First, thanks for all responses, I'm new to forums and to shooting...So, I have reward points and the only thing that I could use is a spotting scope for range practice from 25-100yds. paper to 200-600yds. steel. I have 4 options (and yes they are all barska, not my fault) 
AD11284 20x60x60
AD11334 18x90x88
AD11182 25x125x88
AD11008 12x60x78

Can someone lead me on the right path that suites my needs (please don't tell me to buy something else, this is for free). The reviews that I have read are confusing, yes I know the fov will diminish as you zoom in, yes I know all extras but the case are crap, I will use my own tripod, ...

I'm tempted to go with the larger objective but ease of focus seems more important, then again once you have it set...forget right? 

So, any help will be appreciated and thanks again.

Best bet is to find them and look threw them and see which one you like more. Don't know much about Barska, never looked through their spotting scopes. Welcome to Opticstalk!

Given that Barska optics are usually aweful, I would go for the lowest magnification range option, since you will have the best chance at a useable image.
