    Looks like it needs batteries. I won't take anything like that out in the field if it needs batteries. When things get tough, batteries are dead.

    I haven't used a scope in 45 years or so. I like open iron sights as I'm far sighted and a scope makes me want to focus on it and I feel like I'm getting my eyes sucked out. Over open sights, I've hit a deer target right in the heart once I figured in wind and distance at 200 yards. Then again, I shot a dragon fly out of the air at 30 feet. Give me some height and I don't even use binoculars. I can't see what's in front of my face, but I read railcars at 1/4 mile or more.

    I have a 3X optic on my AR that takes a battery. It has a reticle that illuminates red or green with 5 brightness levels for each. It's good for <100 yards. It works very well in low-light environments.

    $699...seems to do a lot for the money. Like the RAV recording aspect

    A 3-12x56 IR scope on my Savage 64...picked the scope up cheap and figured might as well slap it on the .22
    pictured in the Plano case my wife found for $6.
    All into this rifle, including purchase price, just under $300
    Squirrels, cans and rabbits beware!

    from what I read it has automatic bullet drop and windage adjustment and it can be used in night and day I would like to try that scope.

    Its illegal to hunt at night in my state .So a 4X power sight or "iron sight' work for me.
