A sighting device replicates the spread pattern of pellets exiting the barrel of a shotgun. The sighting device includes a light source (preferably a laser) and a power source connectable to the light source. The device may also include a mount to attach the sighting device to a shotgun. The sighting device preferably projects a circular pattern of individual light beams wherein the circumference of the circular pattern increases as the light beams move farther from the sighting device to replicate the spread of shotgun pellets. The sighting device may also project a beam of light in the center of the pattern.
