Gun will be used for squirrel hunting and plinking, 30 to 100yds.  I've narrowed the choices down to:  Weaver 2.5-7x28, Simmons Mag 3-9x32 and the Nikon Prostaff 2-7x32.  Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

As I don't know how much the gun will be used, my plan is to get the best quality scope available for around $100.  Then upgrade perhaps both the gun and scope later if I get into shooting and move this scope over to my 22.  The mentioned scopes are all about $120, less than 12oz and 12".  I like what I've read on this board about the Pro-Air, but havn't talked myself up to its size or price  - yet.

take a look at the simmons WTE 4-12 on the sample list, they are some awesome scopes, and have a A/O that will come in handy at close range.

Cory, what is the WTE?  I've looked around but can't find one identified as WTE?

whitetail expididtion, and they must be all sold. the pro-staff is a nice scope, and you wont be making a mistake with it, but i would get the 3-9 model.

Best scope in my opinion for that price range would be the Bushnell Banner 3-9-40. but since your looking for some compactness i'd look at somthing like nikon ( i own lots of nikon) you also might want to look into somthing along the lines of a separate company scope such as an off brand like pine ridge or cabelas scopes. i'm not sure on the quality of these scopes but from what i've seen they d on't look to bad if u do some research.
