    A good scope is one that has clear optics, repeatable click adjustments, holds both zero and focus under recoil, and doesn't fog internally.

    I think he was looking for brand recommendations and models to check out.

    Why does it sometimes seem like people give terse or vague answers in an effort to make people feel unwelcome to have an opinion or ask a question?

    Are you looking for a traditional scope or a red dot? I’m interested in seeing some responses to this post, I also have been thinking of putting a red dot on my markIII. Aimpoint seem to be top of the line for red dot, but $400+ is a little steep for me.

    I'm fine with either, red dot or cross hairs. This is my first gun, and I'm practicviing my long range accuracy for handgun hunting. I don't really know which is better for hunting (dot or CH) but either way I wou8ld like some opinions on brands and models. What's worked for you, how do you like it, is it reliable etc.

    Dude - it's a joke. A play on words, if you will. Evidently you cannot figure these simple kinds of things out without a smiley attached.....

    Okey-dokey....

    One thing to consider when looking at the pairing of a scope to a handgun, is that the Weaver mounts on some red-dots will not match up with the Weaver rails on some pistols. An example is the rail on top of a S&W 22A has a big gap in the line of bolt cut-outs that prevents the mounting of a Simmons red-dot. Therefore, before buying a scope, make sure that it will mount on your Weaver rail, if you pistol indeed has a rail to begin with.

    For a red dot I've been very happy with the Millett SP-1 for $62.

    Fog and rain proof and rated for higher caliber guns. 11 brightness settings and 3MOA dot.

    There we go, some quality help! Is it 2x zoom? Can you hit the bullseye at 25, 50, dare I dream 75 yards?

    I shoot bullseye competitions with it (no magnification allowed) which is slow fire at 50 yards and timed & rapid fire at 25 yards. Works great for that. I'm guessing that if you want ultimate accuracy you would probably be better off with a traditional (magnified) scope....especially if you are talking 75 yards +.
