Hoping for some advice on gun, scope, and pellets to hunt iguanas in South Florida.  Currently considering the https://www.dickssportinggoods.com/p/crosman-fire-np-pellet-gun-16csmufrnpwth4x32agu/16csmufrnpwth4x32agu

Whats a good red dot scope for this model and the best pellet for a one and done head shot?  Thanks in advice.

Get a .22 instead of a .17.  You might want to ask how a given scope stands up to this gun, given it's a gas ram I'm not sure.

The iguana hunting videos I've seen they are not getting that close to the animal. I did a little research on the guided Puerto Rico tours and may book it this fall. That looks like a poor weapon of choice if what I have seen is correct. Mass can also help make up for a poor shot. I agree on the larger caliber suggestion. I was going to take a .25 FX Indy. I had a bad travel experience with the airlines and bottles. You might even post looking for a local forum member that might let you try a gun first. Offer to take them hunting with you. 

Red Dot sights get worse with distance. Cover so much area that it's hard to know exactly where you are aiming. Under 20 yards with a good one you might be okay.
