    central Kali.
    My 12 ga Benelli Nova Tactical with:

    Stock milled off to 12 3/4" with Kick EZ pad which made the gun usable indoor for my 5'11" -and a heck of alot easier on my shoulder!:)

    The trigger down to 6 pounds ,from 16 pounds, by replaceing trigger spring and some non sear surface honeing.:)

    The Tactical Tailor Single point is the only way I could figure to do it. I can now throw the gun over my head and go - with my hands free! The sling releases quick too if needs be!:D

    The 4 round (only one available) Side Saddle is perfectly adaquate with the 7 round mag extension (factory) :)

    The Laser Devices Blast 2 120 Lumen light is plenty bright and the laser is pretty cool too being the white dot sights are NOT Tritium.:( I don't like coiled cords and can reach the switch just fine on the Lite Mount Technology mount.:cool:

    I silver soldered a bigger head on the safety as none was available!;)

    I keep 5 Remington Low recoil 1 oz slugs in it Cruiser ready, it prints one big hole groups at 25 yards with them, and I can keep them in 9" square at 100 meters. They are quiet and fun to shoot! If a 3/4" 1 oz soft lead hollow point at 1100fps can't do it on anything uder 400 pounds, the second or third one that quickly follows will!:neener:
    I keep a couple 000 buck and a couple bird shot in the side saddle in which case the mag cut off selector button in the foreend is a real winner!:cool:

    I don't game with this gun as a primary though, I use a trick 870(locked in safe with 1100 ect.) for that. :D But I have fired 600 + rounds thru this gun now and it is totally reliable.If I lost it I could duplicate it which I can't do with the vintage Remingtons. Also plastic doesn't rust:)
