Need Spotting Scope Info

I'm new to smallbore silhouette and target shooting and need to purchase a decent spotting scope. I want to find out what people have experienced with "straight" and 45 degree angle eyepiece scopes and what types of scopes they have and prefer. I am currently looking at a Bushnell compact Trophy Scope 20-50x by 50mm. Thanks for the help.

I currently have a straight 15-45x50mm Tasco. It works for what I need, and it was cheap.($40) I do wish I would have spent the extra money on an angled scope though, especially when I shoot CMP matches. It makes it much easier to use without getting out of your firing position.

If you want the best get a KOWA. Check with Jim Owens for the best price around.

Get a 45 degree angle scope if you plan to shhot prone. Kowa are great but are costly.
