I'm thinking about purchasing some HI-VIZ sights for my shotgun; which I use for skeet shooting and home defence if the need arises.
Rear sight (http://www.hivizsights.com/Shotgun-Double-Dot-Rear-Sight-Wide-TS1002-Large-P44C1.aspx)
Front sight (http://www.hivizsights.com/Shotgun-Spark-II-Front-Bead-Red-or-Green-P40C1.aspx)

Now, would these types of sights interfere with skeet shooting or be any worse than a normal ball/bead sight?

I don't think it will be much help with HD, due to the poor lighting conditions (though it won't hurt). Tritium night sights are better (but more costly and hard to find for a shotgun) for that IMHO. I think it will help with regards to skeet and other daylight work.

Well I was mainly concerned about skeet.
If it just makes it better for one field but doesnt change the other i'm fine with that too.

Those are Turkey hunting sights.

They will be in the way for skeet shooting, and of little value for very low light HD use.

They have to have some overhead light to make them show up.

I'd save my money for a Tritium bead front that would serve you well for both uses.

+1 That's cheap...you won't be saving for long, and I agree the rear sight may be a bit much for skeet, the front would be alright, but go with the Trijicon. The glow that will always show (well for about 20yrs).
