New scope for my old rifle

Well Boys,
I picked me up a new scope for the ole 30-06 at the gunshow this weekend.
Got a Leupold VX II in 6-18x40 with an A/O and the long range reticle.Mounted it on the gun and will probably go shoot it in next weekend.I gave Dad my old
Vari X II 3-9X40 and he will probably come down and shoot it in to.We gonna take the shotguns to and let the daughter shoot her new 20ga.Should be fun.

Two great things,gunshows and the range.You lucky....

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
