Hey--I'm back before anyone answered--saw in the optics forum a note about the Vortex Crossfire---I went up on their website & I think I have found my next scope. The Crossfire has a v-plex cross hair that is so close to a fine that I think it will do nicely. Am interested in the 3x9x40 for a Sportsman Warehouse price of $119.00. A bargain if it is as clear as the thread implied it was. Will be going to Boise in the next week & will check it out. I believe it will replace my old Weaver K-4 very nicely. I need the 6x setting because the old eyes are not as good as I wanted & I guess the warranty has expired. I will still appreciate any & all comments, recommendations, & critisizing of my pick. Options are still open. Thanks.
