    Anyone know if Optics Planet has any sort of black Friday or cyber Monday sales?
    I've had a $700 scope in my cart for months and itd be nice to get a generous % off of the price. I'd definitely pull the trigger.
    TIA

    I had problems with Optics Planet being a slow shipper. Several people I shoot with also reported their being very slow shippers. I'll not order anything from them again. This way of doing business flunks the smell test.

    I was burnt twice with Optics Planet selling stuff that they didn't actually have "In Stock" when I ordered it.
    I will not buy from them after that.

    Diesel3, What scope are you wanting to buy?

    I accused Optics Planet in an email of advertising stuff not in stock. Get enough orders to make an order. Those things work like Ponzi schemes. They got use of your money for how long?

    I’ve placed one order there for a few things and they all had different ship dates so I canceled the ones that were going to take for ever. Well like 2 months later I get a stock in the mail from them that I don’t remember ordering. Went back to their site and there’s no purchase history of it. No packing slip/receipt in the package. I’ve sent probably a dozen emails with no response.

    Was looking to purchase this one for target shooting. Done quite a bit of research and asking questions here and this is what I've come up with. I dont hunt, strictly target shooting.
    Thoughts and other comparable options welcome

    That is a hunting style scope, not a target scope. Without knowing the intended target ranges you intend to shoot, I'd suggest one of these.

    The Bushnell DMR II is a steal for this price -

    The Sightron S-Tac is also a great scope. While not as good as the Sightron SIII scopes, they are very good scopes, and Sightron's warranty & CS is top notch.
    I own 4 Sightron SIII scopes and a SII.

    The Athlon Ares BTR is also a very nice scope. I have one in 4.5-27x, as well as an Athlon Midas BTR and Cronus. Athlon makes some very good scopes.

    You should be very happy with that scope.
