Default Slug gun scope ?

I just bought my son a H&R 20 g single shot slug gun to use on deer. Most shots here in Mass. would be under 50 yards in woods with mtn. laurel. What scope would you reccommend ? A red dot or a regular low power wide field shotgun scope ?

Either would likely be fine. Personally, I like 2 or 4 power fixed Leupold shotgun scopes ( parallax @ 50 yds.).

Something in the 1-4 power range.

I wouldn't use a red dot just becasue of it requiring a battery and your son being a kid. He will leave it on and run down the battery guaranteed, and won't have it when he needs it.

No more than 2.5X, standard scope, long eye relief-(that's the MAIN REQUIREMENT!)

Just a quick follow-up.

I put a Nikon 2-7 pro-staff on that 20 gauge and we sighted it in; what a sweet gun that is. It's got the heavy barrel and I think with alittle more experience my son will be driving tacks with it (and hopefully taking a deer or two !)

The scope is very clear and the light gathering is very good. I haven't compared it to the Leupold VX-III on my rifle but it sure beats alot of other scopes I've glanced thru.

Happy hunting !!
