Well after much consideration I've decided to upgrade my shotgun and put a reddot scope on it for next season. My question is what scope would be a good one to go with without breaking the bank? My shotgun is a mossberg 535 turkey thug edition with a 20 inch barrel.

in the long run I think you would be best served with the EOTech 512.

Burris ff2 or ff3 or I'd go with a mueller quick shot. Both are awesome for the money.

What advantage does the 5.12 offer the turkey hunter over the 5.11?
I know that the 5.12 is compatible with night vision gear and waterproof down to 60 feet, but neither of those options are relevant unless you're turkey hunting with the Navy Seals.

I tried the eotech in several models, my opinion is it would be great on an assault rifle, but sucked for what I was looking for with regards to turkey hunting.

I bought the Burris speed bead and absolutely love it, can't imagine having anything else.

I reluctantly went to a red dot because I had some serious issues with keeping my head down on my new sbe II with the pistol grip. A buddy advised on the Burris and he couldn't have been more spot on.

Btw for those who remember me talking about not missing, I missed 5 birds in 6 hunts this year here in TN because I didn't adjust to a new weapon and shooting beads very well at all. It makes me sick talking about it still, but it did extend my season \:\)

I missed 2 times this season because of not being very familiar with this new gun. It has the pistol grip and adjustable stock as well. I must have patterned it 15 times but when the game was on the line I kept missing. I knew what I was doing wrong but couldn't seem to help myself! On my 2nd miss, I put my head down in my hands and almost had a hissy fit! It all worked out in the end and I got my birds but not without some stress. That is the main reason I decided to put a scope of some sort on.

Is the Burris Speed Bead the one Ruger put on his? If so I haven't looked at one but like how it looks on the gun and seems like you could acquire your target very quick with it.
