Default Help me pick a scope.

Witch scope do I want for my AR. will be shooting from 50yds. Out to 300 yds.
A 3-9x50 or 4-12x40 this is for an old guy with not so good sight.

Not much difference between the two. I would say 4-12x cuz you can always turn the power down to 9 or 10x, but you cant turn the 3-9x up to 12x

This is a great choice you can use the 1x setting for 50 yards and zoom in to 4x further out.
