The advantage of a scope over a red dot is that it helps you see the target. A quality scope doesn't just magnify it seems to add clarity and definition. Hunting squirrels with a scoped .22 is almost un sporting you can see them even if nothing is showing but an eye and a bit of fur. Obviously handgun scopes are less powerful, which is good because there is nothing worse than a strong scope on a gun you can't hold steady.

Have you considered a .357 Sig barrel? Not as good as a real .357 magnum because of the limited case capacity and bullet weight limitations but it might be fun.
