Sorry to hear about life getting in the way. With regards to technology in this game, it's become like every other hobby. Therefore, it has become an arms and money race. No longer are the days of M40A1s/M24 with BDL magboxes and Leupolds. Chassis are all the rage which I can't get behind.Cool to see new technology, but sad to see some of my brand new stuff is obsolete now.
been there, done that man! i'm still playing catch up with the advances. I'm down on the kenai if you ever come this way. I'm good for some phucked up stories that'll make you laugh at least. Congrats on the freedom!Divorce started it, moved around a bit, no handy access to internet for a while, then other hobbies, Facebook and YouTube get most of my computer time lately. You were probably hoping I had a cool story about being abducted by space aliens, or being in a Mexican prison all this time. I have been digging around in some of my shooting, and reloading stuff lately, don't even remember what all I have. Starting to get the shooting itch again. Have a big house now, plenty of room to unpack stuff, set up the reloading operation again, etc. Cool to see new technology, but sad to see some of my brand new stuff is obsolete now.
I think more than anything, Leupold rested on their laurels...while everyone else developed better equipment. Sig, Bushnell, SWFA just to name a few, have eaten Leupy's lunch for a while. Nightforce and Kahles have taken the high end and tactical market from them as well.I been gone about 10 years. When I left Leupold was considered solid equipment, now a quick glance at topics shows they have fallen. Did they stop making good scopes, or did something way better come along ?
