I have been shooting for a long time but my experience with telescopic scopes is very limited. I just got a 16” car model and I want to add a scope. I don’t want to break the bank, due to the fact that I am a college student on a limited budget. I looked on cdnn investments out of Texas. They have a scope that mounts on the carry handle that is a 4x30, I know what that means the thing I am curious is Illuminated 2-Color Rangefinding Reticle. That scope is $54. then there is one for $15 more that 3-9x42 this one says Bullet Drop Compensator. What is the difference between the two, and is it worth it to spend the extra money on the 3-9 power scope? Any advice is going to be greatly appreciated.

IMHO.....don't wast your $$$$$ save up and get something better. You should be able to find a scope in the 250-300 range that will do the job.
