hmm since my budget is tight i guess my next best course of action is to just meet up some of u guys during ur sessions and check things out, while waiting out a few more paychecks down the months before getting my first real serious scope. lolx.

thanks acc, menglee for your valuable advice.

hi acc,

yupz i do check out the BnS daily...so far i didnt hit on any that appeals to me. Though im a beginner, i would really like an entry-level scope that does the job well, not just a "make do bcos it's cheap" model.

Anyway thanks for the advice! I will keep my eyes peeled.
