Don't want to knock it too much, or knock anyone who uses 'em.
There's really no "right" way to say this without sounding like a complete azz, so lemme' apologize up front before I say it-
It really seems to me, (like various other modern "conveniences"), that it takes away the neccessity to really learn how to shoot a friggin' shotgun, similar to the convenience of clicking a mouse and getting instant information.
If one could take the time to learn how to follow through with your swing on a shot, it would certainly seem to me you could save yourself some money and you wouldn't need one.
Sorry for the negativity guys,... Geeze man, ya' gotta' MISS a target before you really learn how to HIT one,.. and they, (reflex sights), seem to me to be like a set of training wheels on a bicycle.
Who said your way was the right way, for everyone that is? What makes one way "The proper and only way to do it". If the end result is that you as an individual can make clean ethical kills I dont care if you have radar on your gun. Equipment is ever evolving and that doesnt mean its a crutch or gimick just because it doesnt adhear to the "old ways". The old ways had me hunting in jeans, rubber knee boots that filled with water on every hunt and a Korean war era OD field jacket my uncle brought back from the war. I froze my arse off back then. I had less than a dozen old decoys that was missing most of the paint and 1 worn out wooden call a neighbor gave me. Times have surely changed for the better for me..........
