Summary: I bought this scope specifically for range use. Typically my range and shooting is out to 100 yards. Don't let the size of this scope fool you, it is great for what I needed. Sharp and clear from 7 yards out to 100 yards. Easy to focus, and even .22 rounds at 100 yards are clear on the target. Great buy for my uses.
Summary: Took this little scope out to the range today for the first time. Very pleased. Easy to use. I was leaning towards getting something with a bit more magnification, but I'm glad I chose this Bushnell compact scope, worked just fine. Very small and lightweight, but built very well. It's not the best scope on the market, but for it's price it is high value. If your looking for a range scope and size is a factor, give it try, I doubt you will be disappointed.
Summary: The Bushnell Sentry 12-36 scope provides fair views at 12x in good light, but at higher power the eye relief diminishes rapidly and it becomes unusable to someone wearing glasses and difficult to use without glasses. I was looking for an easy to carry alternate for my 82mm Kowa scope. I intended to use it on a gunstock mount or monopod to get quick views of birds that were too far for my 10x binoculars. I did not find it suitable for this purpose.

Summary: I did a lot of research on sighting scopes before purchasing this as a gift for my father-in-law. This Tasco by far provided the best combination of features in a relaible brand for the money. It made for one happy father-in-law on Christmas day, and I frequently hear how much fun he is having with it.
