Optics Planet.  They usually have a 10% coupon, free shipping, and no sales tax.

My last two came from a member on here but the last new ones I bought were from Optics Planet. No issues and a good price at the time.

Volunteer to become a Hunter Ed instructor!!!  :tup:

Many companies (Leupold/Burris/Vortex/etc.) give amazing discounts to active instructors.

Hunters get a benefit too as, with more instructors, more classes can be offered.

Just sayin'...

 :)ordered a VX3i  4.5X14X40, 30mm tube, side focus. wanted a 1 inch tube but apparently Leupold no longer offers that in this specific scope. Got scope rings too, saved 10% due to Labor Day.
Thanks

I think I can pick those up for $394ish.  At least that is what 170699 goes for...  Hope you didn't get too beat up on the price.

It might be a little late for this suggestion, but I've had good luck using Predator Optics and will use them again.
If you've ever had a wild game roast in your airport carry-on, you might be a redneck.

Just bought a Leupold vari x 3 from them.  Tough to beat their price and service.

Best prices I've found are on eBay.

Watch out on eBay as their are many fake Leupolds on their.  I purchased one off of ebay and had to send it in for repair and was notified it was a fake.

Dang.  I wondered about that.  Keep passing that experience on for sure helping others.  That sucks feel for you.

Worth a phone call to optics planet - sometimes they will give another break over phone vs just online.
