Shotguns, why not...

Recommended Posts

I just bought the Shockwave,  new to me but it's been out for a couple of years.  Bought another Mossberg  with it.  A 590 Retrograde,  I just love the wood and steel combo.  Finally took one down to the receiver to give it a first cleaning.  I should not have done it a 3 in the morning though.  After failing to see how it went back together I gave up after an hour.   In the morning,  or later in the morning I reassembled it in 5 minutes.  BTW the retro will arrive thurs.  pics to follow.  I see right away you must buy the adapt for shooting the 1 1/2 shells.  They just line up and eject much better,  or if you're willing to put up with a jam -o -matic go for it.

They are a piece of work the Mossberg. ^^^  I'm always amazed with the designs of firearms.  It is especially pleasing to figure out how these mechanisms work based on springs and levers without the aid of electricity.  I remember taking all my toys apart as a child and never be able to put them back together.  I helped a friend at his job one day.  I was in awe of how he repairs some leaking pipe in a  particularly complex design using only 90's and 45's.  Now after being a plumber for forty years I've started taking my guns apart and  fighting to put them back together.  Once I do it seems rather intuitive and easy,  but that first reassembly is the toughest.  Thank goodness for the internet and of course kudos to 308ar.com.  

I bought pump shotguns this go round,  I never had much luck with the semi-autos but then again that was years ago.  I see some fire with all mixed shells and nary a failure.  Maybe soon but for now it's time to use the pumps.  Some of the ranges had remained open but a few of my favorites are opening once again this Fri.  It's time to get out of this not so voluntary hibernation.  Oh yeah,  I forgot I'm waiting on 12 gauge shells.  I guess  could load some of my own and get out on Friday.  Best of Luck men.

I know,  hard to find right now unless you pay $1 per.  Thankfully I can reload,  I had gear stashed for a few years,  gotta get to the bench.

Red, they are sold out now, but you have a good place down by you. pjammo.com  He had great prices on 00 Buckshot and 2 3/4 slugs as well as 45 acp. before the craziness. He is in Pompano Beach. He goes to all the gun shows.

Shockwaves are fantastic.  I liked mine so much, I bought another one.  :lmao:  You DO need the OPSOL mini-shell adapter.  Super easy to insert and use, and it runs those 1 3/4 shells like a champ. 

For an auto shotgun that won't break the bank, try a Mossberg 930.  I started mine on a diet of 3" magnum loads.  After about 3 boxes of those, it eats anything.

My favorite trick to play on Range Friends...  Load a 3" Magnum slug first, then fill it up with 2 3/4 #7 birdshot.  They start shooting it a couple times...  turn and smile...  then RIP through the rest of it...  That last one in the tube, when they get to it, is that 3" magnum slug...  :banana:

"YOU A$SHOLE!!!..."   :laffs:

@Sisco I'll look for him at one of the shows soon,  or go and visit the store.  Thanks for the update,  his site is barren for now.

Yes it is. Might try calling him. Name is Phil

Thanks Shepp,  I visited the site.

I ordered so much stuff lately I forgot which is which.  Just got 50 boxes low velocity 00 PMC from an order I thought was canceled.  I did get the original price,  like .63 per.  I'm seeing the same ammo at 1$ per and they're out of stock.  I couldn't get out early enough to pick up the 590a1 retrograde.  Maybe tomorrow,  Here's the Amazon truck pulling up now.  WTF did I get today?  Nuttin'  it's for the neighbor.  PMRPC re-opened today,  going next week and try all this goodness I got recently.

That’s where I buy most my bulk, although I have been hitting the lucky gunner link on the forum some love too. But when I looked for shotty ammo there wasn’t shit but bird shot.

I joined targetsports.com some time ago.  Free shipping with membership.  I don't know if they have the best overall prices but that free shipping allows me to try different ammo in small quantities without the large shipping charges.  Once a year in the 3 rd quarter of  membership you get a free box of stuff based on your preferences.  @shepp
