    I’m still on the fence. How do you like the dot for Turkey? My primary use would be dispatching varmints. The circle would work just the same as I pattern. But, the TRS 25 is only $50 these days and it mounts pretty low on a rail and it’s small.

    The optics are great and I also use them on my ARs. I cant say much more on the shotgun, I never actually used it after I patterned it.

    I did shoot one with a reflex sight a while back and it worked good.

    My issue is head position. I grew up shooting just a bead so when I have to lift my bead to look through an optic it still feels awkward to me. I always find myself getting my cheek on the stock, realizing I cant see the target and having to adjust. Rather than force myself to adapt, I think I just fall back on what I'm comfortable with.

    Well until my eye surgery I couldn't see the bead and the target at the same time. I had to just point the gun and shoot.

    It's quite different right now and in fact I'm having a much better time with all of the fixed sight weapons.

    On that Bushnell Incinerate,

    I got word back from 3 sources, one being a vendor, a second from a customer who has purchased the sight, and the third being a rep from Bushnell.

    The riser is removable from the base and per the Bushnell rep, from the base to the center of the optic is 1.1”.

    I don’t know how that 1” compares with other optics. Can anyone chime in on that?

    My cheapo is 1 inch in theory, but it's really 25 mm because it was made in China.

    That is just 0.016" difference though.
