Shotgun Accessories for Home Defense - Ghost Ring Sights

For a defensive shotgun, simplicity and reliability are the most important factors. There are several shotgun accessories which can provide the law abiding citizen with an advantage in a home defense situation. These accessories can be added without adversely affecting the simplicity and reliability of your shotgun.

Ghost Ring Sights

One of the accessories you may want to consider for your shotgun for home defense purposes is ghost ring sights. Ghost ring sights make it easier to quickly acquire a target. This can be a matter of life or death when facing an armed criminal in the home. They consist of a post near the front of the shotgun, and a hollow ring near the rear of the gun. Because the human eye will naturally want to center the post in the ring, this makes aiming easier and more accurate than the typical front bead sight found on most shotguns.

You can find an example of ghost ring sights here:

The proper installation of ghost ring sights on your shotgun will require a competent gunsmith for proper installation in most cases.

It is also good to remember that the single most important thing is practice. Take your shotgun to the shooting range and fire it regularly. Get comfortable using your shotgun, and become accustomed to the recoil and noise it produces. Get comfortable in aiming your shotgun and lining it up on target. Practice until you are comfortable with the sights on your particular shotgun and feel confident in your abilities to acquire and then hit your target.

The above accessory will be helpful, but is not a substitute for skill. Skill only comes through practice, practice and more practice.
