I searched and came up with nothing that has it all in one place. SportOptics.com is a good place. But to get videos and everything you want check the manufacturers website and YouTube.

The problem with putting a site like that together is cost, time, and number of options. Just think of all of the products a retailer would have to open up for that. Plus it's going to be hard to get an idea of image quality through the glass, and you can't get a feel for any of the controls.

Your best bet is to get an understanding of what certain things mean, like SFP vs. FFP, take a look at some reticle types, and then find a shop that'll actually let you look through a couple at some stuff that is a reasonable distance away so you can compare with your own eyeball.

Ok I'm starting to get a good picture of the scope I may chose, at the moment a Vortex for glass, because of cost. Somewhere in 6/6.5-20x50mm magnification , FFP, with, MOA. Not sure as of yet on this last one. What do you-all think ?

Find a large sporting goods store with optics like a Cabela's and go try them out. It's really the only way to see if you like the glass, reticle, adjustment controls and look of the scope. What I like may not work for you.
