Actually it's not that clear. I've never seen a gun with an orange plastic site.

It's a fiber optic, many different variations available, they've been around for a while.

That isn't what is on that gun.

Yes it is, not the exact one I linked to, but as I said there are many variations.

It doesn't matter......NEVER aim ANY object that could be mistaken for a gun at anyone and you won't have to worry about being shot far carrying it.

I said yes because it's a reasonable enough facsimile that if anyone pulled that on me I would assume it was real.

Sights that look like these are actually pretty common on shotguns, I think the correct term is "bead sights". They're usually flourescent green or orange. If someone pulled a Mossberg on me, I wouldn't assume it was fake because I saw some orange on the top of it.

In a flash any of those would look real and I have been around guns all my life. Point one of those at me and I'd shot you quickly has I could. Later my comment if fake would probably be "damn fool".

Real gun or not? Just, instant thought that runs through your head.

It'll tie back to Current event shortly.. Wait for it.
Real enough that if someone pointed it at me I would use lethal force to solve the problem. Which is to say, it's real enough that I would not count on it being fake if my life was the wager.
