I guess the good thing about it is if you spring for the one you really want, it should last many years and you don't really have to buy anything else unless you're one of those people who always wants to do more (and then it gets REALLY expensive). The $3,000 scopes are pretty nice for an amateur. But you also probably don't want to spend that kind of money right off the bat if you haven't really delved too deeply into the hobby. You might change your mind about what you want so it would probably be better to find someone who is already into it and will let you tag along and use their equipment.
