Not a huge fan of lasers. If you like them, it seems like decent enough concept.

I personally think the shotgun laser is a really cool concept. That said I have never really been in a situation where I would need one. If I can get a bead on a pheasant flushing out of a bush beside me I'm confident I could hose someone kicking in my door.
If you intend to do a lot of shooting from the hip the laser could be very useful.
Come to think of it, that's the only time I've ever used a laser on a long gun. Shooting a coffee can at 25 yards from the hip with a .25 cal airgun and shooting a can of tannerite at 50 yards from the hip with my AR. Both fun but I wouldn't say they justify the expense.

For shooting from the hip I like to use my support hand index finger to point at the target. Between thatn nad having my trigger finger pointing at the target before going to the trigger I get pretty good hits. I still think firing from the shoulder and "aiming" is best.

Sounds time a good technique. I'll have to try that some time.

From teh time we are born and want something we learned to point pretty accurately. If somethin is inside 20 yards and between both of your pointer fingers, there is a pretty good hit probability with a shotgun. A Marine Staff Sargent taught me this technique when doing a shotgun qual, where we had to shoot three targets twice each from the hip at 10 yards. Worked pretty well.

Technique worked well from the shoulder looking over the sights of an MP5 or M4 as well. Use the middle finger on the trigger with the pointer finger pointed at the target and the support hand index finger pointed at the atrget as well. This was taught as a CQB and low light technique so that you can still keep a good field of vision.

I'm a Navy Corpsman, but Marines do know their small arms, so I listen to them a lot when they offer to teach me something.
