Nikon, I believe they have what you are looking for at Walmart. I bought a pair of 8x40 there for 75.

I bought a pair of Bushnell Trophy's this year and have been very happy with them. They aren't 10x50 but 8x42's and they also come in 10x42. I got them at Gander for 129 and I think they are worth every penny. I looked at the Nikon Actions and thought they were nice but were a little big for what I was looking to use them for.

Read up Minox glass it will flat out perform any of the name brand it will run around $180.00 but these will last you a life time and then some. Minox are rubber coated with reinforced armored housing with more light gathering ability then the box store styles.

Nikon and others are all made by the same company out of Japan. The glass is the same it is the housing quality that is different.

I would seriously also considering dropping down to 8x42 of similar 10x is nice for long glassing but when you start to shake it is very noticable no matter what type of glass.

I use 8x for everything from the woods to plains antelope to mountain hunts works well.
