Pawn shop in Shelbyville had one a week ago. Opticks were good. It did have some scratches.

The Whitetail Classic is still ok, I believe. I think it's still made in the Philippines.

Simmons had a fluke and made a run of scopes that weren't altogether crap, and they are hailed as a great scope. I would rather buy from a company with a good reputation.
