  1. Happy Birthday Ray. From the wilderness of New Hampshire. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. HE, Didn't know you were an AH guy too. Atlantic Bagel is a great breakfast joint, and the folks there are really nice. PRECSPK is how I roll too (but on a kaiser bun). Sometimes I would go to Slaters for a change of pace, but would need to order the skinny sandwich. 2 inches of porkroll in a sandwich is just gross. I just sold my house on Park Ave after deciding our family loves it up here in New Hampshire. But we come back often to visit friends. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I have never shot one, but they have a terrible reputation. You would be better off looking at the CZ over/unders.
  4. I got fitted for a gun at G&H. It was expensive, but came with a mini lesson. Beautiful clays course. Nice folks and very professional, but too upscale for my tastes. The 692 is a really nice gun. The new feature for turning ejectors i to extractors had some problems. I think it had to do with an o-ring. But Beretta probably has that worked out by now. I own the prior equivalent model, the 682 Gold E Sporting, and it is a great gun. Enjoy! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. For your stated use, the Mossberg 500 combo is a good choice. I would take it over a Remington 870 Express these days. The Remingtons are really rough out of the box these days with declining quality control. If you want something nicer, like a nice looking gun to pass down to your kids, a Remington Wingmaster would be a good choice. But duck hunting lends itself to having a beater gun and the Mossberg is great for that. If you are considering an AutoLoander, the Beretta A300 Outlander is a great choice and can be had for $700.
  6. It is basically a car battery with a plastic shell and carry handle, with a pump and charging display. You plug them in a wall outlet and the charge lasts a few months. I have had Craftsman ones and they worked great.
  7. I have too, in competition with birdshot. 00 Buck has a nasty recoil and blast. Recovery for a second shot is slower. I do agree that 20 gauges are often lighter, but there are purpose built defense guns in 20 gauge that are not lightweights. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. A 12/20 gauge shotgun is much more devastating a weapon than a 38 revolver, but... #1 - Does where you live support using a shotgun? Condos, Apartments, a home with loved ones in adjacent rooms? Any of these make it a questionable choice. Buckshot does not stop in drywall. Knowing your target and what is beyond it is really important here. If you fire, expect the blast to make it through a few rooms. And do NOT think that birdshot is an effective means of stopping someone. Go to www.boxoftruth.com to see how it stacks up. Very little penetration. Good for not going through walls. Bad for stopping bad guys. If you can say that you still want a shotgun, then a 20 gauge is a great choice. Half the recoil with 3/4 the effectiveness. That is a solid tradeoff in my opinion. If you want a 12 gauge, an alternative is an autoloader, where the action absorbs some of the recoil. Check out www.grabagun.com. They have a Black Friday sale on the Beretta 1301 Tactical shotgun, if you are interested in that route.
  9. Ha. That is forward thinking. I got a Henry kids lever gun in 22 for my girl.
  10. Thanks Nick. Following this thread...
  11. Great shop. I got a shotgun fitting done by them. I could walk around their store for hours. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Unless SA has changed their design, the Scout Squad is the shortest M1A rifle that still uses the standard M14 gas system. The 16" versions take non-standard parts. I like owning guns where replacement parts are plentiful from multiple sources. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I am sticking with my HK P30 and P30L light Lem. It is the closest feel to a nice double action revolver that I like. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I just looked at the AL391 listed in the classifieds. Good price on an excellent quality Beretta autoloader!
