Like I said before, I think it's become semantics at this point. We're all doing the same thing, just calling it something different.

I don't anticipate anyone here is hip firing their shotgun... I hope.

What about if they are to the side of you?

Not gonna touch the point vs aim s**tshow.

For a stocked shotgun with a short-ish barrel shooting buck and slugs, I like a ghost ring. My 870 tactical is set up with the XS rail with a ghost ring on it. If your length of pull is correct, it comes into line really quick. When I purchased this weapon, I never intended to shoot anything smaller than a coyote or something that was moving in any particular direction except toward me.
My Tac- 14 wears rifle sights. No stock or brace. In theory, the rifle sights are easier to line up without the benefit of the rear being planted. I found that they are more accurate than the ghost ring when I have time. I'm not popping cans at 80 yards with slugs or anything though. They are worlds better than the bead and no slower to line up.
My "bird guns" all wear the factory beads, whatever they are. I don't hunt birds except for dove and quail so you water foul and turkey guys will know what suits you best. I will say that for shooting fast birds on the wing, the less clutter in the sight picture the better. Just make sure your length of pull is optimal and a lot of things fall into place.

If the thug is close enough -- I just point it in their general direction

P/S -- I point low

HD, bead is good enough. Deer and turkey this year I'm trying a scope/Reddot because it's getting harder to see the bead clearly. At the moment those are my only uses for a shotgun.

Crimson Trace makes a very interesting green laser sight.
It would make hip shooting an option:

I have a BSA red dot scope on one gun and a NcStar red dot on another one. The BSA was under $30, the other around $55 on eBay.

I have a bore sight that works quite well. I got them close and fine-tune the red dots at the range. We can only use slugs in one particular range. Rice would know the place (DSI). The longest range is 12 yards and can put a slug anywhere I want on the target.

I like the XS big dot for a bead. It's tritium, so helps with low light situations.
I've always liked tritium sights. Got them on my 1911. I'm just questioning Amazon's method of mounting them, lol
