Shotgun Sight

What sight should I get for my shotgun?

I am having trouble aiming and hitting targets, I have a bead sight, and it is not doing the job. I am a newbie shooter but at the range I am having much trouble learning because the sight is so hard to see.

There is no stock, it has pistol grips, so I hold it up and this is where a good sight helps..believe me when it used to have a stock I didn't have this problem.
I was wondering if anyone can recommend a good shotgun sight, or any aiming-aide that is rather inexpensive. I didn't want to put in a scope due to cost and then it would lessen the tactility of my 12ga.

Also, if anyone can explain how to install whatever they recommend that would be great.

Thank you everyone, I appreciate any help!!

BTW: I shoot slugs

With no stock you are not aiming, you are pointing. The only hope of having consistent hits with your current configuration is having a laser mounted and have the shotgun sighted in to hit at point of aim at 25 yards.

Using a stock and a scope would INCREASE, NOT DECREASE the tactical utility of your shotgun. I would suggest a good collapsible 6 position stock, an 18 1/2 inch smooth bore barrel, two point sling and a tactical optic ( I suggest a red dot) with a wide field of view . With this set up and slugs, the weapon is capable of shooting 100 yards if you are.

As far as sights are concerned; If you are putting yourself in harms way, get the most dependable, high quality red dot you can afford. In my opinion that is an Aimpoint. Then train with that piece of equipment until you are confident you can save your life with it. If you are target shooting, plinking or hunting and your life does not depend on your optics, then you can compromise. I would look into a Vortex Strikefire, Tasco Pro-point, ADCO Alpha series, Konus Sight pro, Bushnell Trophy series, Sightmark Ultra series, Tru Glo IRM, Pentax Gameseeker, Millett electronic sights, Leatherwood Hi Lux. If red dots are not your cup of tea, then there are a host of tactical iron sights on the market. Ghost rings are okay unless you plan on using them in low light. Your factory sights will work fine in the daytime. XS makes a Big Dot for long guns. Hope this helps
