    They have a cheap one that's not as good. Is that the one you are referring to? The PF ED scopes are the ones you want. PF 65 ED or PF 65 ED II, PF 85 ED or PF 100 ED. Angled or straight, it's up to you. Lots of threads here about the PF 65 ED. I have the PF 65 EDA II and it's a great scope.

    Check out that thread. Cameraland has the PF 65 EDA II body for $329. That's a nice deal, wish I would've waited a few weeks to get mine.

    I have had a pentax PF65 EDAII on layaway at boonies since the sportsmans show! I can't wait to actually bring it home but they had a smoking deal on it at the time. Camera land has it with the zoom eyepiece in a Demo unit for 780 which is a pretty good deal. They also have the original PF 65 ED(straight) for $550 which is still a quality scope by all accounts and hard to beat in your price range.

    You said it best when you said you have time. I would make it a point to check out both angled and strait scopes to decide. If you go to the range with a buddy ask them to bring their scope if they have one. There are also plenty of folks on here that enjoy showing off their gear and will likely give you the chance to get familiar with it and see what you like. I like angled but if I recall Tony Russ prefers strait and we both can offer a pretty good argument for why we like what we like. This is all about comfort and the only one that will be able to decide what is most comfortable for you is YOU.
