I am purchasing the last few things I need to get started. I've put off the purchase of a scale b/c it's been a frustrating search. Reading Amazon review on the $30-50 digital scales sounds like it is hit or miss. I know anyone can post any review and if there are a million scales by any manufacturer you will find one that doesn't work. But this is life and limb we are talking about. I've seen plenty of good and bad reviews on the manual as well. Those seem to get feedback along the lines of difficulty to set up or get zeroed vs. 'holding' a zero. I hope this doesn't turn into a 9mm vs .45 type divisive question... is one or the other inheritenly better, safer, easier, more accurate? Is there a scale that is like the "Glock 19" of scales - might not be pretty but will get the job done and millions are using it?
