I'm pretty sure I would just point and shoot under stress. Do you spend the time to line up your "bead?" I can't say I've ever been in an actual shootout (thank God), so who knows, maybe I'd try lining them up while a bad guy empties a clip into my a$$.
I would rather have the sights. I can hit a bad guy, or a deer, at well past 100 yards with a slug, and it will still "point" up close. I have practiced quite a bit with my Mossy and can line the ghost ring sights up as fast as I could sight down the barrel using a bead. I have had Mossbergs with both types of sights and I prefer the GRs.
I have also shot in a police competition that had a shotgun course. You had to knock down a bunch of heavy steel targets at different ranges using 00 buckshot. If you did not hit them perfectly square, they would not go down. I used my Mossy with GR sights and scored a perfect score (one shot each target), and did it very quickly. I certainly don't feel like the GR sights slow me down any.
