Already went and purchased the scope. My daddy wanted it because of the illuminated reticles. He is getting older in age and its becoming hard for him to see the crosshairs in low light conditions. Which 80% of our shots are taken within the last 5 minutes of the hunt. He wanted a scope that didnt have the adjustment on the objective lense, that had a 30mm tube, and illuminated reticle. So I assume that he is going to be happy. I ended up not getting one, I am going to do a little more homework and shopping before I go get something.
