    Personally, I find that any handgun scope with more than 2x is a bit difficult to aquire a good sight picture with. Taking your time and using a good sandbag rest makes things easier. However is not realistic practice for field use where your hold is usually compromised to some degree and sight picture is more difficult to aquire.
