With the huge number of scopes available today, there's a scope for just about everyone.  The important thing to remember when looking for a scope is to ensure you get the proper scope for the type of shooting you'll be doing.  When choosing a scope for a pistol or handgun one of the most important factors to consider is the extended eye relief.

In very simple language, the eye relief is the distance between the eye and the ocular (rear) lens of the scope when the full field of view is visible.  Armed with that information, the next step would be to actually determine the proper eye relief with a full field view.  Look through a scope and as you do, try moving your scope to different distances from the eye.  There will be a ring or shadow in the site picture.  When that ring or shadow is gone completely from the site picture, the target should fill the eyepiece and be centered in the scope.  This is when you have a full field of view.

At the Shooter's Den, we have a large assortment of handgun scopes and tactical lasers for your handgun. If we don't have the one you are looking for, we can order it for you.

Come see our stock of Bushnell, Nikon, and Leupold handgun scopes.
