Wow this brings back memories. The first scope I bought was a used Redfield 'TV wide view' rifle scope back in the early 80's. Thing worked like a charm. Nice wide field of view for sniping bushy tails. Kinda wish I still had it, lol.
I like the comment about minimizing parallax. The little difference between close in and farther shots can be significant.Hard to pick a scope without knowing what kind of gun it will sit on, but right now Nikon scopes are on closeout everyplace because they are quitting the business.
Get a low power (for fast swinging at squirrels in .22LR), and get a smaller objective. You'll want as little parallax as possible since your shots will be close in.
Most likely you'll set it up for 40 to 50 yards at sight-in, so a large objective will have you cocking the scope too far downward to keep it accurate for the rare 80-90 yard shot.
So, 2 x 7, or a straight four power, Nikon, should run $75.00 to $125.00 right now.
