Re: Just came home with new HD shotgun

Ok I stripped the gun down and gave it a good cleaning. I gave her some light lube and went to the range...

OMG this puppy barks! I ran through several box(s) of Federal LE ammo. Both buck 00 and truball slugs.

No problems feeding 100% relieable weapon! Not too bad on my shoulder. After 20-25 shots recoil was still not that bad.

I had no trouble keep all rounds in the black on my B27 target out to 25 yards. Even able to make some impressive head shots!

I love this shotgun!!!!

Re: Just came home with new HD shotgun

im intrested in hearing how well it shoots at 100 yards..25 yards is a chip shot and most guns do well at this distance...but 100 yards is another outcome....

If it's a home defense shotgun with a smooth bore 18.5" barrel, I doubt too good.

Re: Just came home with new HD shotgun

Its for up close and personal work. At a 100 yards I would not consider ya threat from that far off. But if I do I have a few tools to reach out and touch someone if needed.
