That reticle has too much going on in it for my tastes. I'd go with a heavy reticle and something in a fixed power. I like this better.
It isn't much more expensive, but is a huge step up in quality over the VX-1. Leupold fixed powers are the most reliable scopes on the planet. This is light, quick and with 5" of eye relief and the heavy reticle you will find the crosshairs fast on quick snap shots.
