Do you like to hunt turkeys or other types of fowl? If so, then try to add the Dead Ringer Beard Buster Sight to your shotgun. This sight attachment will make it easier to see your target in dark or dim environments. This is a circular sight that gets attached to the rear and high front sight which replaces the factory sight of the shotgun. The front sight is designed to be universal since it can fit vent rib shotguns that are 3/8, 1/4, or 5/16. The Beard Buster is compatible with almost all the popular shotgun brands, including Remington, Beretta, Winchester, Ruger, Mossberg, Weatherby, and more.
A lot of readers of the blog ask about the best shotgun laser. Personally, I don’t use them on my shotgun but tested several of them. So let me share my experience with two of the best lasers for shotguns.
The Remington 870 is one of the most popular pump action shotguns on the market today. Many avid Remington 870 shotgun owners like to purchase front sights which make it easier for them to shoot and hit their target with the weapon. A front sight attachment is a very nice accessory for the Remington 870 with factory bead sight. The hardest thing is choosing the right one that suits your needs. There are virtually dozens of sight brands on the market but many of them are not worthy of being attached to the Remington name. However, the TRUGLO Glo-Dot II Shotgun Sight is one exception to this because it produces a highly visible light that is bright enough to see at any time of the day. Not only that, but you can get the sighting in either a red color or green color as well.
Organized “Home Defense” training last week ended. There were 9 participants and one of them had very interesting homemade front sight protection on his Remington 870. I have never seen anything like that before. It protects the front sight from bumps which are very common when a shotgun is heavily used during hunting, competitions or training exercises.
Rifles are great weapons for hunting or when you’re performing any kind of long range shooting activity. But if you want to increase your chances of hitting a target, then you should definitely invest in a sight scope accessory as an add-on for your rifle. A sight scope is generally installed on the top of your rifle and it allows you to see far away targets at a closer range. These scopes generally include a crosshair as well so you can easily align your target in the middle of the crosshair and then shoot the target with an almost guaranteed chance of hitting it successfully. If you are a sniper or long distance shooter of any kind, you will certainly want to invest in a sight scope.
A holographic sight on a weapon is a sight that does not magnify the image of the target. Instead, the sight has a glass optical window that the shooter looks through and sees a reticle image that gets superimposed on the target in the distance. Obviously, the reticle isn’t physically on the target, but in the glass optical window, it creates a hologram to make it appear like it is. This allows the shooter to more accurately aim at their intended target and fire at it without trying to get their target in the middle of some magnified crosshair.

ACE IN THE HOLE
Williams Gun Sight Co. has a variety of sights for shotgun, rifle and handgun platforms. I will begin this review with the W.G.S. Co. Ace In The Hole fiber optic ghost ring with an integrated 1913 picatinny rail for the Remington 870 shotgun. The Ace In The Hole is designed for drilled and tapped receivers. This ensures a rock solid fit which further helps to maintain a constant zero. Gunsmithing is required to drill and tap the receiver unless the Remington 870 has already been drilled and tapped. Ensure that the screws included will work with a previously drilled and tapped receiver by calling Williams Gun Sight Co. and asking them directly.
