Welcome to the forum. Could you swing by INTRODUCTIONS and introduce yourself to the forum.

This scope should do you fine in your price range, I had one earlier on and it worked fine for me when I was starting out. YMMV.

There are lots of other brand choices and more expensive glass out there to choose from that will have better optics, but this is a good midrange scope.

Define long range and short range.

actually that Nikon Team Primos scope w/ free jacket is really a very good deal...considering they are putting in a Nikon Monarch scope for under $200, normally quite a bit more, and you get that free camo jacket (assuming you can wear an XL). 3-9x, should cover most of what you are looking at pretty well.

Oh...and like cane said, the deal is available from SWFA
