You know someone is serious about shooting when the total cost of their spotting scopes are more than your car.

Yep it’s a 6 inch objective and 50x (crazy wide field of view)

the other is a WW2 rangefinder that goes out to 20,000 yards!

By the way, who can tell me how “Cheytac” is pronounced? I have always said “shay tac” (“shay” as in “Che Guevara”).

    Hi all. Per the owner of the CheyTac USA, in a conversation I had yesterday (I needed the correct pronunciation for a project I'm working on), the official correct pronunciation is SHY-tak.
