I agree with the above. The 3200 Elite 3-9x40 is THE best scope on the market for under $200.

DO NOT let anyone sway you to the 3200 Elite compared to the Leupold VX1 without putting them side/side for yourself. No way does the 3200 come close to clarity and brightness to me. This is my own opinion, but I looked really closely at the two when I bought my last scope for my Ultra Slug Hunter. Opted for the Leupold.

Belated welcome to TnDeer. My preference in general is strongly toward Leupold. Most of the other brands mentioned above should give you good results, but if you should ever need service, Leupold's warranty and reputation for customer support is hard to match or beat.

I have one on my Encore and love it. I went with the vx 1 because it comes in gloss finish which makes my Encore just that much sexier.

I have an Elite 3200. It now sits on my squirrel rifle. Light gathering is not good at all. Neither are the Nikons. I don't have a VX-I, so I cannot comment on them. I have seven VX-III's and the scopes mentioned above (Nikon, Elite) do not compare. I have one VX-II and I like it just fine, too.

You have 10 monthes to save up and get a good scope. Try for a better scope.

I think you would be pleased with it. It doesnt take oodles of money to get a scope to hunt/kill deer with. I would hate to see the stack of deer I killed with a Tasco when I was youunger and just wanted a scope that would hold zero and I could kill deer with.
