My shots will be from setting in the blind so I have time and the deer will be standing or walking at the most. I like the red dot but thinkinh about getting a scope.

I have a Simmons pistol pro Hunter 4x32 and it works like a champ. I’ve shot a few does with my ruger super Blackhawk 44.

I have/use Bushnell 2x6, Trophy Bushnell 2x6 Elite, Simmons 4x, and a Weaver 2.8x8. All are good scopes and none have failed me.

Thanks, I've looked a couple of those and they're on my list.

I have about every handgun scope from 2x fixed to 3-12x variable. In my opinion the 2x fixed makes things seem further away so I tend to gravitate to the 4x fixed. However, the typical 2-8 variable is pretty good all around scope. I like Leupold and the bushnell elite scopes most. Also forgot weaver they tend to make a decent handgun scope

Any interest in a Tasco Pro Class from the days (1990s) when that particular scope was on par with Bushnell? Crystal clear Japanese glass if I'm not mistaken and the scope is in pristine condition.
