Yeah, that's the same reason I'm kind of hesitating to get one. I can live without the FFP, but I'd really like a side parallax adjustment. Supposedly not needed on scopes less than 10X, but I've noticed the effects of parallax personally on scopes @ 10X.

Sadly, even stepping up to something like the Nightforce 2.5-10x32 still doesn't get you a side parallax adjustment. The SWFA 3-9X42 FFP was another option I've been looking into, I just have a hard time getting over how large that scope is for a 3-9 power. I may end up going with a Bushnell 3-12X44 Elite Tactical with G2DMR. Hopefully by the time I've saved up the cash they might have an illuminated version available....
