From an overall perspective, my preference is a good traditional scope (no or little magnification). I'm using the Burris Fastfire on a particular dedicated turkey gun focusing mainly on light weight.

I too have the fastfire. 3rd season and still strong on same battery. Will change out next year though. When I get out of the truck I always check to make sure it comes on.

The Fastfire (and some more expensive similar ones such as EOTech Holographic) are the only "red dot" type sights I find appealing. Actually, I think they are more properly termed a "reflex" sight as opposed to the much larger-sized "red dot" scopes.

I use the see thru mount on my Mossberg 500, I have access to red dot or tru glo sights. I have had the same battery in mine for 3 seasons but keep a spare in my vest.

That's one of the reasons I haven't switched to a red dot. Afraid I'll do that. Mine is a traditional scope that's 1x.

Two questions:
What model Leupold NWTF?
I have a new Mossberg 835 and mounted my EOtech on it, but the scope sits way too high. Does anyone use a cheek rest for this scope/shotgun combo?

Mossberg thumbhole stock has a raised comb puts your head in perfect position and very comfy I might add!
