Burris speedot on mine. heck, I can even shoot it one handed through a wovenwire fence at arm's length if need be. Just put the red dot on the waddles and he's toast. Killed one last year with my 10 gauge at 45 yards, another at 60 yards (f/u shot after my partner crippled him at 35 yards- I would never take a 60 yard shot otherwise).

I used to shoot a Mossberg 500 and put a scope on it. Eventually sold it and bought the 835. Hunted the first year or two without a scope and missed 2 birds on the first shot but ultimately killed them. I think what I was doing was raising up throwing my line of site off. So I bought a B-Square mount and scope set at Bass Pro for $79 or $89 and haven't missed one since then. Also the mount has a small see through window where you can still see your fiber optic sites if you wanted to but I never use them.

The scope is adjustable to get you lined up perfect. No drawbacks as far as I`m concerned.

You cannot comprehend the confidence you have when a bird works in when you KNOW you have your equipment sorted out.

Exactly.
