:grin: My wife did such an awesome thing today, I almost shed a tear..

Well, she has a Ruger 308 with a VXII 2x7 on it. While it shoots pretty well, I hate the scope. The friction adjustments just stink, you can't even begin to dial it accurately and the optics are less than awesome. It all seemed good till I started into the Minox's.. She really wants to get out with me for elk hunting next year and I told her it would be great to get a proper scope on that rifle so we could practice a little further out with it, plus the extra magnification would really pay off and the clarity would be much nicer. Well, I emailed her the Minox's on Sample List and said she should look at the 3x9 or 2-10's as they were a screaming deal and would be a nice optic on her 308..

I wanted her to pick up one, on her own and be part of the decision process. Well, as it turns out, she sends me back an email saying I spoiled her surprise!.. I scroll down and she had ordered TWO 2x10-40mm ZA5's!!!! Yee haw! How is that! Man, I said she didn't ruin the surprise at all, she surprised the CRAP outta me. She knew how much I wanted a 2-10 as well and grabbed an extra one. Man, what a wife, putting up with me, deployments, kids, ect, and still pulls that off! MAN! I am one lucky man.. Sorry, had to share it with you all. :lol:

Scotty,

Your wife is absolutely a keeper my friend! Both of you are a perfect match and we can all say the same thing about you that you said about your Mrs. Very cool stuff bud and I cannot wait for you to get off this deployment and spend some quality time with your family. You've more than earned it my friend! Congrats to both of you!

Scotty, I knew that she had to be a great lady as I was taught a long time ago that behind every good man there is a great women :shock:

That is so cool Scotty. If someday I can find a lady that's half that good I'll be happy as a pig knee deep in slop.

I am pretty excited to give them a whirl. It is nice to have a couple of scopes ready for the Fall. The 300WSM is in need of a good set of optics..
