Scope for .44 Mag Revolver?

What power scope to shoot 100 yards?  Is 2X enough?

I believe that I would go

I believe that I would go with a 4x for 100 yard shooting. 

I have a 2-7 on my TC Contender and find that the most useful setting is 4x even for close shots.  A higher power and you start getting into eye relief problems in seeing the whole field of view through the scope. But I have found that the higher powers do work well for punching holes though paper off of a bench.

If you are planning on buying one on line I would suggest that you go down to a store in your area and check one out before you purcahse one.  That is if you have a store that has handgun scopes in your area.

i think Gander Mountain has them mounted on wooden guns. Will have to go there and try them out.
