Your budget makes it easy since you can get excellent scopes for $250 or less. I'd say a Nikon Prostaff or a Bushnell Elite. You may be able to get a used Leopold on Calguns. I just went through this process and ended up with a Bushnell 3x9 and am super happy with it.
Just stay away from Simmons, BSA, or most of the other crap that they have in Sportsman's Guide.
whats everyones opinion on vortex scopes?

Vortex are excellent scopes for the $$!!! You are getting higher quality at a lower price point than most brands. Nikon Buckmaster, Vortex Viper (low powered variables) Bushnell Elite 3200 or 4200, Vortex Diamondback, are all good and safe choices.
