I hear ya but states are changing their mz rules/laws all the time. If you buy one with a scope, the only state you’ll probably be able to use it in is NM (maybe AZ but not CA, CO, NV, ID, OR, WA). Even NM tried to ban Blackhorn a few years ago, but changed their minds at the last min.
Western states are getting to be no scopes, no sabots, no shotgun primers, and no pellets. I would just be a little nervous buying an mz like that. Once people (a lot of people) start killing animals at 300 yards with an mz, the state will ban them. Most western states starting banning things that were helping people kill animals past 100 yards...

I do as some of the best elk hunts here are mz hunts and odds way better. A rut hunt for bulls is very exciting with lots of in close action. And with my LO tags being anyweapon I can use the mz then too. I know many folks who picked up bows for better hunts and odds,just saying.
