I like the simplicity of my double beads on my old Mossberg 835. I dont have to worry about the sights getting knocked off. I tried a red dot scope on it. Shot it about 5 times and took it off and sold it. When I get to where I cant see the beads, I'll go to a scope with just plain cross-hairs on it.

I've had a Burris Speed dot on my setup for quite a long time. No matter the use, I get 2 seasons out of the battery. It's never cost me a turkey, but probably has taken some I wouldn't have bagged with open sights.

You WILL NOT get the accuracy out of open sights that you can with a scope, period. Having said that, the majority of turkeys I kill are very well within "open sight" range.

I hear fellas all the time talking about how a scope can cost you a bird at some point, but to be honest, if the scope was the reason for the miss, that same person would more then likely screw up a shot with open sights as well.

Bottom line, I spend a LOT of time in the turkey woods, and I've killed more birds then I care to count.....my red dot has never handicapped me in anyway. And unless it gives up the ghost for no reason during a hunt, it never will.
