The name’s Douglas…Richard Douglas.

I consider myself the ‘James Bond’ of scopes.

My mission?

To become your go-to source for honest, unbiased, hand-tested scope reviews. (That’s a mouthful).

But I wasn’t always like this. It started when…

I Needed To Find A Scope

I couldn’t find the ‘best’ scope.

Everyone contradicted each other. The majority were just trying to ‘sell’ me on something.

Soon, it became very clear the common man’s interest — folks like you and I — weren’t being represented.

So, I did my own research.

I read up every gun forum, Youtube scope review, Amazon review and scope manufacturer’s page, looking for the best scope for my personal needs.

But here’s the problem: there were too many ‘good’ scopes.

How do I find the best?

I didn’t know. So, I did the dumbest thing ever and…

Bought and Hand-Tested Each Scope

It took a while. It wasn’t cheap either.

Each scope, on average, cost me more than $200 (my pocket’s still hurting to this day).

However, it was worth every penny…because I finally found the best scope for me.

I was relieved.

I told all my shooting buddies about my discoveries. It helped them. It wasn’t long until I became the ‘go-to’ scopes guy.

After a bit of urging from friends, I decided to make Scopes Field to help other cost-conscious folks (like myself) find their very best scope the first time around.

So far, I’ve helped so many people that I’ve been featured on sites like:

Who’s This Site For?

I made this site for myself.

I dreamed of a scope site made by the average hunter — someone who actually BOUGHT and HAND-TESTED each scope WITHOUT any bias.

That’s what I do.

Whether you’re an amateur or seasoned shooter, you’ll find the best scope for your rifle here. No need to look anywhere else — I’ve already done the hard work for you.

What will you learn?

Everything about scopes, whether you’re learning about:

  • Scope Basics
  • How to NOT get ripped off on a scope
  • What’s the best scope for your rifle

In short: you’ll find your own ‘prince charming’ scope here.

Why should you trust me?

Because I’m exactly like you.

At one point, I couldn’t find a good scope. Most scopes were blatant rip offs designed to cash in on my ignorance.

As a result, I wasted thousands of dollars on crappy scopes. Don’t be like me.

That’s why I built this site. I want to help you find the very best scope for your budget the first time around.


How do I test each scope?

By doing the research.

On average, I spend over 20+ hours researching each guide. I watch every Youtube review, Amazon review, manufacturer review and scope review online.

Then, I narrow my research down to only the very best scopes. After that, I order each of these scopes and hand-test them on the field for:

  • Glass Quality
  • Reticle Functionality
  • Eye Relief & Eyebox
  • Zeroing
  • Windage & Elevation Turrents
  • Durability
  • Parallax Adjustment
  • And more!

Finally, if a scope survives the ‘torture testing’, then (and ONLY then) do I personally recommend it on this site.

That’s why you can always expect an unbiased, honest review from me.

Not only do I test each scope but I NEVER accept ANY compensation or ‘review scopes’ from any manufacturer. I only buy each scope from my OWN pocket money.

In short: You can expect only unbiased, honest reviews funded by my OWN money here.

The result?

Only the best scopes for your rifle.

Whether you’re looking for the best scope for your AR-10 or .300 blackout, you’ll surely find the right scope for you here.

If you’re just getting started, I highly recommend starting with my ‘Finding the best scope’ guide. It’ll tell you everything you need to know about scopes in plain English.

And…If you’d like to ever get in touch for any reason, feel free to contact me here.

Thanks for visiting. Feel free to look around! I hope my guides help you as much as it’s helped me and thousands more!
