    Bullet Hole
  1. I bought a Sig 225 from Greg back in 98 or so for about 400 dollars. His basement was like a gun warehouse with an incredible variety of merchandise. Greg told me that once in a while he would fire one or two shots in his basement to try out a handgun. His own indoor range without ventilation of course, lol.
  2. Navy Arms in Ridgefield where you could simply handle the numerous milsurp rifles on your own without a salesman handing them to you. That shop had everything including modern stuff. I bought a glock 19 at that place, second gun I ever bought.
  3. I think you are right, I tried to imagine racking the pump using the strap as a makeshift vertical grip on my shockwave and the angle felt all wrong. I think it has to do with the fact that the shockwave grip is more or less horizontal and it makes for some very awkward mechanics with a vertical foregrip. All that being said it seems that a vertical grip would make much more sense on a super compact with no stock and a traditional pistol grip like the Serbu or the Mossberg Compact Cruiser. Here the two grips would be complementary. arms / Compact Cruiser® AOW 500 Compact Cruiser AOW #51697
  4. Recoil wise or more difficult to aim? You are right on the cool factor though; Mossberg must have gotten tired of Serbu making money with their Super Shorty based on the 500 platform and just created their own version in the compact cruiser aow's.
  5. The Black aces has a vertical grip (as well as a brace) and it is NJ legal. http://store.rtsponline.com/black-aces-tactical-black-aces-tactical-pro-series-11091546.html
  6. Do you know if that was in a formal letter like the original approval? Serbu markets the whole pump handle assembly to the shockwave market. "Made by Serbu Firearms from both Remington/Mossberg parts in addition to our own manufactured parts. Compatible with either Remington 870 shotgun or Mossberg 500/590 (including shockwave models)." https://serbu.com/collections/super-shorty-accessories/products/serbu-pump-handle-cocking-slide-assembly
  7. It would seem to be helpful if using the "push-pull" technique to control recoil. Mossberg seems to have copied it from Serbu for use on their Compact Cruiser AOW's. http://www.mossberg.com/category/series/compact-cruiser-aow/
  8. ...for the buckshot that you have to buy from them. I've been to Longshot twice and never had an issue using Remington and Rio double-aught low recoil buckshot. Today I noticed that the website limits shotguns to slugs only and when I called was told that they had changed the range rules. You can still use your own slugs but if you want to shoot buckshot you have to buy it from them and they only approve Winchester Ranger buckshot. I also asked if you could simply bring in the "approved ammo" from outside and could not get a straight answer.
  9. Pull ups are great for grip among other things.
  10. Hopefully this will encourage more citizens to get off their butts and obtain their cwl so they can bypass the 3 day waiting period.
  11. Reduced recoil esp in a Shockwave or Tac 14 platform.
  12. Yes I ordered and had no issues. Free shipping with the coupon too.

  14. I just picked up my Shockwave in FDE from Jack this morning and I must say I concur with the reviews in this thread; he's a great guy to do business with. We had a hiccup with the Nics problems last week but Jack kept on top of it and kept me updated throughout. Couldn't ask for better customer service. With those dogs I'm not really sure he needs any guns for home defense.
  15. Paul Harrell has a pretty good analysis of the merits of using birdshot for home defense. His conclusion is that it is fine as long as you use the more powerful birdshot loads.
