Bass Pro has the Bushnell Banner Dusk & Dawn 3-9X40 scope on sale thru their catalog or internet order for $79.99. This scope also comes in an extended eye relief model (6 inch EER). I own 2 of these models; one is on my Encore and the other is on my H & R Ultra Slug Hunter. They are very stout scopes and have great glass! I am very pleased with them.
I just bought one Thursday for my .30/06 to replace a Bushnell sportsman which has a "triplex" reticule, which to me the thickness of which overwhelmed your field of view. I debated that or a Nikon Pro-staff for twice the price. To me, its a great looking scope with optics that appear to be at least as bright as the Nikon. And Dick's currently has it for $69.95.

I've never had any problems with Tascos, although I have heard some horror stories(actually some about other makes also). However, I took a cheap Simmons to Colorado on an elk hunt, and discovered that the eye-piece lens had quite a bit of forward and back play in it, with no way to tighten it up. But, it still told me where to put the bullet at about 275 yrds! LOL
