I would like a scope for my new AR. I plan to shoot every week. 100-200 yards.

I am sorry but there are thousands of scopes on the market from a $28 Walmart special to a $10,000 thermal scope, red dots, magnification from 1.4X to 36X and maybe more. It really depends on what your main use will be and how much cash you want to spend. Give us a few more hints and we'll see what we can come up with.

This is purely a recreational gun for target shooting. No plans for defense or competition. I am right handed and cross-eye dominant. I was told to get a Leupold V but that's $1k. I want to target paper from 100-200 yards.
