    I went to Great Guns and picked up my Weatherby 7mm-08. It is a sweet little gun and I got it for $491. I didn't get to shoot it today, but I can't wait.

    I have 5 scopes and all are Nikon. They are pretty good quality scopes from what I can tell. They are one of the best mid range priced scopes I have found. Can't quite spend the money on a Swarovski or Zeiss, if ya know what I mean.

    You guys with the buckmaster 3-9x40's....do you like the cross hair on it? I have one and it is just great for hunting but I've tried it on my .243 for precise target shooting and found the cross hair is just a bit thick. It's nothing like my Leupolds cross hair.

    I have not had any problems with getting good accuracy with them Mailman. Usually my problem is more about holding study than the crosshairs. LOL

    I don't have any buckmasters, but the two ProStaffs, on muzzleloaders, and the Titanium on my 25-06 all do quite well...

    WOW!!! $491 THATS CHEAP!:dancin:
    I wish Great Guns had a webpage..regardless I think you have found gun heaven in Kearny.

    I have a friend with a Nikon & several of my friends have the $200 Leupold's.. I myself have a Simmon's 44 mag but what I was getting at was the fact that the L's cross hairs for late dusk shooting can disappear. I'll take the thicker Xhairs for hunting purposes

    I have heard by several people now, that Great Guns is one of the best places to find a good deal on a gun. They have a pretty nice selection of rifles, shotguns, handguns, ammo and accesories. They told me, if they do not have what you are looking for, there is a good chance they can get it for you through their suppliers.
