It's nice to have and make things easy to adjust your scope prior to starting your round, the rule for competition is no touching the scope after you have started.
Non AO scopes can have their focus adjusted by removing the objective lens locking ring and adjusting the front lens element to focus on your preferred distance, then locked back into place.
Some form of aim point reference is also useful, generally some form of mildot reticle.
