I'm not looking for optics recommendations as I already know what I want. I'd like to know a good place on the internet that sells scopes. In particular the Shephard P1A. Impact guns has them (not in stock) on sale for $509. A pretty good price even for a back-ordered product. I'd prefer it a little faster if possible (without the full retail pop). If I don't find a better price (comparable price, faster timing) then I'll go with them, even if I do have to jump through a couple of extra hoops. Anybody else seen this puppy on sale anywhere? I don't expect many replies, but thanks for reading this anyway!

Don't know if they carry Shepard, but try: [url]www.swfa.com[/url] or www.riflescopes.com--same place.

Thanks AFARR. Didn't have my particular scope but that's the kind of site I'm looking for. Decent prices there. Wish they carried it!

Stealth, If you decide you want an IOR-Valdata, I can put you in touch with someone with very good prices on another board. AFARR PS--try out SWFA's bargain (clearance, used, demo, etc) board: [url]www.samplelist.com[/url]

Didn't SWFA used to have a page that had specials for AR5.com members and those of a couple of other boards? I lost the link and haven't seen it posted in a while.

There is a gentleman who goes by the handle of AntiqueDr on the Gunbroker forums who is a dealer for Shephard scopes cpermd

I think we all kinda have to lean toward SWFA, they just treat you right. They run a model business and if you want that particular scope send them an email and I'm sure they will do whatever possible to help you find it at a better price than anyone else. [):)] NSF

I have one in stock $530 shipped.

Thanks for the input folks. Not seeing it listed at these places though. Think I'll make some calls, and see if they have them and just not listed on the net. Thanks again!

Thank YOU 1GUNRUNNER! I've already got it mounted and this weekend I'll be shooting. Woo Hoo! Guess I'll find out how well the rangefinding reticle actually works. Great shop you've got there! My kind of place. I'll be doing more business as I get more money. Think I'll pick up those rings next month and maybe order a jewell trigger for a Rem 700. Anyway, just wanted to say I appreciated doing business with ya!
