I had one and I couldn't hit geese with it. :oops: From doves (went 2 for 20 on those :lol: ), to ducks, to geese. My problem was I would look at the sight and not the thing I was shooting at. I took the sight off and the next hunt I shot two geese. I still missed but nearly as much as I did before. So do you guys like them or not? Thank you.

They are good for turkey hunting when you are aiming at a still target. There is one on my turkey gun. You aren't supposed to aim at a flying target, you are supposed to point. I took mine off the duck and goose gun and the percentage went way up. Take black electrical tape and cover your front bead. It works wonders.

Sights? Don't even see them. I loaned my gun out to a buddy of mine and he broke the front bead. He tried to make good and put on a fiber optic sight with interchangeable pins. Still didn't use it..it fell off and I now just have a threaded hole in my barrel. My suggestion would be to get out and shoot as much as you can. That way you can just shoot instinctively and not worry about lead, etc. You won't see the sight either and hit more birds.

I am using the black electrical tape now, but I am going to try to take both beads out now. The tape keeps falling off. I will still use the fiber optic sights on Turkeys. Thanks

Don't know what gun you have, but my Beretta the sights just screw out of a threaded hole. Remington's firearms are mainly press fit in. Figured it out the hard way. I have a magnetic sight on the way for the new 20 gauge turkey gun.

I got a easyhit fiber optic on both my shotguns. I like them alot. Had them for a few years now. They are low profile and are stuck on with 2 sided tape. I did manage to get a triple on divers on time since I put them on but I dont think that had anything to do with the fiber optics. Maybe a little.

I have a green one over m y bead..rem 870 hits where it is pointed..helps in low light conditions..don't really aim with it just point swing and blot..However I have a red one on the rem1100 and it seems to sit too high and it doesn't point..align well so I took it off.

I am also a skeet and s.c. shooter, and I have a fiber optic sight on most of my guns. You don't aim a shotgun, you point it. The purpose of the sight is to to align your eyes with your gun barrel. If you do it correctly, you shoot where you look. Fiber optic sights can be distracting to some people, but after practicing a lot and getting to know your gun, you don't even see or need to see the sight, your instinct takes over.
