So I've been wondering as of late, why aren't fixed power scopes that popular anymore? I just bought a Leupold FXIII 6x that is fantastic. And it seems that if I have trouble with a scope, it will be a variable (maybe that's just my bad luck) or else I end up shooting the thing on the same power anyways and not using any of the variable powers. When I was growing up in Montana I had a fixed power and never had any problems at any range, and then I grew up (sort of) and could by anything I wanted and started buying big expensive variables, and now I'm going back to fixed scopes again. At my local gun shop you can't buy a fixed scope, and it just seems sort of strange to me. Does anybody else shoot fixed power scopes out there?
