I use a Steyr HP model LG110 now similar to Micky's LG100 HP, and they are ideal for HFT, but its more down to the fit of the gun and scope on top than anything now with the quality and accuracy of most of the PCP's.
You are not restricted to 12x power in most leagues as stated above, but in reality 9 or 10x mag is the max you can easily see the targets with at 45 yards and 8/10 yards, without altering the PX.
Everyone will help you when you start, so just get stuck in and enjoy it.
