Have you found a source for some great bargains on rangefinders?

I've had all the Bushnell Series, and they're great, as is Nikon. Stay away from the Leica - they are overpriced and have some annoying glitches- they definitely are Johnny-come-latelys in the budget rangefinder game. I use the Yardage Pro 1000, and that's what I'd recommend, even if your dad doesn't shoot all that far. The reason is that it is more likely to give a reading under adverse condtions such as bright sunlight or nonreflctive targets than the models rated for lower yardage; I don't know if it's because it has a stonger laser, or what, but unless price is an issue, consider it. Next is the small and very sexy Nikon 800 - a very nice size. As far as source, check out [url]http://www.swfa.com[/url]. Merry Christmas!
