Big Uncle, I'm probably going to go with the Leupold. I'd already looked at it in a store, and I kept trying to tell myself that the picture wasn't that much better than the Nikon or Burris. In the store, it probably wasn't, but I've found the difference between a $200 scope and a $400 scope is about 10 minutes at each end of the day in the woods.
Found the Loopy for $349 including shipping on Optics Planet. What do you think about buying scopes online? Save the sales tax.
I bought a shoulder belt rig from Pistol Packaging several years back. I'll have them make a new holster for the belt after I get the scope mounted and have the right measurements.
Beware of a man with one gun because he'll know how to shoot it.
When you're dead, you don't know that you're dead. It is only difficult for the others.
It is the same when you're stupid.
