I imagine the new Tasco will be made in the CCP.I remember Tasco - they were indeed bargain Japanese optics 50 years ago. Funny how things change, Japanese optics were considered sort of second-rate like many other of their products. Now optics from Japan are among the best of the best. Some could make a good argument that German optics are a bit better but I suspect it's a tossup. The Vortex Razor scope is made in Japan, their next most expensive scope is made in the USA. All of their others are Chinese.
Another vote for a good bipod and push forward to load the bi-pod legs (like Mike said.)
I'll likely use a couple of bags for the Benjamin to stabilize it better.
