Any Red Dot User Out There?

Being that my eyesight isn't what it use to be,I have found that the fiber optic dot's on my turkey gun appear as more horizontal marks, than dots,both front and rear sights. I really don't want any magnification,so do not have the need for a scope. I know red dots require a battery,but will carry a spare,just in case. If any one has had experience with the red dots,good or bad, I would appreciate your feedback. Thanks

I use a aimpoints on my two turkey guns, best i have ever used, the dot on the aimpoint unlike other cheaper models is always centered no matter were the dot is in the scope(canted) they cost about 250 and up. second choice would be the nikon model.
I have a Bushnell trophy red dot on my 870 and wouldnt be without it. I bought it for $99.00 just to try out and after using it for 2 years I am very happy with it. Since it has multiple dots and even a crosshair reticle to choose from I even use it for deer hunting now. As for the battery you can carry an extra but you wont need it unless you leave you red dot on for a day or so. I have forgot to turn mine off several times so I carry an extra battery also but they only cost a couple bucks.

my cousin uses a pollington 33mm red dot and loves it..i am thinking about it..

I hunt a red dot on my O/U. Only way to fly and don't worry about battery life unless you leave it on all the time. I don't bother to turn mine on until I figure I am gonna be using it--and then I know for sure which brightness is gonna be best.

They are also great for patterning your turkey blaster, you really know you were on and can see the drift with smaller shot.
