Sporting Clays mostly. My Shotgun has an adjustable rib so it can be changed to do Skeet and Trap as well.

They are great guns.

My older brother has a short barrel, single shot, lever action Ithaca n a 12 ga as long as I've known him. Don't recall the model.

The deerslayer has a very short throw too and bottom ejection. My 1200 has that short throw.

Ithaca Super Single Model 66 I believe. A friend of mine has a collection of them, including a few that were purchased from guys that worked at Ithaca Gun, that never were offered for sale to the public. We are about 25 miles South of Ithaca, NY.

Thoughts on having an RDS on a HD shotgun? I have a 590a1 that I absolutely love.

It came with the GRS and speedfeed stock but I swapped that out years ago for the magpul furniture. The next thing up for me was the sights. Torn between tritium NS and just putting the Mesa tactical side saddle with rail on it.

I've read quite a few opinions on this and like everything firearm related, everyone has a very steadfast opinion and everyone else is an idiot.

My question is, for it's intended purpose, we put RDSs on our rifles and pistols, why not a shotgun? Seems to me to eliminate the need for any light to see the bead (tracking the POSID issue), no lining up ghost rings or anything like that under duress. With the natural pointability of SGs it makes sense to me that it would be faster and just another upgraded tool in the toolbox.

Your thoughts gentlemen?

Liking the new H2O version.

Get a shockwave and put a brace and CTC laser on it.
If you really want a semi get that new Remington and do the above.

I have a M1 and like it. A good friend has a M4 and he really likes it as well. He is very happy he bought it.

I have a Benelli M-4 and am very happy with it; kids and wife shoot it as well. If I had to do it over again, I would buy the same thing. So IMHO, it was/is worth the coin, though I got a pretty good discount if I recall.

I have not seen the H2O version, but will pull it up for sure.

I have a Benelli M1 Super 90 marked Heckler and Koch. Great shotgun, very controllable and generally shoots well.

Sorry for the double tap. Remembered I had this: 15 at the time I think, and 100 lbs. She controls it well at 10 yds. The piston assist helps for sure. (Target Loads). Shoots well. There are some random 9mm in there as well.

Show that photo to any of her future potential boyfriends.

Awesome.

Debating between the Beretta 1301 (comp. or tactical) and the Benelli M4.

Heard the M4 sucks with birdshot ?

Also taking hard look at Benelli's supernova 18" tactical pump. Heard lot of positive about it.

Don't want another 870, unless find a good very old one. Last 2 870s I had were not good quality. Several issues with each. Dissapointing to see how Remington firearms have gone by the wayside.

Heard Mossberg quality has gone down as well.

Ithica's new remake of the 37 looks very interesting as well. Liking the 20" version. 8 round capacity.

Thinking going your go with the Beretta 1301 over the M-4. The 1301 not only cost considerably less, but seems utterly reliable right out of the box even with low brass/bird shot.

Some good products from Airidus also, so can magpul stock it, set up a aimpoinr micro or RMR that sits low enough to co witness, and get a Nordic magazine extension.

Just bought new Benelli supernova as wanted a pump
Action for training. But finding the semi autos easier to hold these days as some shoulder issues and not having to hold the front stock out so far in front.

And on other shotgun news, have you seen the videos of the new Tavor 12? Oh my! When you want to just kill everything!

:

That right there, the Tavor 12, is Gavin's new bear defense gun.,
