So, you wanna buy a scope. Maybe you have even narrowed things down a bit and you know the type of scope you need. Problem is, there are a lot of brands out there, and one size or type does not fit all. Now, suppose you are like the Nowhere Man from The Yellow Submarine, who had “so little time, so much to know.” How can you zero in on the scope that will give you the best bang for your buck? Fortunately, you have several options:
• Buy one from every manufacturer, and try it out yourself
• Subscribe to all the hunting and shooting mags in the world
• Go on the Internet, search “rifle scope reviews”, and check out the one you have in mind
• Check out hunting and shooting forums (these tend to offer more candid comments)
*If you don't find what you're looking for, you probably don't need a scope anyway. Get a bow and arrow.
