Handgun scope for Kel-tec .223 pistol

I am planning on mounting a scope onto my PLR .223 pistol. Was looking at the Simmone Pro hunter 2-6 x 32 or 4x32, anyone have any experience with these? Not wanting to spend a ton of money, just something fairly accurate and rugged. Any other suggestions in the $100 to $150 range?
look at this one for $180
AS already mentioned if you are going to be doing most of your shooting off-hand, then a dot sight may be what you want.
So, 100 yards shot will be like a lot further shot in terms of impact velocity compared to a 16" AR-15
One thing I can tell ya 'bout the Sim. 4x32, you really have to hold out at arms length to get a sight picture. Like fishheadgib said....it's like sighting through a soda straw.
Looks, who cares?
Is 223 a reliable round for a "humane" kill on a deer? I think it is marginally so, deer can be tough, adding a very short barrel to the equation is my main problem here. My brother has the PRL-16, it jams all the time, hell of a thing if it does so when you need a second shot to stop an animal from suffering.
Finally got to take my scoped PLR to the range I have been meaning to post a report. Going to have to disagree with a few here, it has been a while since I have shot it, it definately doesn't "jump" or "fuss", as some suggested, just as I remembered it was very pleasant to shoot with very mild recoil, it is darned LOUD though with the installed muzzle break! (I got more than a few questions about it at the range) Also, have to say it is more than adequate as a hunting gun, quite a bit more accurate than I thought. I am definitely not an expert marksman, and have a feeling this gun can do a lot more that I can. 50 yards, I was darn near shooting the same hole, 75 yards shooting about an 1 1/2", when I got out to 100 I was at about a 4" group. I know the limitations of this gun, my original thought was around 50 yards, I am now more than comfortable taking a shot out to 75 yards. Now all I have to do is get a nice buck in my sights this weekend. If I am successful I will let you know!
Or was your shooting done with a field rest?
I have killed several pigs with mine so I know it will do the job but .223 is not my favorite caliber.
