I hear it all the time that not everyone can afford a swarovski or a zeiss, but im here to say yes u can save a lil every payday, stay home an fart around instead of goin somewhere, eat out a lil less, it adds up quick. Thats mho not to offend anyone.
I really wasn't endorsing the centerpoint at all. I have one...but only rated it as 'good'. I never go past 10x on mine. But for $69 including rings it was hard to pass up. I would recommend the Bushnell Banner 4-12x40 as a better entry level choice. Obviously those that can afford better glass have more options. Not everyone can afford to drop $250 on glass and need to find something below $100. Everyone has their opinions and priorities.

Very wrong everyone can save up for a quality scope, if not you are living above your means PERIOD, its just we as gun nuts usually think we MUST GET ONE NOW NOW NOW!!!!! But if the centerpoint works for you roll with it I guess??

The only dislike I have about the centerpoint is the rings I had to take a par of vise grips and break one of the rings off but they are good starter till you get a better scope

Wow...totally missed my point. Not everyone shares the same priorities in life. Using cars as an example...you feel that everyone should be able to save enough money to drive a Cadillac. If you cannot afford a Cadillac you are living beyond your means PERIOD. Some folks are happy driving a Kia...not as nice as a Cadillac, but they can afford it along with food and utilities, and it gets the job done. I was simply giving the OP some constructive information based on my personal experience. So many of these threads get derailed....

Mulie isn't talking about a $30000 difference like your automobile savings. He is talking about another $100-300 and you have a quality scope. Take a look at vortex optics. US made and a no BS lifetime warranty. You dont need any more than 9x and personally a 1-4 or 2.5-7 would be my choice . 3-9 Bushnell banner or trophy xlt would be a decent cheaper choice or the vortex crossfire or viper
