    This is why so many people cant use a shotgun properly.And i dont even have a shotgun at the moment.Sights dont matter on anything under a certain distance.But i dont care what you shoot,you need sights.Especially with heavy buckshot.I say with anything bigger than #5 shot,you need sights past 15 feet.
