Well update to the update! Got a call from optics planet. Seens they are 4 weeks from shipping that particular scope. They made me a deal on a different scope so i upgraded with the exception of the FFP which i have been using SFP for years so i can manage easily. I got the Vortex Viper HS-T 6-24 SFP for $427 shipped. Better glass. So i guess we wait now.
