Guys

My last trip to calverton convinced me to finally get a spotting scope. It s been on my to buy list for years but something else awlays takes its place. I don't know beans about the magnification numbers. I want something that I can see if I'm hitting the bullseyes at 100 yds that is not big or expensive($100 or less) Any ideas?

Harbor freight has this:

Reviews are mixed, but for $40 bucks......

Also look at Celestron spotting scopes. I have a small telescope that my kids use to look at the stars and the moon, and it works very, very well. A big plus for the Celestron spotting scopes is that you can change the eye piece and get different levels of magnification and eye relief. Look at the MAK and the Mini-Mak line.

Check out Champion's Choice www.champchoice.com They have a decent "entry level" spotting scope that sells for $95.00. I have seen it on display at Camp Perry. It is not bad at all for the money. It will cover you out to 200 yards.

If you get lucky and can find an old model of the Kowa TSN-82SV which are amazing scopes for the money.  And can sometimes be found cheaply.
