    No kidding! :upeyes:

    Fox, it seems, went out of their way to kill it from the get-go! In my market, I wasn't even aware of it until it was gone! :steamed:

    Great stuff! :thumbsup:

    I can only speak to the 2 - 6 3200 pistol scope (NOT THE TROPHY series) with the FireFly feature. I've used them in handgun hunting on both T/C frames and Freedom Arms 83s in SSK TSOB mounts. You can't break them with 454, 500WE, 475 and 33806JDJ in my experience. Charge them with a small light and they are good for maybe 10 to 15 minutes right at the time in the evening when the rifle scopes have an advantage over the handgun scopes due to eye relief losses.

    I have one on a Rem 760 in .308 caliber. I love it! I use it in a treestand in the woods and the recticle really stands out. Mine is 3x9 power.

    My brother has one on his 300WSM. He loves it.

    I have the non-firefly version on my 300WSM, I love it. They have the Rainguard feature, which I value more than the firefly feature, as I typically hunt in crappy weather.
