When buying scopes do a little research and check the reviews......Establish what you want the scope to do for you then buy accordingly......I would rather toss a couple of cheap scopes than have a high dollar scope that is only good for one thing and has to be pampered.
We all have different experiences in life, and we make our decisions based on those experiences. That's why there are so many choices available.
If you have good luck with low cost scopes, more power to you. I wish I could find a lower cost one that I wouldn't regret buying, but so far, I haven't.
