    Default Holographic Sights

    Anyone admit to using one or considering one on their duck gun? I have them on ARs, liked those so much I put one on my 416. For about a year I've been wondering how one would work on my waterfowl gun. Anyone done it?

    I guess maybe I shouldn't have admitted to thinking about it either.

    I've never paid much attention to sights on a shotgun, and from what i remember, those who are expert shooters and instructors advist againt focusing on shotgun sites for wing shooting, its a point thing rather then a aim thing with shotguns. Bud

    You are totally correct. I guess that's what made me wonder about sights. The field of view is large, easily use the sites with both eyes open.... Almost seems like a different version of a fiber optic bead.....

    If your gun fits right, it will line the end of the barrel up with your eye, and your eye does the aiming...I don't realize I have a bead. In fact I've had them fall off and my shooting didn't change the rest of that weekend.
    It's not skybusting if you fold em'.

    I have noticed this myself. While shooting clays onetime I realized I was breaking a lot of clays and wasn't even realizing the bead was there.
    It was more instinctive shooting.

    I've never used one myself, but a friend of mine swears by his. Only problem, if the battery dies or the scope gets wet (which happens a lot during duck season), he's SOL and can't hit anything. My advice: Keep pointing the bead.
