I have a 3 shotguns which came with a high viz sight. I have used a couple of them for hunting spring turkeys where I am using a full choke and aim the shotgun like a rifle when I shoot. For that application I like the sights but while wing shooting I am never aware of the sight or attempting to use it.

The only time I ever look at the sight is when I'm deer (or small game) hunting.

I like green. But again, hardly use it. If I'm thinking about my barrel or looking at it, I may as well save .50 and not pull the trigger.

I'm right eye dominate. My right eye is the only sight I need. I removed the front bead from my Browning XT years ago. When wing shooting focus on the target not the gun.

Brass bead.

I am always aware of the front sight on a shotgun to one small extent or another, recognized or not, admitted or not...most humans are.
There is also nothing wrong with that awareness.
Plus, being aware of it is not the same as being distracted by it.

A problem only develops when the awareness becomes an action that limits the ability to wingshoot.
A “high visibility” front dot is an enabler of that action.
Some can work past it and some can not.

As I just bought a ‘59’ Model 37 16 gauge with the one high-viz that makes me smile :D , I suspect there will be an opportunity for me to flounder a bit on some wild bird presentations.
That trade-off is acceptable, to me.
However, I would not court it in manners other than Ithaca.

Plus, I have had some hi-viz stuff break in thick cover...before I had replaced with a bead.
They are all the rage tho so, good luck in finding one that works for you.
