Binoculars and/or monoculars

Recommended Posts

Just curious what kind of gear folks are using and looking for some pros and cons that others have found. I'm primarily interested in something under a hundred dollars as like everyone else, there's a lot to buy and maintain.

I think it's easier to pick out detail seeing in stereo so I like to keep a small pair of field binoculars handy for practical and tactical situations.  Hard to beat a good monocular spotting scope on a tripod at the range though so I have both.  😉

Thanks LFR. I have my dad's old spotting scope and it definitely has it's uses. Really thinking portability, mobility, and quick use out in the woods or in situations. Unfortunately so much comes from China. I'd love to find an old set at a yard sale or something instead of supporting our enemies.

Unfortunately you aren't going to find any binoculars made in the USA, there may be some assembled in the US but with parts from Japan, Hong Kong, Germany., Philippines.  Just need something that works decent and lasts and portable so you can have it on you when you need them.  I got a pair of these and they do just fine.

My dad had some Bushnell's way back in the 70s when I was a kid. Heavy but great viewing.
