using a stock mounted tactical light, would you shoot with a scope, or without? walking through heavy brush, so taking shots from 5-25 yards.

W/o for sure. Faster target acquisition and 5-25 yards is pretty dang close for a scope regardless of if the target is moving or not.

Just paint the front sight white or get a fiber optic sight. Much cheaper than a night sight<<<< if you could even find one.

Many many bunnies have died due to an open-site .22 and a spotlight.

Have you ever cleaned a rabbit after you shot it with a shotgun? Worse than a gut shot pig. No thank you.

That my friend would be a lot of fun. And much, much better than a 12gauge.

You bet. Take a new hunter and its that much more fun. Shine and blast hard to miss and #4's are good at running game too.

I have seen guys dab a little bit of glow-in-the-dark nail polish on the front sight, probably not what you want for a nice rifle but doesn't sound like too bad an idea for a truck gun.
