Personally, for just picking off squirells and plinking around, I'd try Cabela's pine ridge lever action scope...it's on sale for $69.00 and I'd bet it will do everything you need. If you want to go a little more expensive and get something maybe you can transfer over to another rifle in the future, I really like the Nikon Pro Staff scopes, and they all come in under $200.
If you like the classic straight stock lever action look of the Henry, think about some iron sights. You can dial them in every bit as tight as a scope at 50-100 yards (providing your eyes are good), and you'll keep the classic look. I've put scopes on my lever actions before...and it just never felt right to me.
Now if them squirells is active at night, we need to start talking night vision...get your wallet ready
