Jep,I'm a firm believer in fibre optics.I cant tell you how many times they've been helpful in early morning low-light and shady conditions.A cheap easy to put on but extremely effective set of fibre optics such as one of Tru Glo's gobble dot series will get the job done.I've personally used the magnum gobble dot for the last 6 or 7 years or so with great success.Heres a link to take a peek.......

I too like the fiber optic sights for low light situations and because I can move my pattern with it. The Pro Series Magnum Gobble Dot that Bobgobble2 mentioned is adjustable, not all Tru Glo fiber optic sight are adjustable. However, I used the TRU GLO series for a few years until I was working a bird and noticed my rear sight was gone. At the time they had plastic parts which broke off and left scrambling to remove the front sight. Since then I've gone to the Williams Fire Sight which I've been using now for about two years with no troubles. I see now that Tru Glo sight are All-metal construction so that broken part shouldn't be an issue. Take a look at Tru Glo and the Williams Fire Sight at [link]http://www.williamsgunsight.com[/link]

I used the Tru glo sights but because of my age and my eye-sight getting poorer went to a Nikon Monarch Turkey Scope and absolutley love it.

Optical clarity is enormous. Gun was spot on this year and on one shot all I had was a basketball sized opening to make a clean shot through thick cedars and grapevines. Scope was dead on!
