    Hello all,
    The Beretta has a small gold post in the middle then a white ball sight in front. What sight picture am I trying to get when I line up. Figure 8 type look or the white ball disappearing behind the gold post? Sorry if this is a silly question! Also has any one done anything to the sights to enhance the picture?
    Thanks, you are all a great resource!

    To start with try the Figure 8, but more importantly I would spend some time in the field at the Patterning board, both at 20 yeards to start, and then maybe 30 yards.

    Get to know where it shoots, and then see if you like a full choke or something a bit more open, like a lite-full. Personally I like the Lite-Full choke, in my guns. NOTE....this is just my opinion, and others will have theirs.

    You can stack the beads (figure 8 as mentioned above) but there is not
    reason not to have as much space between the beads as you need to get
    the gun to shoot where you want.

    Unless the gun really fits you poorly you do not need a middle bead..I covered mine with black nail polish.

    Darren,

    It's a Beretta the beads might not line up for you just pattern it and start smoking targets.

    Ignore the beads and shoot the bird!

    Good Luck,
