I would definitely scope it. I don't know if your target shooting or varmint shooting but either are so much more fun with a scope. My Ruger 10/22 has a 3x-9x scope on it and I've never missed a squirrel or groundhog and I've shot at over 100yds with it scoped in all the way and it works AMAZINGLY! So scope it for sure.
