I have been lurking for a while and need some help selecting a scope for my nephew's gun.  He is a 10 year old and my brother recently bought him a handi rifle in .357 Mag to go deer hunting with.  The problem now is what scope to put on it?  I am settling on something adjustable in the 2-7x range.  I would prefer the scope not weigh a ton either.  My price range is between $150 - $300, and I am looking for the best bang for the the $.  I have a line on a vortex viper 2-7x32.  From my research this is a highly thought of scope that has been discontinued for awhile.  Is it still in line with the latest and greatest offerings  from Leupold, Nikon, Bushnell, Burris, etc?

Also being that this gun is going to be a 50-100 yd gun, is the 100 yd parallax of a rifle scope going to be an issue?  Should I be looking at a rimfire scope?

If you have a line on a viper 2-7 go with it.  You won't be sorry. Parallax won't be an issue for a deer gun.
