Have you ever seen one of these sights???

Where can I find these things?? Laugh if you may, but I tell ya, they work for me. No more under or behind shooting with this on my shotgun! I had one years ago but lost it during one of many military moves. I think it was called a rube sight. I'm not quite sure if that's how it's spelled either.

My dad put it on my shotgun back in the '70's because I had the tendency to undershoot and not follow thru with my swing. It worked, and it stayed on my 1100 for the next 2 decades until the mounting screw backed out, causing the site to come off.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.....................markerdown

Cabela's has a updated version called the DuckBuster sight. I have never seen one myself.

I never knew such a thing existed. It took me a couple years of shooting clays to learn proper lead and follow through.

I just checked Cabelas. That duckbuster looks similar, but I don't care much for it. That hiviz stuff would screw up my FOV. The reviews aren't favorable.

I liked this thing because the way it's built, you can track your bird, both eyes naturally open and keep peripheral vision

A friend of mine says he saw them recently in a catalog but can't remember which one. It may have been Midway, Natchez, Sporsmans, or any other of that type. Gonna go get an 18 pack of cold ones and go help him "remember" ;)

I spent a couple of hours searchin the internet for these things. Not knowing what they are actually called don't help.

When I find them, I'm gonna stock up :)

I was watching a outdoor show, where I think I remember they were duck hunting. Anyway one of the hunters was using a Burris SpeedBead. he was knocking down the birds with it no problem. I was impressed with his shots, as I once considered trying one. But a reveiw on the internet was not good for flying birds, they said it would work well with turkeys though. Some day if $250.00 plus bucks is not a big shake, I would still like to try one.
