Range Finders

I went with a Leica 1000r after my Nikons crashed. I despise carrying binoculars so I figured I would get a rangefinder with good glass to use as a monocular. So far I haven't been disappointed

From what I've been told by people that have them is 16-17 hwy. The older ones were 12-13. I only get 19 from my Tacoma so I figured a lot more room and more power is worth the trade off for a few mpg
