Ghost ring sights are a good fit for the shotgun. and or short range pistols and etc.
Ghost Ring Sights consist of a Post Front Sight, and a LARGE aperature rear sight. When looking through the sights, and focusing on the front sight,
the Ghost Ring rear sight, instead of a small peephole, will appear as a large thin fuzzy ring - hence the word "Ghost Ring".
If you are shooting further than this with a shotgun chances are you're using slugs and should be using a rifled barrel with rifle type sights.
At least this is what I've always been told about the use of ghost rings.
Personally my mossberg has the plain brass bead on the top of the barrel. This has always worked well for me, but I don't really shoot at anything
beyond 25 yards with my shotgun.
