    Wondering if anyone at Leopold uses this site as a resource given they are a PDX based company?

    I know of at least one. I bought some Black Hills .223 Ammo from a Leupold empolyee on this site a while back. Won't say who it is unless he wants to identify himself.

    My wife's dad worked there for many years, like 15 years as an engineer. He said he hated to do the Shot Shows as hunters always asked him dopey questions about Leupold at his booth, like how to pronounce "Leupold". He admitted to me the European optics, primarily Austrians and Germans are better. Swarovski, Zeiss, Leica, Schmidt Bender ect, but not so much better to justify their higher prices. His favorite binoculars he always carries are the Swarovski 8-40, awesome! Nothing even close in clarity, nor nothing close to their $1,800 price tag.

    Yep.

    No factory store, people go there all the time asking for that, though.

    How long ago did he retire? Does he drive a 5 series? :thumbup:
