“Dear Vortex Optics,
I am a police officer in the **** ****** area. I have purchased several items through the Law Enforcement purchase program, including a 10×36 Solo Monocular which I always carry in my squad car and use on a regular basis. Recently, the Solo monocular came in very handy.
In a section of our city we have had multiple break-ins of occupied houses, a suspect has hidden under beds while people were sleeping. The suspect had also grabbed people while hiding inside their houses. Needless to say, the residents of this neighborhood were becoming very uneasy of this situation.
Last month we received information from an investigator on surveillance that the suspect had walked into an entry way of a house. Those of us on patrol responded to the area and began to sneak in as best as we could. The neighborhood complex is new and homes are still being built. Because of this, the only way to approach the target house without losing sight of the suspect, was by crossing a large, grassy field with very little concealment. As myself and other officers crossed this field, I used my Vortex Monocular to keep an eye on entry way of the house to make sure we did not lose the suspect. Once we arrived at the entry way the suspect was found inside the house and was taken into custody.
The monocular worked very well for me that night and I continue to carry it in my squad on every shift. Even though it was dark out that night with only a few street lights, I was able to use the monocular just fine.”

Our friends at Tootabi Hunting Safaris shared their story with us from their recent Cape Buffalo hunt in the Lion-Dense Kalahari region of South Africa. Couple the threat of lions with the fact that the Cape Buffalo is regarded as one of the most aggressive of all African game and it’s easy to see why this is considered a very dangerous hunt.
Their Razor 1-6×24 with its true, daylight bright illumination, allowed for easy acquisition of the Cape Buffalo during the small window of time, mid-day, when there are less Lions to fend off that will compete for a meal. Ultimately they came away successful, shooting this beast with their 375 CZ Model 550 at 90 yards!
