Thumbs down Chinese counterfeits of hunting gear

Beware of this and other stuff. Buy from a place you know and trust:

It's amazing how they infiltrate everything! Currently, there is an investigation into honey fraud, of all things! It seems the honey coming out of China is cut with high fructose corn syrup. It retains most of the honey flavor, but is not 100%. It's a bad thing, because it is sold cheaply (because it's more corn syrup than honey) and it undercuts honest hardworking American beekeepers AND drives the price of OUR honey down! Those dirty rats!!

I wonder if they have done a knocked off of the range finders? You see such a jump in prices on some websites for some models that it makes you wonder.
