I have spent a lot of time on a forum in which every opinion gets savaged in a very unfriendly manner. I quit that site cause a civil exchange of ideas and opinions was no longer possible. I am going to step out on faith and ask a couple questions of all our Ruger folks here. 1 - What type of scopes do you buy and why. 2 - What scopes would you buy if they all cost the same? (yes, I know, this is pure fantasy but lets have some fun with it) Maybe some gun/caliber specific answers would expand the field of responses. I will be glad to share my opinions too if this thread gets any legs but I'd love to hear from some others first.
