Like ANY of that matters. Christ you have to wear 150 sq in of blaze orange, who cares if the thing makes noise? In fact that's a GOOD thing, it tells all the urbanite morons who hardly know which end of their shiny new wallyworld scatterguns to point downrange to stay the hell away from you! Slow to reload? How many shots do you think you get at game? If reloading is a factor it's because you can't shoot for shit.andy said:noone questions the 12's close range power. The ISSUE is the wt, bulk, expense of its ammo, small mag capacity, short range, lack of can's, concealment, GI or .22 ammo interchange, slow reloading, awkward carry of spare ammo, ammo being "open" to moisure, oils, solvents. Ever TRY reloading a tubular mag while prone, wearing gloves, in the dark? In the snow, mud, rain? shotguns a "fair weather friend, dude. It's a joke for long term combat.
If not a shottie, what was it? C'mon, you can't leave a man in suspense like that!hipster said:On a side note I just picked up a gem today not a shottie but kept 10 rounds in a dime at 15 yards.The cottontails and grey squrrels are going to be taking a shit kickin on Sat whoo hoo time to fill the freezer.Hopefully I will have some pics to post.
