness most people in the world don't follow that stupid idea, or we would still be living in the stone age grinding corn on rocks and wiping our asses with our hands.
