The only one that I've played with is a 6-24x44. Optically it isn't bad but it's so lightly built that I doubt that it would hold up to a lot of hard use. I'd say it'll probably be fine for a bit of local hunting while you save up for better.

I have one that I got as my first scope a few years ago and still works great. It's on my .22

I bought two of the 3-9X40s for about $35 each. Durability is definitely an issue. I tried one on a 300 WSM. It is now a paper weight with a floating reticle. The 2nd scope sits on a 10/22. Anything with more recoil could be problematic? Simmons used to be a decent brand and the low price is so tempting. Best to pass.
