The Vortex sights have a little better reputation and would be worth considering.

If you're talking about 1-4x scopes, Vortex, Bushnell and Nikon are supposed to be pretty good for the money. Vortex Optics
Hey Mac, thanks for posting up these pages, I only need a light and a scope, and I think I'll be all set.

SKD Tactical. You can scan and email your credentials to them. They're out of stock ATM, however. I think I got the last one from them 10 days ago.

Im on primary arms right now, and I like the Nikon scopes so far, but I gotta admit, Im totally a rookie when it comes to these scopes. But I do know I dont see myself spending more than $300 on one.

Hey D. Are you sure you only want to spend 300? I have an Aimpoint with the 4MOA dot lying around not getting much use that I'll give you a good deal on for the CQB stuff and I have an older Leupold MR/T 1.5-5x in good shape which will hit steel gongs (18-24") at 450yds. The nice thing about the Leupold is the bullet drop comp dial. The Leupold is not for home defense or an entry gun though.

Brian, Dude, I feel like such an idiot, I dont even know where to start when it comes to purchasing one of these scopes. Heres my deal, I want something nice, but Im not into the whole sniper shot from 1000 meters. I just wanna be able to go to the range, pull out my AR-15, have a few people say, "nice weapon.." and be able to hit a target up to 300 meters.

I like the idea of the Red Dot, and I also like the idea of a Cross Hair Reticle. I dont know if Im contradicting myself or what, but thats where Im at.

I spent some time looking at scopes tonight here at work, and all the specs; i.e. acronyms and numbers are just freaking mind boggling.

Hey guys!

Here is a pic of one like mine... Its a Ruger P95, with a laser pointer, and about 300+ bullets plus 30 for personal defense. I took it once to a shooting range with a friend and fired like 600 bullets but haven't used it since.

After I bought it, I realized that I couldn't conceal it, so I will need to buy another 9mm with a smaller factor.

I also want to buy a .22 to keep at home for market-crash type scenarios.

I'd get a subcompact glock 26 (9mm) or the 27 (.40mm) if you wanna conceal it.. I have both, very easy to conceal.

awesome, thanks for the tip!

Eventually, I also need a .22 with lots of rounds. A friend of mine made these recommendations (knowing I am on a budget) a Ruger 10/22 or a Marlin model 60.

But... holding off purchases for a while

Just know this, if you do go with a .22 caliber weapon, that caliber weapon does not have any knockdown power, so if you're using it for personal protection, or home protection, its not really gonna do any good to the would be intruder or robber. Especially for some intruder high on drugs. Even a 9mm, you'd still be lacking knockdown power. Once you start looking at .40mm, .45mm, or .357 then you're doing some REAL damage and achieving knock down power.

Just a thought. Something to keep in mind.

eRep eh??

Here you go, check out these Vortex scopes. A dozen or so decent scopes for $200 or less, that will easily get you hitting the target ~300yrds

Vortex Scopes Lifetime Warrenty

I have a Vortex Crossfire 4-12x40
