scope

please excuse this if it is a repost.

I am looking for a scope for my shotgun, A Mossy 500. Any suggestions for one that is mid-priced and is decent?

Hello, CharlesMalacky

Welcome to the site first. You want a red dot scope or a rifle scope? If you like a red dot scope I would go with a Tasco you can get one for about $75 or less.

i have no experience

with scopes at all. i have always used the beads or iron sights. What is the difference? Pros vs. cons?

A red dot scope has a red dot in the center of the scope and all you have to do is put the Red Dot on your target and shoot. Red Dot scopes are easy and very fast to get on target.
