    muggsy: Let's face it, being shot by a .380 will ruin anyone's day.

    Here is a interesting target. Using the 12ga Stoeger OV with a 20ga shell, quickly followed by a Shorty 7 1/2 , at 7 yds. Interesting in that some will say a inertia OV will not fire the second round. This Stoeger has no problem. Went on to shoot more different siizes of 20 ga.
    I am going to buy a 45 colt adapter and see how well that shoots.

    In 2005 my running bunch took up heading out to West Texas (about 330 mile drive for us) for 4-5 days annually to dove hunt. I started out shooting my older Beretta AL2 12 gauge and did only fair, then tried to shoot SxS guns but really stunk. I knew a previous shoulder injury was really limiting flexibility chasing moving targets and had even considered chopping the stock on the AL2 - I knew that would be a bad move to tamper with an original P. Beretta gun. I ended up in 2011/2012 buying a Mossberg 500 "Bantam" - 20 ga with 22" vent ribbed barrel, choke tubes and the junior length stock for reduced LOP. My shot to kill ratio immediately jumped from about 35% to over 50% from being able to actually move as fast as the targets for a change.

    I never understood why shotguns, generally have a 14.5+/- inch LOP, and are most likely used on erratic moving targets ..... then rifles generally have a 13.5+/- LOP and used mainly on either semi-stationary targets or moving targets having a little more predictable movement.

    Here is a previous outing with the Stoeger with a Aguila shorty Mini slug at 25 yds. The top shots I was shooting the head. First attempt, standing position. I have not shot very many of these shells. I did have a new order come in see how they perform.

    The little gun that can.

    Anyone have a bug out shotgun. I love the single shot midland.

    9mm at 25 yds with bead sight (Midland 12ga 18" barrel weight 4 1/2 lbs. The camo wrap does a few things. Provides camo and a super grip that is firm and soft. I use this gun for long treks into the swap for deer and turkey and it performs.





    Lol, weighs only 4 1/2 lbs equipped with Mobile chokes. get great groups as good as any I own with buckshot at 25 yds.

    Excellent, We have been shooting the Panther M4 heavily for the past few weeks, just a terrific firearm. . As I mentioned I love a short barrel for Woods and swamps. Hard to find a 18" with chokes. (Turkish Winchester)
    The only down side of the Panther M4 is like the Bellini M4, on the heavy side. It is going to my son who loves it. I just ordered a new Winchester. (Turkish)

    Ordered this for Buckshot. Most of the deer I shoot are within 30 yds. (We cannot use anything but buckshot in the South)
