Assuming I'm not in a tournament, will they get pissy if I have a red-dot turned off on top of my shotgun?

I have no issue getting teased (used to that at the clinics already).
So you're in an immature hissy fit about a red-dot on the skeet field because you can't mount your weapon correctly?...Because the stock doesn't fit you?

Why not just fix the fit issue?

If you want to do it the hard way, you might find a red-dot or 2 that mount with a single screw, a nickel fits the screw. Maybe google eo-tech or something?

Speak with your clinic maybe about self-esteem.

I'll keep checking back on this thread, but it looks to me like hardly no one here has actually tried an e-sight on their shotgun much. I was a total skeptic too, until I actually used one a bunch. Mine have all worked great. Somebody else go buy one so I'm not the only killer with a totally weird shotgun.

Once again on the stock. YOU DON'T CHEEK THE GUN. Just throw it up, put the dot on the coyote's nose and it dies. I suppose you need to be a foot in front of a clay. It takes a while to get used to it. But it works. YOU DON'T CHEEK THE GUN. Alignment is automatic.

Two friends use the Fastfire. It costs less, cases and draws easier, blocks the view less, but doesn't have as big a view as the Eotech. We are definitely outshooting everyone else stuck in their old school coyote ruts, but that has more to do with woodcraft than shotgun sights.

Turkeys a different kind of target, more like shooting a paper bullseye. They're not moving. T hunters use super tight chokes, small patterns, and sit on their butts. Clays and coyotes are fast moving, coming, going, and crossing and you stand up. Ducks and Geese are moving too, but wet conditions mean cleaning the e-sight all the time which doesn't work for me.

Not if you tell them it's a prescription red dot because you are near sighted!

Here is another picture of someone using a holosight to solve a crossfire problem in trap:
