ACOG Scopes

I dont think anyone has asked about them on here so let me be the first to break the ice. So here are my questions and before anyone asks me "did I google it or look it up" I say no I have not lol. This is the first stop on my quest to learn about the ACOG Scope. So here are my questions.

1. Has anyone used them?
2. Are they any good?
3. Can non-Military people like me get them?
4. Price of them if so?
5. Anyone own one at the moment?
6. Whats the visual range?
7. What does ACOG stand for?
8. What types of weapons are they designed for?
9. Are there copies of them?
10. Whats the pro's and Con's of them?

Going to the gym constantly and growing my hair out. That's right, I'm the next David Hasselhoff. Or Barney Frank. Fuck. I don't know.

I'm slightly tempted to buy a '98 Camaro and turn it into an irresponsibly fast car, but that'll be a while. Gotta finish the truck and get started on my boy's Jeep first.

And gay man whores aren't cheap, either. But mostly worth it.
