Some used scopes were delivered by a certain unnamed optics dealer... (wink, wink)... We had hoped for more, but we have what we have...

These scopes will be given to kids, absolutely free, and I pay postage. If you are a kid, or know a kid that needs a scope have them contact me by PM or email.

All I want is a reason why you think I should send you a scope... This is not going to be solely needs-based, nor an English 101 essay-based test. Just send me a brief description of what the scope is needed for, or why it is needed, or any other reason why I should send you a scope. It might also allow me to pick a better scope for your purposes.

This is not first-come, first-served, but rather you have to make me think I want to send you a scope.

I apologize in advance for not having more scopes and probably do not have enough for all that request one, but 10 scopes will be given away.

Feel free to ask questions here, but you do not gain a thing by posting here... Only the PM or email matters and it will be 100% confidential unless you want to post later about the scope you got.

Again, we had hoped for more, but we have what we have.

As his first job, my 14 year old worked as a trap boy at a local gun club this past summer and saved nearly everything he earned which I have to admit somewhat surprised me. After borrowing his grandfather's rifle for his hunt he decided to spend his money and purchased a .270 rifle of his very own. Now he is saving up to purchase a scope so he can actually shoot it as it didn't come with sights.

I will tell him about your generous offer and see what he comes up with.

Quite a gesture on your part.

I am nothing more than the messenger... the real good guy is the nameless scope provider/retailer/all around good guy... And I get to make kids happy.

All of the kids that have responded will get scopes... Some have already gotten them, but the rest will start receiving them in the next few days.
thanks for your patience!

If no one has contacted you about this please let me know and I will give you an address of one that has contacted me...

It will help a great deal and I will explain why by PM... If the scope is spoken for all I can say is thank you for supporting the good idea!
thanks again!

I ask to buy a scope for a young man with a dead beat dad and a forum member offered to him for free. There are truly some great guys on this forum. I applaud you all for having such a big heart.

Art, there's a pretty excited 13 yr old in Northern Mn right now. He sent me a txt message today, said he heard from you in a PM.

Big thanks to you and your optics dealer.

Happy to hear it! There is just one box left unaccounted for but there have been well over 30 scopes arriving in kid hands... and several came from members that just sent them on and did not want to be named.

Thanks to all, especially that GR8, humble scope guy that does not want to be mentioned.

There was a pair of them in the box that came to my boy.

My daughter immediately called dibs on whichever one he wasn't going to use on his 9422M. She's going to put it on her pink laminate 10/22.
