Bead sight. Everybody knows you don't have to aim a shotgun.......

Having used shotguns for the last 45+ years for hunting, culls, competition shooting etc, if the gun fits you properly, when you lift it to the shoulder it should shoot to where you are looking. Ask anyone who is experienced at hunting birds/shooting competition clays whether they look at the bead before taking a shot. I know I dont, all my attention is on the target, the gun naturally follows my eyes provided I have a proper cheek weld......
( I can see how inexperienced shooters will want some aid to 'aiming' however....)
Edited to add: Yes, my shotguns do have beads but I am never aware of looking at them.....

One other question- what about pistol grips? Not the ones with just the grip, I'm thinking full stock with a pistol grip. My 870 doesn't have one but as I've been fondling various shotguns in the store I'm liking the feel of it. I might end up switching mine over. Opinions on these?

Sights on a HD shotgun makes no diff. You are going to point the thing. Get a pump. The sound of you jacking a round into the chamber will usually be enought for the perp to get the word and beat feet. You really don't want to shoot him if you can avoid it....then you'll have to buy a new rug, etc...
Use No. 4 shot, which is what cops load into that shotgun you see mounted on their dashboard. At close range, say 15', living room range, no. 4 shot will just about tear the perp in two. Birdshot at close range makes a nightmareish wound. I've seen the pictures in coroner's manuals. If you shoot at the guy with no 4 shot as he is running away you won't hurt him, which at that moment, you don't want to do anyway.

I would recommend taking a look at Phoenix Technologies stocks. They work great and come with a nice recoil pad. They have a Kicklite model that has a spring inside the stock. I believe its much better than Blackhawk Knoxx stock because the spring movement is straight back and forth unlike the Knoxx stock which reciprocates back and up smacking your cheek with every shot.
