Jason,
I've used Leupold, Burriss, Nikon, and Redfield scopes, all 2x, they are all good, but I switched to a Red Dot 10yrs. ago and would never go back to a scope. With both eyes open you get a full field of view, all you see is a red dot supperimposed on your target. They are as accurate as any scope at handgun hunting ranges.
As far as batteries go, the only time I've had one go dead, is when I put the gun in the safe for a couple of months, with it still on. I always carry a spare when hunting, but have never had to use it. I turn mine on when I walk out my cabin door, and turn it off when I get back. In ten yrs. I've never had one go bad while hunting. I've taken a dozen deer with the red dot from 10yds, to well over a 100yds. Just as the guns are more accurate than we are, also the red dot's are more accurate than we are. There's no paralex, no trying to find cross hairs on dark bodies, and I for one have never found brightness, or not enough brightness a problem. I would go with the Red-Dot. As far as the scopes I've had, I liked the Nikon the best, it seemed to be brighter and easier to pick up the cross hairs for me.
