I took that same shotgun class with Bob and realized I really wanted a new 12ga after using my 30+ yr old Mossberg 500 Persuader. She's a beauty with her real wood and clean looks but DAMN, it's heavy compared to many of the shotties these days. Now I'm wanting to get a new, lighter one for HD and just preserve the old gal.
Can't handle her anymore huh? 馃榿

Nah. Just old and annoying, like you. :p ;)
She ain鈥檛 that old! 馃槈

As far as annoying; I wouldn鈥檛 know, as I only see her on her best days (when she鈥檚 training/shooting). She鈥檚 pretty dang nice then! 馃憤

Model 12, I believe. I had one..smooth as silk
If memory serves, that was discussed on here a while back as Winchester 1897 (M97) and Model 12 shotguns were slam-fire capable, but perhaps there were others. :unsure:
Winchester 1897
Winchester 12
Remington Model 10
Ithaca Model 37
Stevens Model 520/530

All used as trench guns and could be slam fired..

I鈥檓 with ya man! I have 3 870鈥檚 & 2 500鈥檚 鈥.. then I shot a Benelli semi auto my buddy has 鈥︹ my god man!!! This SOB has the knock off system, speed load lips, variport gas crap, unreal, is all I gotta say. I did have a nice 1100 ( I should have NEVER got rid of ) & I鈥檝e shot a few other sweet semis, but nothin set up like a 3 gun deal like this one. I used to dream of jumpin up from behind a palmetto bush, into the middle of a herd of pigs, & screaming 鈥 whaaaaatttsssssuup piggy鈥檚!!!! 鈥 & lettin the piggy鈥檚 hit the floor! 馃槀 given there are no magazine limits, shot types, season, size limit, etc. , etc. , this thing was made for pig hunting. The technology in these things now is unbelievable. Another buddy has a couple that can shoot 2鈥 to 3鈥 groups all day long at 100 yds. With .45 cal slugs. A shottie is a shottie, no more & I like it. 馃憤

At least my Mossberg was no where near as heavy as the Spas 12 I had. I should have held on to that one. Fun but definitely not practical.

I have the mossberg marine for the florida weather鈥︹dded a surefire forend and a heat shield鈥︹
How do you like the surefire forend? Does it add bulk to the front end? How鈥檚 the grip?

Bob I think you should take a class on this then. Some of us were lucky enough to take one last year from this guy that knew a thing or two about them鈥.馃槣

I might do that. I wonder where I would go to do that?

Beat me鈥鈥檓 still waiting for my certificate from that guy! 馃お

Of course I did have about 6 alias at that time so he probably didn鈥檛 know who to make it out to.

Thanks. Now I need to pattern it and test the slugs I got for your class since I couldn鈥檛 shoot them in my shotgun because of the choke.

The fact you know to pattern a shottie tells me you learned something.

I thought i answered this but i guess it didnt go through. Yes it adds weight, but its not like you are carrying it all day鈥..the grip is very good鈥.
