Was wondering what folks here were using for longer distance seeing? In other words, binoculars, monocular, telescopes, etc?? While you could use a rifle scope, it's also possible that not everyone plans on having a rifle with them 24/7, or your survival rifle is a .22LR, which may only have a 1-4 power scope on it (good out to 100 yards or so, less useful for, say, a half mile away). I received an e-mail, yesterday, from MidwayUSA, where they're offering some freebies on binocular purchases, and it made me think about the possible requirement for such a thing, especially as I'm getting older, and my eyes aren't quite as sharp as they used to be! The knock, of course, being that you have to weigh the power of your "long eyes" against the extra weight that you're carrying. So while a nice pair of 10 x 50 Bushnell binoculars might be nice to have, are they worth the extra almost 2 pounds of weight in your pack, or hanging around your neck?? Would love to know your thoughts, and what you're using, if anything. Thanks!
