I've scoped the wife's shotgun. She ask me to do it last year. She has only been shooting 4 years. With zero gun experience prior to that. Her reasoning was, "everything I have ever shot has one, why not this too"...so true...so I did! Mossberg youth 20ga with Primos turkey tube, Mossberg rail and a budget 1x4 from ebay that has a lit reticle. It worked just fine too...her first shotgun turkey, took at 15 yards!
