Default Scope opinions

Just bought the wife and I a 444 H&R. I have a Simmons 8 point scope that I took off of one of my rifles sitting at the house that I would like to put on it, but was told that due to the recoil that I may want to look at buying a muzzle loader scope. This gun will only be used a few times per year and would like to use the scope I already have. What would you do?

Get a nikon pro staff or buckmaster 3-9x40. That's what I got on my muzzleloader.

I really didn't elaborate to him what kind of scope I had, he just said that a normal rifle scope wouldn't hold up to the recoil. Does this hold true or a bunch of BS. I've never had any problems with the 8 point except it fogs up pretty bad in cold weather. This gun will pretty much only be used the last week of October.
