If the rifle is equipped with open sights learn with the open sights first before putting out money for a scope. You could shoot 50 yards accurately with a 22 rifle and open sights trust me. You can even pull off some 100 yarders once you get the hang of it. You really don't need a scope if your shooting under 100 yards. Some may disagree with this but there are many folks who don't use them and prefer to use open sights. It's more of a challenge, and once you learn with open sights, a scope will be a piece of cake. Try it open first and save the scope money for when you get that first 30-06 or 300 Win Mag !!
