Get the 3-9.
I have both, I wouldn't part with either. You will need 2 QD mounts, or one more rifle (the preferred method).
The 3-9 is nice, but I shoot the 1-4 just about as well at the 100 yard bench. Farther out the 3-9 holds them a little tighter, but for informal plinking I don't shoot high enough quality ammo to really take advantage of magnification. Out to 200 and a little beyond I don't see any benefit to the extra Xs.
This what I was thinking. Time to spend as much on a mount as I did on the scope.
