How about $225?

In Topic: Best scope choice?

I stand by my statement that higher magnification is not the end all and be all, and most folks are better served by less.

This is absolute truth.

I have "old eyes". Can't see irons. Or...When I can see irons with corrective lenses, I can't see the target. Aimpoint to the rescue! My old Comp M2 mounted on my bone stock M&P15 would ring a MGM flasher at 300 EVERY.SINGLE.TIME as long as that 4mil dot was covering the target. I use Aimpoint PROs now so I can see a bit of target around that dot.  Now when you are jittering like a squirrel on meth from drinking the amount of coffee that I do? Well, no optic can help with that.  Past 300 requires a little magnification and is mandatory for me.  20X just isn't needed for mortal men.  How many years did the Marine Corps snipers use fixed power 10s?

I guess the moral to this post is that different tasks require different tools.

That Beretta you have is setup nicely with all the Langdon and other stuff. I'd shoot the hell out of it. There's not a thing wrong with the spaghetti blasters.

Stoeger won production with a 92 of some kind, IIRC. I'm sure it can be done again with the right person running it. Guns don't get slower with age they just succumb to the new hotness and/or sponsor.
