  1. Dunno, don't have any direct experience with shotgun magazines. Depends how "squishy" your shotshells are, I guess. Did find this discussion from elsewhere though: https://www.vepr.org/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=5870
  2. It's legal to purchase a *LONG GUN* (not handguns) out of state. The transfer will have to be *FROM AN FFL* (not a private seller) and will have to adhere to legal requirements of both the state the transfer is taking place in (PA) and the transferee's home state (NJ). Just because it's legal doesn't mean each and every FFL at the PA show is obligated to do a NJ transfer. Some may not want to deal with the hassle. You'll have to ask. Take your NJ FID card and several NJ COE forms (https://www.njsp.org/firearms/pdf/sp-634_20180914.pdf) with you in case you do find the long gun you want from an FFL who is willing to do a transfer to a NJ resident. Also take a case so you can transport it back home legally (or lock it in the trunk). There is still a NICS check - you'll go through the NATIONAL instant check, which really is near instant, as opposed to the NJ NICS check which is routed through the NJSP office which usually only has a couple of people handling checks for the entire state of NJ.
  3. I'm actually pro-abortion rights (although I wish more attention was given to making contraception easier for everyone involved), but couldn't resist:
  4. You may want to periodically check any shotshells that you have loaded inside mags for long periods of time - it's possible for the shotshells to get ovalized from the magazine spring pressure to the point where they won't chamber.
  5. Thanks @Brisco - I had also heard about them previously but wasn't remembering them. I'll pass them on.
  6. Worked fine for ~5 years until recently.
  7. Gun already has an aftermarket slide which is lighter than stock, don't think friction is the issue: https://www.cwaccessories.com/ Again, any recommendations for a gunsmith?
  8. Back to the original question: I have one, have had it for a couple of years. I like it, I don't regret buying it, and I have fun shooting it. Come out to a shotgun shoot and you'll likely see me shooting clays with it. It is *NOT* my choice for a HD weapon. Yes, it's compact and light, yes it's got impressive ammo capacity (14 rds if using "normal" shells, 20+ if using mini shells). There's a downside to each of those attributes. Because it's so short, the muzzle end is essentially even with your support hand at the end of the pump motion. That's dangerous. You have to ensure you have a SOLID forward grip or loop. You can find stories of people shooting their support hand accidentally with the KSG. Because it's light, perceived recoil is much stouter. I tried some turkey loads in it once. ONCE. Not pleasant. Depending on your body mass you may find that 00 buckshot rings your bell considerably more than a larger shotgun. 14 shotshell capacity is a lot, but it comes with the price of multiple magazine tube administration. There are 2 separate magazine tubes. You have to switch between them. If you run one tube dry, you have to switch to the other tube *BEFORE* you eject the last shell from the first tube, or else you're going to get a "click" the next time you pull the trigger. If (heaven forbid) you get into a situation where you have to fire more than 7 rounds under duress are you going to remember to hit that tube switch immediately after firing, and before ejecting, round #7? Oh BTW, that magazine tube switch has a "neutral" position that doesn't allow *EITHER* of the tubes to dispense shells. Yup, you guessed it, the neutral position is in the middle of the left and right tube positions. Hope the switch doesn't ever get set there accidentally when you don't want it to be. The ejection port and the magazine tube heads are in the same space at the bottom of the gun. It is quite difficult to load a shell into a tube while keeping the gun in a firing posture; to do so, you not only have to push a shell upwards into the bottom of the gun at an awkward vertical angle, but you also have to angle it horizontally to the left or right to go into the correct tube (unless you ran both tubes empty). Do you remember which tube you were firing from? Got to load to that same tube... I've given up trying to load the KSG while shouldered - I flip it upside down to load it, and loading is much slower compared to a conventional shotgun. Another annoyance is the shell keepers at the mouth of each magazine tube - they have a sharp corner that tends to catch and grab the fabric of glove fingers when I wear gloves.
  9. Depending on the ammo type used, YES: https://how-i-did-it.org/drywall/results.html Winchester Ranger 64g Power-Point (Soft point .223 ammo): Penetrated 1st "wall" of drywall, 2nd wall of drywall had fragments embedded but no total penetration, 3rd wall of drywall untouched Winchester 12-Gauge 00 Buckshot: Penetrated all 3 "walls" of drywall
  10. Jack agrees with something! OMG, this is the apocalypse!
  11. Looking for a recommendation for a gunsmith in/near Monmouth County for a friend. They have a GSG 1911 .22LR pistol which previously worked well but now has a lot of failures to feed/go into battery. They've cleaned it rigorously with no luck. They don't have the patience/temperament to try to diagnose the issue themselves.
  12. Well, you can get started with the front grip at least, which gets you mount points for a light: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Magpul-MAG496-BLK-Remington-870-Shotgun-M-LOK-Forend-Black/153549705473

  14. They’ve been a good friend to NJGF in the past, but alas I probably won’t be doing any transfers there now.
