    Buy Ammo, Use Up, Repeat. The Shotgunner's Mantra.

    B5, looks familiar, how's the extra length working out? Wait till you see Number Six.

    Dave, The length is pretty good, I want to get some spacers and make it permament. Pretty happy with that stock too, great for SC and skeet and maybe one day hunting.

    Going to add 1/2" to the CT also.

    Still shooting Friday mornings? I might take a couple fridays off here pretty soon.

    I did add a folding-stock/pistol grip later. As you can see from my door
    in the photo, it was kind of hard to point with the original stock out the
    window. You'd be surprise how well I could hit with an M9 from a moving
    vehicle (during some training :D ), but I'd prefer the shotgun/00 buck.

    I use to shoot single shot handguns in rifle calibers, so a pistol grip shotgun
    was no big deal......

    Hanzo, it was $890-ish which is pricey I know, but I live in CA (higher gun prices) and I had just come home from Iraq and didn't really care to shop around. I found a shotgun with everything I wanted and more, so I bought it!

    my pretty much plain vanilla 870 Wingmaster. All I have done with it is add a factory 20" rifle sight barrel, and a ScatterGun Tech mag extension. Works great.

    Your choice as to which one is tactical, the first two are cowboy tactical, middle two are pheasant field tactical, last one is a Plain Jane Mossy 500 turned into a 590 with 20" barrel, 7 shot mag, heat shield, ghost rings sights. ATI collapsible stock with Sidesaddles. Home-brew rail foreend with Surefire light and remote switch. I use it for 3 gun events and defending the castle.

    I was impressed with most until I saw the one with the AIMpoint. A Shotgun has no range to add an Aimpoint.

    I so glad this thread is still going...

    Carl,
    I've always wondered about those bullpup kits. How well do they work? I've heard complaints about the trigger, and the overall feel of the thing, what's your opinion.



    maybe for slugs?

    Dots are fun.

    Shotguns are fun.

    Shotguns with dots are even...funner?

    :)

    FWIW, dots make hitting steel targets at 200 yards much easier. 8" plates fall down with authority when hit with a max dram 1 1/8 ounce slug. They fall down fairly well when hit with a 7/8 ounce 20 gauge slug too :neener:

    Who says that shoguns "have" to be close range weapons? When the only tool is a hammer...

    Alright, here's mine. I have an 870 in the safe in the basement, but this little NEF is the one that stays by my bed. I can reload it plenty fast and have used it to hunt small game, deer, pheasant, and some clay pigeons on occasion.

    I have to disagree.

    Shotguns have plenty of range for fast-acquisition optics.

    We've been seeing quite a few carbines and subguns with collimator type optics, some of which are used at very close ranges. If they can get away with it on a carbine, someone can definately get away with it on a scattergun.

    As to whether an Aimpoint is useful on a shotgun is completely up to the user.

    Oh, sorry I am late in replying.
    The Mossberg Bullpup to slug gun is a project started by my
    stepdad and finished by me after he passed away. The
    executor of the estate did not think a partially modified
    gun had any value.

    The Mossberg Bull Pup has been out of production for years
    but it was a standard factory model. That is a standard
    Model 500 under all that Helen Ripley makeup.

    The factory version had a carry-handle with open sights
    on the heat shield and a forward pistol grip. I do not believe
    the bullpup stock was available as a seperate item.

    It is heavy, which dampens the recoil from slugs, but the
    muzzle is so close to the shooter that VERY GOOD ear
    protection is mandatory.

    I can't bear to see this thread go cold. Here's a marine in action with his
    shotgun.
