    Not sure if its ever been mentioned; Another benifit of a red dot on a shotgun is it tends to get your face up off the stock a little and gives you better visibility of things around you. Could prove handy depending on the situation.

    Seems like one of the benefits of a shotty, in the contexts where it is most potent, is that it doesn't require quite the same cheekweld. Don't want a chin-weld, of course, but a full cheekweld isn't quite as important. I've noticed, in doing dry work around my apartment, that for the extremely close ranges I'm dealing with, I want to use the bead more as a visual index point, rather than my extreme focus, in order to keep the picture clear. That and if I get a full rifle-like cheekweld with my high, narrow cheekbones, I can't see the bead anymore, lol.

    Anyway, good point about having that "heads-up" view of things being helpful at times.

    It is tough to find a skeet field that will allow this, but shooting at randomly released birds from both towers while moving towards station 8 or parallel to the track of the birds at a brisk walk is excellent practice for hitting a moving target, whether it is a person running or a vehicle - I found a red dot to be better for me than trying to judge the lead.

    It is also a good exercise for ambidextrous shooting and shifting the gun to the opposite side.

    Good exercise too, I was shooting about 180 rounds an hour while working with an instructor.
