Type of shooting ????
The type of shooting will help determine what type of optic might best serve the need. 1x red dot, low magnification 1-4x or higher magnification. For example a guy sitting on his duff at a bench trying to make small groups on paper will require a different optic than a guy shooting offhand at multiple steel targets needing fast target acquisition or general offhand plinking.
As you can see... there's already a recommendation for a 1-4x, 3-12x and no doubt someone will recommend a 1x red dot. I will. I use a 1x red dot for shooting from 50 to 200yds. So.... once you got the type of optic nailed down then recommending a specific optic will be easier.
Since I live in JeRsEy
I'm opting for sitting on my Duff.
All kidding aside, I go to the range usually with my handguns & a rifle or 2. Bring my son to make him comfortable with firearms. Hang for an hour or two. So mostly bench sitting and plinking targets.
