I am on the Sportsmans Guide website at this very moment...getting ready to drop the dime on one of these range finders.

Leica 1200, for sure. Good optic, good performance, small size.

bought my Leupold today, very nice combo of binoc and range finder. Went to local football field and stood on 1 yard line and ranged a pylon on the other 1 yard line. Very accurate

The Bushnell. Nikon and Leica are all good.
You may not need the most expensive Bushnell, the 800 Compact I have is fantastic.

Well...the problem is...
Lecia, Avimo, and Leupold are not on the list list I posted

But, at least I didnt get the standard ARFCOM answer: "Get all of them"

I bought the Osprey Intl. (before I was advised to get the Bushnell)

I will give a range report when it comes.

I bought the Osprey, based on price, size, features, and the fact that I can make 4 payments (Sportsmans Guide buyers club)...
I also ordered a Leatherwood Uni-Dial 8.5-25 x 50 mm Tactical
scope for my PSS.

Sportsmans guide did not have Lecia, or Leupold range finders...thus, they were left off my list.

I will give a range report on the scope, and range finder when they arrive.

... most mid-range priced range finders perform about the same. One aspect of their use you need to be cognizant of; they seem to go through 9V batteries fast. Make sure you take along a couple spares each trip.
