I'll settle for getting some sleep.  Last quarter was tough.

 

Aside from that, I am looking at some low light binoculars, not sure which ones yet, but I am seriously considering something along the lines of a 7x42.

Nah.  I've had a few IOR binoclars and while I like them quite a bit, I want to try something I have not had yet.  Maybe Meopta.

Good stuff guys, I am re-thinking and going over all the numers and details with the scope I have on my wish list and a couple others that I have in mind. I am leaning more towards 1CM(thanks Hakan) clicks for speed vs the 0.5CM for extreme long distance(would work realy nice with a .50cal)which I do not have any need for at this time. Whatever scope I decide on, it is going to be my last scope purchase for a long time. My wife said get the one you want and put my name on it as your gift(yes). I wish the S&B new models were out already. I may also decide to get the FN rifle in 300WSM and wait a while for the new scope releases.

I'm a simple man.  A CZ550 fs in 9.3x62 with a 2x7 Kahles cl and some tickets to Alaska.  Not that I would turn down an Empire Mauser or a new Sportster...

 

A Randall #2 "letter opener" with a red micarta handle would be a nice stocking stuffer.

If somebody wants to buy me a knife, this Kressler Hunter would be nice.

I  got to stuff my own stocking so last night I picked up a Matthews Drenelin compound bow, and ordered Badger rings and base for a Rem.PSS. And in a couple of days I'm going to order a medium priced scope but I am still deciding which gun I want to put something on as both my .375 H&H rifles need scopes and I wouldnt mind having a scope for my flat top AR-15.

Well, I didn't know if I should say it. But I like all you guys on this forum. I hope and pray my fourteen year old daughters MRI on 12/29 comes back negative. No scopes, no toys for me. She has had a very long year. This site is something that allows me to drift off and is appreciated.

I am in Livonia, Michigan. Thank you for your thoughts. My daughter is a real fighter and it would be great if the gamma knife did the trick on the rest of her tumors. I certainly don't want to see her go through any more brain surgery. She had three operations in the last seven months and they are quite long and intensive. The precision that these neurosurgeons have these days is really astounding and the whole surgical team is in the dozens. I know when I look to heroes they aren't in sports or entertainment................
Thank you again,
Doug
