I have the Simmons aetec. Love that thing. Took me ten minutes to sight it in and it's spot on not matter what yardage I adjust it to. My brother and dad have the BSA and both really like em. I kind of prefer the aetec.

I have no clue what all that means.
When looking for prices the 6-18 has 3 versions.
AO
SP
And illuminated dot something

I want the easiest one to use, but the price difference is almost $90 from the sp to the ao

AO is adjustable objective, thos is where you can turn the "big" end of the scope when shooting at different distances to get clarity.. you probably want this. the illuminated dot isnt a must have and wont make much difference. just a gimmick, i mean its okay but nothing that special

and if you dont wana spend the extra money get the 3x12 with AO.. either way i recommend the AO.
