    Midway is having 20% off sale Viking Solutions steel target systems. Picked up a combo, AR-500, 8 and 10 inch gongs complete with separate chains, stands, and bolts for $88 last week. Took them out this weekend. Easy 10 second range setup and take down. Each took about 50, xm193, and 145 grn 7.62 NATO rounds like a champ at 150 yards. Gong surfaces still as smooth as glass. Same set is selling for $140 at optics planet.

    thats fine.
    As for trying one....its about as good as a cheap celstron can be.
    Its a small light weight scope to leave in your truck or camper to use when bringing out the big nice scope is just not needed.
    Its 45' eye piece and rotating ring along with decent eye relief at $25 is fine by me. Looks like they get $60-$90 normally. My last cheap scope Meade compact I bought at Job Lot for $29 about 10 years ago did well by me for its end use and recently the mounting base on the scope itself fell apart.

    The only thing I see being a down side on the Celestron is the mount/ring base on the scope. It looks a bit small and thin.
    Good thing is Celestrons Life Time Warranty

    I have a few Celestron products
    i have the 27x Long Eye Relief version of this
    Regal M2 80ED Spotting Scope | Celestron - Telescopes, Telescope Accessories, Outdoor and Scientific Products
    Its a very nice scope.
    Also have this lower end star gazer. Im still amazed at how well it works. Watching jupiters moons and some good detail of our moon.

    Probably easier for them to say NO to all MA orders to affirm compliance to the Massachusetts overlords.

    Or... and I've seen similar... their order systems are not setup in a way to disallow orders of certain products to certain geographies. Some of these companies run on old, creaky software that is not very flexible nor easily maintainable.

    I got this code in my email for bravo concealment a few days ago, good for one week from when I got it. Just used it so it may or may not work for others:

    2629-6HB5-VR6B

    If you’ve never tried bravo concealment I highly recommend them. Their selection is a bit limited but good quality for very reasonable prices. They’re having some specials now too where everything is already 10% off and you get a free magazine pouch with every holster.

    Be aware that they will spam the everloving shit out of your email after you order from them.

    FYI Brownells current codes are NA3 ($30 off $250) and NA4 ($45 off $375). Slightly better than the 10% discount norm, depending on how much you spend.

    They show both in the article but it's the WPA which is still a good deal but nowhere near as good as if it was the gold.

    Mine too at that price. I was pissed since living where I do Brownells wouldn't ship it to me but it turns out I'm not missing out as much as I thought I was since it's not the gold.

    FWIW, I'm sure there are plenty of us that would accept PSA or Brownells shipments at our NH addresses for a 6 pack ;)

    Same here... was about to see if my FFL would buy some for me. At that price for the Gold I'd have no problem throwing the extra $$ at my FFL for it and still come out on top. I think Targetsports is getting $300 for 1k rounds right now of Wolf Gold. Little bit less if you're prime.

    Brownells will ship ammo to MA. I’ll still buy from TSUSA because they were the first to FU the state.

    $247.94 for 1000 rounds of Wolf Gold at Targetsports with Prime. A little more than "little bit less!" Under 25 cents per round.
