What type of shooting are you doing most? Close tactical type shooting a 1-4 power works well in a scout mount. I get out and hunt with my minis so I like the Nikon and Leopold brands in 3x9 power. You need a good scope because the way the minis action cycles, it's hard on cheap scopes.
Remember the battle of Athens, TN!
