Last week I gather all the orphans out of the scope pile and line them up on the bar and took a picture of them....so enjoy...will do the same for all the sets of binoculars that I own....

Enjoy.....

It appears you need to purchase a few more long guns to marry them up with, so they won't be lonely.  @--0--0118 @--0--0118

Gut - Somehow, I must agree with you....unlike binoculars, these scopes needs to be on top of something, they cannot work alone....LOL....

Duct tape a pair together and use them as binoculars??  Nah, that would be dumb, just go buy more .308 caliber scope carriers!

the great outdoors - get out there

Thought I would take a picture of the binoculars...like herding cats...they are a pair here and a pair there but managed to get all but one pair (in my truck) rounded up all in one place and snapped this picture of them...

Looks like you need a few more 308s and other rifles to mount those poor scopes on, they look lonely without a rifle.

Yari - I have heard that a lot these days and started out using large and heavy Kmart Jason 10x42mm binos....later on they got stolen which turned out to be the best thing that could have happen to me, because my second pair was the Leupold 9x25mm made by Leica with both eye adjustable diopter...great binos, drop in your pocket, see into the woods....I guess you could say that started the avalanche....not sure why I have this optic problem....I try to find the best binoculars for under $300 I can find, do some testing on them and report to you guys on TH...sometimes I splurge and spend more that I should money on some things.....

Zos, I know what you mean....why stop at 20 right??...LOL...

Yari - I just check them this morning and they are 9x25mm, pocket binos that you can fold and stick in your pocket...use these binos for years and years until I bought my EL's....

I agree you need a few more rifles for your lonely scopes. For a guy with only two eyes you got a lot of Binos  --099-780 but hey get what you enjoy is what I say. Nice collection Bo.

Thanks for the comments....what I try to do is to find the best product for the money, buy it, test it and the report/review it with enough time...heading do to GA in a few weeks and will take down some of the optics Tract, Ziess Terra and the Leupold Mojave BX-3 to check out while I am down there.....Will let others such as Deerhead, Split Toe, Jap51, Metalman, Cobb Guy and a few others look at them and tell me which pair do they like the best....it is going to be a close call between the Leupold and Ziess....both of those pairs are very close......

BTW - Got to add a new scope to the scope pile...A Burris E1 3-9X x 40mm with a 30mm tube will be here next week.....take one away using the Vortex Viper HS 4-16X to mount on the 26 Nosler and had to add one and this is a good scope to add to it....I have long like Burris Products and own a few of their scope, spotting scopes but dealing with them really sucked...I have never like dealing with them but since they were bought out by Beretta that seems to be a good move....

Got a Cabela's Flyer last weekend and the sale started today so this morning got my flyer and what appeared to be a sale, well, maybe not...I have looked on their (Cablea's) website a couple of times yesterday and very early this morning wondering if they were going to put it on sale...but they still had the scope listed for $299...never seen a 30mm tube scope that was under $300 for any reason, sale or not....but this is the first time I have seen a 30mm tube scope on sale like this....

Had to put in a stock code number of 03600226 in the search box and the sale popped up...gave another SKU number so I clicked on it and the scope came up as $149...have the MSRP price....

Also today order me a Tract Optics, 22 Fire 4-12X x 40mm, 1 inch tube, BDC reticule that will go on the very accurate CZ 455.....love the 17 HMR barrel that is on it now, have three other barrels for it as well, have two 22 mags barrels one with sites and the other one without sites, and the 22 LR barrel....if it is anything like the Tract Binos that I have, it will be crystal clear...we will see.....
