As if we all didn't already know - scatter guns rule!

Been a while since I took my Mossberg 930 out to the range loaded with 00 buckshot. Put a bunch of gallon milk jugs around the pit and then fired... distances were from 10 to 25 yards. If you aim (and I have a red dot) you WILL hit with several or even all 9 rounds. Those jugs went a flying all over the place. Some went up in the air 10 feet. There is some weird satisfaction a shotgun can give you that a regular rifle just cant :D:D:D

PS Think that if I only had one rifle in a SHTF situation it would now be a shotgun, not my AR15....

Here is a link to an interview with Louis Awerbuck (kind of the shotgun guru). I have trained with him

There is something special about blowing a 40mph flying disk to smithereens at the drop of a hat. I do love me some shotguns... :)

Mods: please don't close this thread; he's a clay shooter, so when he accidentally said (SHTF) I'm sure he meant "shot hits the frisbee", and nothing else. :p

Louis may be a guru for one aspect of shotguns, but he knows nothing when it come to any clay game

Agreed. Superior to any handgun for home defense. Wide variety of ammo types makes the shotgun versatile enough for damn near any practical use. If I could only keep one gun it would probably be one of my scatter guns.

I love wing shooting and shooting my shotguns, even shoot those tough clay things informally now and then, just hard on the teeth, cook up tough as nails. I keep one in my bedroom while all my rifles are locked up....but I always thought of myself as a rifleman. Never used a shotgun for deer, always a rifle...or a pistol. Then, again, I love my carry guns, kinda stick out in the mall with my shotgun. "Brandishing" they call it. Hmm, who knew?

IOW, every tool has its proper uses. :D I don't limit myself to one firearm. Then again, I don't do the BOB end of the world zombie thing. I don't believe in zombies.

I'm glad to live in a country where I can own all sorts of guns. As much as I like my hands guns and my rifles, I do love my shotguns. When the "shots hit the frisbees" ;) my 12 gauge will be at my side.

I do, but they all live in DC, so the only threat is to my wallet through their legal shenanigans

I can hit and I don't aim, last I knew milk jugs don't run or fly on their own ;)

I have more shotguns than anything else. I love them for all the reasons above. Id give up every other gun except a good pump gun.
