    Binoculars for the range

    I need binoculars for general target monitoring from a max of maybe 50 yds. What's a decent but relatively inexpensive model? I don't know what magnification I would need.

    Cabelas brand, or Leupold. In my range bag I carry Leicas. Best money I ever spent.

    I would give serious consideration to a small pair of binoculars. Big, heavy 10 X 50s will sure show you the holes in a target.

    But they will not get used much on a vacation, or out hunting. Small ones get taken everywhere.

    Any of the 10 power compact would work fine. No need to spend a great deal for your use. Bushnell has some good inexpensive models you can purchase in Walmart or local camping store. Good luck, Be Safe

    I carry a pair of Leica's as well. Very versatile and use the one pair for many applications. While a bit pricey, they are a good value considering how often I use them.

    I have a pair of small ones in my range bag...I won them as a door prize in a golf tournament.

    There are some good Monoculars being sold. (Monocular = Half a Binocular AKA One Eye As VS Two Eyes) that are quite inexpensive if you really want to save some money.
