    You guys are always reviewing shit and talking about buying stuff on Amazon and just products in general.
    I would like to find a better pair of binoculars and get a tremendous deal on them, please advise.
    And please don't make a mockery of this.

    if you buy them at the right time of year, Amazon will give you 5% cash back (assuming you use one of their cards).

    Any Ideas, I need them soon. These pool parties the neighbors are having aren't going to last forever! It's a short season.

    Look for a pair of Military M19 binoculars. They show up on eBay once in a while. They're made by Bell and Howell and I think Vietnam era. The left reticle even has a rangefinding scale.
    I love mine.

    I did that with my M 19's on April fool's day to my kids a few years ago. Rubbed them with charcoal, set them by the front window and waited... kids were watching TV, I looked at the window and casually said "Is that a buck or a doe?" The fight was on for the binocs and they both got black eyes.
