    On average, which of these sites and or catalogs do you mostly order your scopes from, and why?

    I've used Optics Planet 3 times and have gotten good prices and fast/free shipping.
    Also have bought from Midsouth. Good people.

    I have ordered from Optics Planet and Natchez.
    No issues at all and great pricing.

    I order from whoever has it the cheapest yet still looks like a reputable company.

    Don't buy scopes very often, but when I do, it's usually through Midway USA (EOtech) or Bear Basin Outfitters (NF and S&B)

    Optics planet is great and has great service. I shot around on the net and amazon is usually really good for prices and having shopped with amazon for years (at least once a week I buy something of it) its very good. Midwayusa is good too. I recently bought a binoculars and rangefinder from binoculars.com and it was a lot cheaper than anyone else, they sell scopes too.

    I've ordered both my new scope from Joe Bobs Outfitters. Great service good prices free shipping if over $80.

    I also have done a lot of business with Optics Planet.

    I always liked Natchez's optics pages in their catalogs, plus they handle the Burris line with the freebies, binoc,spotting scope,GPS, with a scope package deal.The shipping was fast, pricing and freebies as advertised. Bought a Simmons for my Hornet same good service.

    Now I'm saving the bucks to buy a Leupold get a accessory free deals !

    Midway, Natchez, and Midsouth mostly, with occasional purchases from OpticsPlanet or SWFA.

    I shop at Midway, Midsouth, SWFA, and OP for their closeout/sale items. Natchez carries major manufacturer's refurbs, and those optics can be quite the bargain.

    I have a dealer about half an hour away from me that is the largest stocking dealer of Nightforce in the country (I believe) and they also carry Trijicon, Hendsoldt, Zeiss, Leupold, Nikon, Aimpoint, S&B, Swaro, etc. I have no reason to go anyplace else, unless I run across something while browsing on the net or at Cabelas (my emergency depot for reloading stuff).

    Optics Planet and ManVenture Outpost. ManVenture tends to be low on stock come autumn though, but seems to have the best prices.
