    I am particularly fond of the Leupold Vari-Xii 2x-7x:

    1-4x variable, with a "true 1x" on the bottom end. Fiber optic and tritium illuminated reticle. Very durable. Basically takes the role of a red dot/holographic site for up close speed while on 1x while being just a throw of the lever away from upping the magnification for more precision/distance shots with better target identification

    Wow!
    But I think I could get in trouble in the Garden State for just looking at that rig.

    I've tried a lot. My VX-2 is as much scope as I will ever NEED. It is enough better than the older VX-II to be worth upgrading in my opinion. The VX-3's and Zeiss are supposed to be better, as are some others. I suppose they are, but for my uses the VX-2 is perfect.

    B&L Elite 4200 6-24X Great clarity and light gathering and fabulous adjustment accuracy. Has been on my SAKO 75 .22-250 Varmint for a decade.

    That's easy. My favorite for the money and for versatility is the Leupold VX3 2.5-8X36.

    VX-3. I've got a couple, plus some VX-III's. Lots of difference in optics. I've got an older Burris Black Diamond that's excellent.

    I have a B&L 1.5x6 on my my muzzle loader. I thought it was a good scope until I used my VX-R on my deer rifle this year. The B&L is going away and another VX-3 or VX-R will take it's place before next season.

    Well I guess I'll be different and say Vortex Vipor HS, I've got 3 of them and out of the 3 my best is the 4-16x44 LR w/ Dead Hold BDC on my CZ 550 308. Then the reg 4-16x44 on my CZ Varmitert 223, and then the 2.5-10x44 on my custom 308.

    Zeiss Diavaris and Diatals. Any model, the newer the better.

    If I'd have to name one it would be a coin toss between Octagon Diavari ZM 2.5-10x48T* and Victory Diavari 6-24x72T*. Probably Octagon because of less massive size and weight and the W-T-H -factor of an octagonally shaped scope.

    I like my two Vari-X models, a VXII and VX2 better than many scopes I've tried/owned. My next favorite scopes were two B&L Balvar 8b's that I bought used from a buddy back around 1970. They belonged to his father, but we're hardly used then.

    They've since had lens delaminations, but were great scopes for many years. My Mueller 4.5-14x is the best scope VALUE I've had. It's very clear and accurate and the adjustments work great.

    For anyone wondering I also own a Swarovski Z3 3-10X42 that is excellent, and a Nightforce 3-5-15X50 NXS that is also a great scope. The I still like the Leupold X3 2.5-8X36 better for more applications, the glass is pretty good (not quite as good as the others), and the size is perfect.

    Please educate the ignorant (i'm referring to myself here) in what the heck that is? I've never seen a set-up like that before.

    It's a Zeiss Conquest mounted in German "claw mounts". It goes on/off in seconds and ALWAYS goes back to being sighted in "perfectly".

    Not sure, but it looks like a double rifle.
    It's ability to fire more than one centerfire cartridge without reloading will probably qualify it as an assault weapon under the legislation being proposed in New York. This is because, as we all know, two bullets are not needed to kill a deer.

    I have two favorites my Leupold VXII on my Savage 30-06 which has a fantastic eye relief and glass quality, but my Nikon Buckmaster on my 308 Winchester 70 has some great glass too and the BDC rectical which I consider the best in the business.

    I like Weaver T series scopes for target shooting. I'd probably like the high dollar scopes but I'll probably never know for sure. With the way the government is eating up my money I'll be lucky to afford a Mattel scope.

    I got a Zeiss 3x9x44 for my 223 Winchester, after that I decided there is not a better scope, at least for me.
    So when money comes available I will get a 6x20x50 Zeiss maybe if I get rich I could get a Victory 6x24x72. The clearest scope I ever looked threw.
