  • Side Parallax Adjustment
  • 3-15x Magnification Range
  • 42mm Objective
  • Mil-Quad Reticle

Bushnell LMSS 8-40×60 Spotting Scope First Look

Pre-Production LMSS at Rockcastle Shooting Center

The BBT (big, brown, truck) graced us with its presence yesterday and left a box from Bushnell Outdoor Products. Inside was a brand spanking new 8-40x60m Lightweight Modular Spotting Scope. I was so excited that I broke out the camera and actually shot an unboxing video.

We don’t usually do “unboxings” because I am dubious of their value to the consumer. When I “unbox” something, it’s pretty obvious that I have little experience with that actually product. This isn’t really true with the LMSS.

We got a chance to play with the pre-production version of the LMSS at a Bushnell hosted event at Rockcastle Shooting Center in Park City, Ky. I have used several different “tactical spotters” from several different manufacturers. This was the first I have seen in awhile that actually got me exited. You can take a look at our previous comments about it from the Rockcastle shoot here.

As soon as we get some time behind it and a some shots through it, we will run a full review. Everything about this scope screams “quality” and we can’t wait to field it.

The Thinking Rifleman: Profitable Strategies for the Military Sniper

LOGAR PROVINCE, Afghanistan -- Cpl. William Hopkins, a native of Clovis, Calif., a spotter with Company F, 2nd Aviation Assault Battalion, 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade's Pathfinders, takes aim on a target with the Barrett .50 Cal. while Sgt. Lucas Cordes, a native of Hillman, Mich., a sniper team leader with Co. F, 282 CAB, watches to see if he hits the target Jan. 26. They fired the rifle at a target while moving at different speeds in a UH-60 Blackhawk at an aerial weapons platform exercise.

by SGT Christopher Rance

Snipers are becoming an increasingly valued weapon in the mountains and deserts of Afghanistan. A definite renaissance
of sniping is being seen across the front lines of war. The sniper was such an effective tool in Iraq that the sniper’s tactical comeback in Afghanistan is being facilitated by the mounting concerns over the number of civilian casualties in Afghanistan caused by collateral damage from coalition air strikes. This has made the sniper the military’s most cost effective, discriminating fighting machine in the Global War on Terror.

Dianne Feinstein, although “disappointed” stated that she still intends to propose Continue reading The 2013 Assault Weapon Ban is not Dead!
