New wing shooter question

Post by DewayneH »

What’s everyone’s opinion on brass bead vs. fiber optic for a waterfowl gun.

I've had both and I prefer the brass bead. No real reason just my preference.

The fiber optic seems a little distracting for some reason

I used to be a brass bead all the way, but I've shot a Stoeger 2000 for 10 years now and ive gotten use to it i guess. Its more about fit and feel for me, like i aint real sute how much I even use a bead, just instinct.

When teaching kids to shoot skeet for the 4H, sometimes I have to remove a fiber optic bead from their gun. If it is too bright, it will distract them and they will have trouble focusing on the target.

I agree with y’all 💯. DW same here, I don’t actually aim it’s more instinct.

Barbwire, when I try to aim like I mentioned above I think the bright fiber optic is throwing me off

I shot a browning silver and a SBE 3 this morning and it want even close. The browning was hand down the better gun for me.

I can see that, never thought about it until you pointed it out, but I can see that. Hope you good Mike

Update:

I went with the Browning and the brass bead. I took it out last Saturday and shot some skeet and hit ~15/25 which I’m certain that’s a record for me 😂
