It's like the response I got yesterday from my nephew though. I told him I'd found a Evo-X for $300, and right away he says, "That's a lot of money for a crossbow scope"! I think that's pretty typical of the mentality out there towards xbow scopes. I'm not sure why, 'cause I like decent glass! I spent as much on my scope as I did on my rifle, but then I could make the 470 yds shot on my Stone ram! So it sure paid off!!!!
