Ventures abound. Getting out there to enjoy a favorite activity is high on everyones list. Folks can certainly have different specific interests, but just being outdoors is what binds us all together. Our activities can also vary in length from a short trek hiking or attending a birding festival to a backpacking adventure in a National Park that takes us off the beaten path to sights rarely seen to a week long hunting excursion. That same love for the outdoors should also drive us to pursue the protection and conservation of those same outdoor resources that this great nation offers us. Having these natural resources requires a certain commitment from each of us so that they are available to our grandchildren's children.

Binoculars are an essential tool for all outdoor enthusiasts. Prices can vary widely. Your expectations of the optics performance will most likely drive your purchasing decision. Binoculars, like other optics provides a wide range of features. Some folks like porro prism and others prefer roof prism binoculars. For any outdoors person, the twilight periods before sunrise and after sunset can be critical time for viewing. Do not be misled by the twilight factor of a particular binocular. The twilight factor is a function of the magnification and objective size. So two different brands can tout the same twilight factor yet one can outperform the other significantly during this critical period. Having binoculars with quality glass prisms and lenses which are coated with quality coatings will insure that your pair will provide great light transmission; coatings are what really make a difference during twilight.
Only high quality rifle scopes will handle the recoil that your rifle dishes out all the while maintaining your site-in adjustments. If you are frustrated from having to frequently resight your scope then it is time for you to upgrade. All scope manufacturers provide a variety of reticles that you can select from. Duplex reticles which are the standard cross hairs to bullet drop compensating reticles that account for long distance shots as well as adjusting for cross winds, there is a rifle scope and reticle that will meet your needs at RCS Optics. Scopes, particularly rifle scopes from Zeiss, Leupold, Burris, Trijicon, Redfield, Weaver, and Bushnell are just a few of the brands that we carry. Come back often as we frequently are adding new items. Our latest addition is Sig Sauer hunting and tactical scopes. Of all the brands that we carry, Leupold has an extremely wide variety of both scopes and reticle options. There is a Leupold rifle scope that will fit your needs whether you hunt or competition shoot. Along with that variety comes a price point that will be easy on the budget.
Range finders are becoming a common tool as experienced hunters know the value of accurate and timely distance measurements and hold over values. Every shot counts. Seconds count too! You may not want to have to do mental gymnastics to figure out the range or holdover so be sure that your arsenal includes the tools you need to provide that critical information. Rangefinders available in a monocular format include hand held rangefinders, however Zeiss has an awesome range finding binocular, the Zeiss Victory RF.
For the elite marksman whose hunting style frequently calls for shots up to 1,000 yards and does not want to have to monkey around with a separate range finder, RCS Optics recommends the Zeiss Victory Diarange rifle scope. When targets are generally below the 500-600 yard range, then the Burris Eliminator is another viable option. Different applications, different products. Both of these rifle scopes have a laser range finder built into the scope so you don't need one more thing to pack.
