    A have a Dan Wesson revolver with a 6" full-lugged barrel. I'm thinking that it might be fun for my nieces & nephews to plink with a scope on it. The distances would be 25-100 yds. Any suggestions on a simple yet effective piece of optic? Thanks for any advice.

    This weaver 1.5-4X is pretty good at both ranges you mention.

    I've had good service for a number of years now from the Simmons 2x pistol scope mounted on my Browning BuckMark Silhouette.

    I use the ultra-dot as well and they are first rate. But, at about $110 plus mounts (another $30 for a Weigand mount) that might be too pricey just for kids to shoot with.

    There are some cheaper red-dots around and natchez shooter's supply usually has some on sale.

    I second (or third, at this point) the red-dot for a .22, esp. with kids. It's very easy and natural, and won't amplify their unstable attempts to aim with magnification. And, on a .22, you can use a cheap one (like a 30mm BSA for 30 bucks from Walmart) without fear that it'll get pounded apart.
