Hello to all,I want to add a red dot sight to my 835 predator shotgun. I am not too up on red dot sights these days and the selection is overwhelming. I was looking for something that runs $250 or under. MDR's are also an option. What do you guys run on your shoties? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

I use a cheapo BSA $30 red dot on top of an 870 with a B-Square mount. It has an 11 setting rheostat. I have been using it for a few years. 2 3/4" up through 3.5" turkey loads all with a super full choke...hasn't had a problem since. Though, the Burris Fastfire is pretty awesome, and very low profile if you want to spend the money.
