Appleas and oranges... Scopes are great for precission work and red dots are awesome for plinking. BUT why give up either?
Just get a picatinny or weaver rail for your gun and mount the red dot and the scope on QD rings (quick detach) and switch from one to the other as appropriate. If you buy good QD rings like Warnes you will suffer no loss of zero when you switch but even reasonably priced rings like Millet will do fine for a .22.
Ps. the Bushnell Trophy is a great red dot for a reasonable amount of money. My buddy didn't want to spend $500 on an Eotech for his three gun AR so he decided to try the Bushnell out and he as been running it for over a year of hard use with no problems at all.
They run about $80-90.
