    Walmart carries them. The one by me had a Simmons 20-60x60 for $60 the other day. I probably need to go back and grab it since I'm seeing it online everywhere for $120-140.

    They also carry some of the entry Nikon and Leupold ones as well.

    They rent the Simmons at the rifle range I frequent.

    It's pretty solid. Does that one come with that little stubby metal tripod?

    The one in his link comes with a tripod, hard shell aluminum case, and a tripod case.

    If it's 60 bucks at walmart it sounds like a hell of a deal.

    Well crap ... the nice Simmons ProSport 20-60x60mm kit with hard case was on closeout. The one I had seen was the last one, and of course it was gone today.

    They carry the Simmons Blazer 20-60x60mm with soft case and tripod (up to 48" tall) for $59. Since it's the Blazer, it's more of their 'value-line'. Not nearly as good of a deal as the ProSport, but it's cheap and probably available at your nearest wallyworld.

    They also had a Remington 20x50mm with soft case and little table-top tripod for $44.

    After that it was the usual Nikon ProStaff and Leupold $200+ models.

    There are something like 4 walmarts around here. I'm going to check them all for the prosport. if not I might just go with the blazer. I had a simmons scope on one of my 10/22s and was pretty happy with it.
