I see in my latest Heartland America catalog that they are offering a nitrogen filled 20x80 binocular for only $99!

I'm going to pass on this as I already learned my lesson after buying ( and returning) my Barska 15x70 bargin :roflmao:

The nitrogen probably comes from all the fertilizer they spilled into the barrels. :FarmerRon:

Bill, actually, I was thinking of you as I posted this, and figured that you would get a chuckle out of the "$100 miracle"
binoculars!

Keep on smiling!

That's a nice tactful way of describing what those binos are full of!

I one subscribed to a Civil War mag called North and South. I once saw a bino ad in there with claims so large and weird that it ALMOST caused me to file suit.

Cheers,
