Here are some awesome pictures of me and my new Remington 870. Thanks to Anzhe Veter for them.
The Brownells 12-Gauge 3-Gun Remington Choke Tube Set is designed specifically for all 12-gauge Remington pump-action and semi-auto shotguns. This particular choke tube set is suitable for 3-Gun competitions because it gives users the ability to choose which choke tube they want for a given stage. The choke tubes included in this set are a modified choke tube, an improved cylinder choke tube, and a full choke tube.
This is the first article about load-4 belts for Practical Shooting (IPSC, 3-Gun, USPSA). It is going to be interesting for competitive shooters.
I asked owners or people close to the companies to tell about their products. Let’s start with 3 popular belts: King Competition Products, EZload and Z-Gun. I have sent requests to Invictus and Safariland, waiting for their answers.
Readers of the blog know that I like to often participate in dynamic/practical shotgun shooting competitions (they have different names such as the International Practical Shooting Confederation, United States Practical Shooting Association, 3-Gun Nation, International Defense Pistol Association, etc).
Such competitions are the best way to check your skills under stress. You need to move fast from one shooting position to another, load your shotgun quickly and shoot from various positions at different targets at a variety of distances with all types of common shotgun ammunition: birdshot, buckshot, and slugs.
The most popular dynamic shooting sport in the USA is 3-Gun Nation. That is why I often receive questions about semi-auto shotguns because they are mostly used in 3-Gun.
What is 3-Gun competition?
There are many types of shooting competitions out there for gun enthusiasts to take part in. But one particular competition that is getting a lot of attention is the 3-gun competition. This is where competitors have to use 3 different types of firearms such as a rifle, shotgun, and pistol. The average shooter is usually pretty good with one particular firearm but not so good with the others. This makes 3-gun a real challenge because it tests their skills with all three firearms and it requires different skill sets in order to win the competition.
Why Benelli M2?
Most of the shooters in this sport use Benelli M2 or Beretta 1301 Competition shotguns. Beretta 1301 comes with an oversized safety, bolt handle and bolt release button from the factory. The Benelli M2 shotgun can be enhanced with aftermarket parts.
My friends who use semi-auto shotguns are fans of the Benelli M2. That is why this post will be about the Benelli M2 shotgun upgrades, accessories, and modifications for 3-Gun and practical shooting.
Special thanks to my friends: Igor, Oleg, Maxim, Oleg and Patrick for help :)
Swinging platform is another piece of equipment which is used in Practical Shooting. Swinging platform is not stable and the main challenge is to be able to stand still and shoot accurately while recoile makes platform unstable. Very good equipment to train the proper shooting stance.
Practical shooting is very interesting. It enables shooters to test their skills and firearms. When you shoot under stress, you do mistakes, you see what malfunctions can happen. This is priceless experience.
There are many static and moving targets in Practical Shooting (USPSA and IPSC). Swingers are very popular moving target:
