Review: Armadillo LT Gaiters

Leupold, rangefinder, Outside Bozeman
Mike England
For a compact rangefinder that reaches out past 1,000 yards and doesn’t require two hours of prep time with the manual, check out the Leupold RX-1200i TBR/W. That’s a lot of letters and numbers, for sure, but the name is as arcane as this product gets. Read more >>
