No, I can't believe that! :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

People think I'm paranoid because I own guns.
If I own guns, what do I have to be paranoid about?

Calling an illegal alien an "undocumented immigrant"
is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensed pharmacist ".

Well, I worked downtown SF for about 4 years.......They have a REALLY BIG fudge factory down by Pier 39...... They never seem to have a hard time filling jobs for "fudge packers". Or even people to drive the fork lifts, etc. The help wanted ads in the paper were really a hoot to read - better than the "funnies".. :gay: :gay:

at current i own both leupold mark 4s and nightforce scopes.
when i picked up my 98 i chose the nightforce simply because it has a higher magnification. both scopes are exceptional quality. the leupold seems more rugged but the nightforce is outstanding with its features.

so depends on what range you are looking to shoot it at i guess.

just to change the subject. what is the current status on the m98 bravo over there in the states?
i live in australia, currently 3 m98s and 1 416 barrett have been imported as well as a few bors systems.
me and my friend own 2 of the 98s and the others are still for sale. i am hearing all these stories of 8-12 month waiting lists for the 98 bravos over there in the states? im still unsure as to how we managed to get some imported as there is a huge shortage over there in the states?

i am very impressed with the product, when compared to Trgs and AIs it is something special.
i am about to head off to the range right now to shoot it for the first time. will get back to you with results shortly. :headbang:

I am picking up my new 98B tomorrow - I have purchased the Nightforce 5.5-22x NXS 56mm - I am also looking at adding the BORS Optics as well - I did a lot of research into both this weapon and the optics for it - I spent a load of time reading and researching both the 98B and the Nightforce scopes and made the decision to go with this set up - With the addition of the BORS I can stay with minimal ballistic software for the windage and coriolis effect that the BORS does not adjust for

I ended up going with the NF 8-32x56 with the Barrett 40 degree MOA rings. LOVE IT !!!
Forgot to mention I got the NP-R2 reticle. I am not sure but the NP-R1 may be a better choice for "way out there" it was just a little too busy at 500 yards or less.
