Never seen a blue one.

Like HP said blue sky and a blue sight= wasting lots of ammo.

Maybe look into a red or yellow sight.

Something you can do is get some hi-vis lure paint and put a dab on the sight where you can see it when shooting. Just a thought.

I'm pretty sure they don't make blue. My advice is to get a Hi-Viz Birdbuster magnetic and see how you like that before getting too wound up. I got one at WalMart on sale for $10, and I have yet to notice it except on the range in direct bright sunlight, with either the orange or the greel fiber insert. The truth is if you are looking for sights you are going to miss the target. I'll sell you mine for what it cost and shipping if you want it, but look because your WalMart may have them too.
An optical sight is different because they put the target and the sighting point in the same optical plane. I used a Weaver Qwik-Point very successfully many years ago, but had lots of problems with the mount, and it was heavy, but man did it work. I was looking at the new Burris SpeedBead, but I have heard people have had trouble with that mount too.

im sort of in the same boat, getting an 870 for Christmas although I use my brothers now, I hate that white bead on the end of it. as soon as I get it, Im taking it out of the box and painting it orange.

I like the bead on the end, its small, but I hate that its white. I just want to paint it with something that I can see a little better, Especially on white targets.
