    my Wife, er....Santa, is getting for me a new Rebel .22lr pistol as a Christmas gift (an upgraded Ruger Charger) and I'll be putting a scope on it

    she and I will "compete" against each other (for now) at distances of 100yds (mostly but +/- yds) - indoor range 'cause of weather - she'll be shooting her very accurate Savage 93, .17HMR with a Weaver 4-16x42 scope (I'll be shooting the Rebel)

    so, looking for Scope suggestions from folks that might be doing this sort of target shooting (we don't hunt) - thank you

    here's a pic of a Rebel (not the one I'm getting, but close):

    would like to stay below $225 - 100 to 200 would be better

    I would run the same scope and ammo just to have a nice side by side comparison. However, I think it's gonna be hard for that short barrel to keep pace with a full length barrel at 100yds. Personally, I use Mueller APVs on my bench rested 22s but they might be a bit lengthy for the charger. Sharp lookin' 22 !

    you're right - but as of right now I'm a better shot than she is (I do know that she'll "catch up" with me, in time however.....)

    - just saw a utube clip on the Mueller APV 4.5-14x40mm - looks like a good value and it's "sorta" the same specs as her Weaver, but for $100 less - will keep it in mind - thank you

    +1 on Mueller APV, came with a CZ452 I bought. Big fan of both now....yeah, might be a bit long for that rig (esp w/ the sunshade).
    Merry Christmas!

    Leupold pistol scopes (had a fixed 4x) work very well and the eye relief was perfect for me. They are at the top of your price range but are worth every penny.

    I had a BSA and the eye relief was not even close to right for me.

    You may have to try a few to get the eye relief you need.
