Yes I said it…..Unbelievable!!! So there we were, my Husband and I, on our way to Alabama Precision PRS match in Childersburg Alabama. Just as we were getting into Sylacauga Alabama, smoke started coming out from under the bed of the truck. My Husband thought it might have been oil burning. We were at a red light and the car next to us informed us that something was very wrong with our truck. We both turned to look and black smoke was rolling out heavily from under the bed of the truck. Jim pulled over to access what was going on and started screaming “Get out! The truck is on fire!!” Jim was tossing all his gear and guns in low lying bushes nearby and I was grabbing my gear and putting it in a pile away from the truck. During all this madness, unknowing to us, a pair of my Bushnell Legend binoculars fell out of my husbands bag into the bushes. These were the Bushnell Legend Ultra HD 8×36 camoflauge binoculars. The fire was put out with no damage to the truck (spare tire caught fire).
Fast forward two months, countless rain storms and high temperatures, once again we were on a drive to a one day match back in Birmingham Alabama, I pulled in to Sylacauga to the area that my husband tossed all his stuff. You see, he lost 3 boxes of 6.5 Creedmoor loaded ammunition that fateful day. Jim jumps out and started looking through the bushes and found two boxes of ammo. I thought it was funny so I did I post about it on my Facebook page. That evening, one of the firemen (Tim E.) from the Sylacauga fire department saw my post. That same evening when Tim got off work, he went to the location of the truck fire and found the other box of ammo along with my Bushnell Legends. Now, you are probably wondering why I wasn’t looking for these earlier. I upgraded to the Bushnell Legend L Series. Jim was using my older ones, which is why those fell out of his bag.
Tim E. got in touch with me that evening to let me know he found the other box of ammo along with the Bushnell Legends. On our way home, we stopped by the Sylacauga Fire station to retrieve our lost belongings. Tim was telling us that he and few others were surprised that even though the binoculars had been out in the weather for so long, there was no moisture on the inside of the tubes, they still focused and the eyepieces adjusted properly. Essentially, they were surprised that they were still in working order!
When I tell people that I stand behind Bushnell and their products, I’m not just saying it, I really mean it. The Bushnell Legend binoculars are lightweight yet rugged with fully multicoated ED glass lenses, RainGuard Water repellent coating, waterproof, and fogproof.
The Bushnell Legend family binoculars are some of the best binoculars on the market. I use them consistently during my shooting competitions to spot targets, etc. Here are some features of the Bushnell Legend L series (I am in love with mine):
*Fully Multicoated Optics
*Phase 3 Prism Coating
*ED Prime Glass
*Locking Diopter Adjustment
*Waterproof and fogproof
So if you are looking for a great pair of binoculars, look for the Bushnell Legend Series family. I promise you, you cannot go wrong with them. www.bushnell.com
