Scopes in the same price range you would be better with the Leupold i have a bushnell and a leupold and find the leupold just has the edge on twilight shooting

nope - especially not good for stalking in poor light conditions regardless of what the sales hype says.

A mate tried to economise instead of buying a good fixed power and immediately regretted it.

I know that i'm fortunate in that i seem to be one of the few still with a job in this screwed up country but for me the statement above just doesn't make sense (not intended as an insult HORNET). Will i use it in both good and bad lighting - yes, Will i use it in dry, wet, mist, cloudy, etc - yes, Is it an optical instrument from which i will require the best possible sight - yes..........

Now the BUSHNELL BANNER AO 6x18x50 :

Good in both good and bad light lighting - no
Good in wet conditions with a decent water shedding treatment - no
Will it give me adequate optical views in all the conditions that i require - no
So why buy it and accept 2nd best, 3rd or worse?


A BUSHNELL BANNER AO 6x18x50 is about what - £130-150 in the UK? So a quick browse on the net gets me what for say £200 max:

2nd hand ZEISS DIATAL -Z 6 X 42 T - £200 (includes postage)
2nd hand Doctor 6x42 - £199
Bushnell Elite 3200 3-9 x 40 - £199 http://www.swillingtonshootingsupplies. ... -3-9-x-40/
Falcon Menace 4-18x56 - £195 from optics warehouse (a decent budget scope popular with many silhouette and tactical shooters & with 96% light transmission)


So would i buy the Bushnell Banner scope...would i F**K!
