As a matter of fact, you CAN aim a shotgun but it is ill-advised... The beads are a reference point to make sure the gun fits you and is pointed in level with your eye. The way I shoot you start with a low gun, watch the bird and slowly mount the gun (while still intently watching the bird) once the gun is in your shoulder and touches your cheek, fire.....I don't use the beads on any of my shotguns, even pulled the front ones off.
Do use the beads and irons for slugs though...
