I am still really hesitant about putting a scope on my Mini. I have swapped the rear sight with a tech-sight for easier adjustment and have been bringing myself back up to speed with iron sights. I have also played around with a cheap red dot and from what I have seen it is a pretty nice addition, unlike (IMO) a laser. I, like many of you, have achieved an age where my eyes aren't working as well for me. So a scope is starting to sound really good for +75 yards. I have an amega rail on my mini, so I have scout mounted the red dot, when I use it. I want a lower power adjustable scope. In the perfect world I would love a 1-4 with a very long eye relief. My idea is to scout mount the scope and keep it on 1 for 50 yards or less (both eyes open), then dial it up for longer ranges. As you guys have more experience than I in this I thought I would ask your opinion on the matter. The closest I have seen to a scope I just described is: http://www.opticsplanet.com/bush-rs-bnr-711436.html it has a 6 inch eye relief. Your comments are most appreciated.
