Tactical Range Scope for the field – Vortex

dsc_0005Do you even know what a “Tactical Range Scope” is?  Well check this article out!!

It was my turn out on perimeter watch.  Lately it has been pretty boring.  Most of the time overwatch is boring.  You have to just rough it sometimes.  So, I take up watch inside of a tree for concealment.  Yes their is a difference between cover and concealment and we can talk about that one later.  With my new Tactical Range Scope I got from Vortex optics!  Man, one thing about Vortex is that every optic you get from them is crystal clear!  I love Vortex!


Anyways, just as the sun started to go down behind me, I thought I saw a flash.  You know a flash from something the sun hit that was metal.  I looked through the Tactical ret_mon_recon-rtscope again in the same area I saw the flash.  There it was, a guy with a gun.  I knew it.  I adjusted the scope to where I could see the whites of his eyes!  LOL…. and used the little Hashmarked ranging off to the side in the scope to quickly find the yards out they were.  The guy was 500 yards out!  Man that was quick.

I immediately took a knee again after radio in their position.  Even though I couldn’t believe how clear it was, I maintained eye contact with them and called in the range as they continued to come closer.  Where would I be without Vortex?

dsc_0012See, Vortex makes a number of different items, but I can tell you by FIELD experience, there is nothing that compares to their scopes.  Check out what they had to say about this Tactical Range Scope:



The Recon R/T is a unique, advanced tactical piece of equipment that is unlike any other in the field—the first truly compact, full-featured spotting scope developed especially for field surveillance and range estimating. The quick-handling, lightweight design features brilliant optical performance using Vortex premium XD™ glass and XR™ lens coatings. The versatile attachment clip secures the Recon R/T to any belt or strap for rapid deployment. The R/T ranging reticle using mrad-based subtensions also includes a secondary quick-ranging system with silhouettes.



XD™ Lens Elements Extra-low dispersion (XD) glass increases resolution and color fidelity, resulting in crisp, sharp images.
XR™ Fully Multi-Coated Proprietary coatings increase light transmission with multiple anti-reflective coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces.
Phase Correction Coating on roof prism models enhances resolution and contrast.


Roof Prism Valued for greater durability and a more compact size.
Waterproof O-ring seals prevent moisture, dust and debris from penetrating the monocular for reliable performance in all environments.
Fogproof Argon gas purging prevents internal fogging over a wide range of temperatures.
ArmorTek Ultra-hard, scratch-resistant coating protects exterior lenses from scratches, oil and dirt.
Rubber Armor Provides a secure, non-slip grip, and durable external protection.


Adjustable Eyecup

Folds up and down for comfortable viewing with or without eyeglasses. Flared to eliminate stray light and rotatable for a custom fit.

Main Focus

Allows for sharp image acquisition at distances from as close as 12 feet to infinity.

Fine Focus

Utility Clip

The versatile, multi-position utility clip allows for multiple attachment points and quick attachment to pocket edges, equipment or vests

I am telling you what!  This is one item that every field unit needs!  I am not just talking about Military units either.  YOU Need to head over to Vortex and pick this scope up!  This Tactical scope will help you range the target so fast, you will not know what happen! Swing over now!
