    Red dot reflex sight

    I just installed one of these on my turkey shotgun. It took a bit to get them both on target in the same zip code, but I think I'm gonna like it. It's not an expensive one $25 NcStar, but never having one before I wasn't going to put a lot into one that I may not like.
    Now I'm already looking to upgrade to a better sight but not right now. I need to learn and understand this type of sight before I make my next purchase. If any of you have something similar on your shotgun, I'd like to hear your comments and brand suggestions for my next one.

    I've used them on an AR before 9 Bushnell HOLOsight). And I'm going to add one to my turkey gun soon. I have a Benelli and I'm looking at a Burris Fastfire 3 on a Sumtoy mount.

    I was looking at them but then I get to thinking "do I want to put that much $$ in something I'll use once a year?? Knowing me...probably.

    i have an eotech on a mossberg 835, the site cost more than the gun. it works great for turkey hunting. if you set the brightness in the dark you may not see it when it gets bright when the sun comes up, you want to check it as the sun comes up other wise you may have a bird come in and throw the gun up you may think its off.

    I've got some stuff to trade, so I think I can swap even for one. BTW, I got a turkey this morning with open sights, so it can still be done with the old fashioned bead.

    I have an Aimpoint Micro dot sight. Its amazing, with a battery life in years if left on. They are tough as old nails and I use it all the time. They cost a fortune however and I am not sure I would buy it again. There seem to be many sights on market nowdays, lots in the one or two hundred dollar range that are well made and I would be happy to own.

    I think its down to what you need.

    Its not what difficulties life throws at us, but how we face them that defines us....

    LOL, at this point in my life it's not about need anymore, it's about want

    Right now I'm eyeing up the Leupold Lco red dot. I just need to know more about it.

    The Leupold I was looking at had to be a china copy because it was selling for almost $500 under list price. So I ended up with the Sightmark Sure Shot Camo Red Dot Reflex Rifle Sight that is completely sealed, shockproof and IPX4 weatherproof. Maximum recoil up to 1,500g's . Very reasonably priced also.

    I'm very pleased with it.
