Where do they get off putting out all this literature on scopes that are not readily available how in the world can they release scopes a few at a time?

When do they plan on delivering them to SWFA for us to get our hands on?

Why does it make us want it so much more when the product is not available?

HINT:  NEW PST FFP  (or HS with LR turrets)

HINT: NEW SIGHTRON III TACTICAL TURRETS

Is anyone else waiting for either of these or am I the only one???

NICE...  Thanks for the vote.

Great solidarity in this culture.

I know I am accepted by the comments I can receive...

TOO BAD WE CANT ALL HAVE HENSOLDTS...Mouth Taped Shut

NO WAIT on the nice scopes...Wink

I can hardly afford the PST... I just got rid of a $3k Spotter and a $2k scope to get a $800 scope that is not in stock...By the time it is in stock the Money will be gone...

C'mon man, you know the marketing game... they announce they are coming out with the new "latest and greatest" long before it even starts production so they will have an EAGER buying public once it hits the stores and the inventory will immediately drop, increasing demand because it is such a "HOT" item... "everybody has one, wants one, so it MUST be FANTASTIC".  Even if it is fantastic, marketing sucks...

As for the Hensoldt... my wife saved for 3 years without my knowledge to get me that scope (that DEAREST of women, my "mo chuisle") and if you count the time since I last had one for use, I waited just about 15 years...  I am NOT a patient person...

"She saved the money on her own, I had NO idea, and when the right opportunity arose, she jumped on it.  "

NICE NOW WE ARE ALL JEALOUS of something else.  Really Sad

sorry for taking it public should have asked but how priceless is that...

I keep hearing patience is a virtue.

I've never been able to see what's so danged virtuous about it myself, mind you, but maybe that slogan will do something for you...

You should talk to Kickboxer about it.  He clearly thinks patience is a virtue...
