Chickin, lets agree to disagree. I sight in my red dot at 100' and except for the occasional "flyer" I can put ball after ball in a 2' circle. At 50' with decent paint, I'll hit a paper plate 9 out of 10 times! Red dots are made for short range sighting and I agree with your shotgun analogy. Do you know the military will use a red dot on a tactical shotgun. If you are going to aim, you may as well use the sights that give you the fastest target acquisition, and if you know how to properly use it, that is a red dot. It is much faster than standard or even ghost ring sights.
