Tactical flashlights are becoming more popular to use with firearms these days. Military and law enforcement officers are the ones who particularly find them helpful when approaching a potentially dangerous situation. If they are approaching or looking for a suspect, it helps for them to have a tactical flashlight on their gun so they can see who they’re facing without having to take their hands off the weapon. Otherwise, they could end up shooting the wrong person and getting in big trouble for it.
The Remington 870 is a great pump action shotgun. Sometimes users will want to attach a sling to their shotgun for a couple of reasons. Either they’ll use the sling to help give them stability while they’re aiming or they’ll simply use the sling to carry the shotgun on their backside while they’re not using it. The only problem is the Remington 870 does not come with an adequate forward sling mount so you can attach a sling. Therefore, you’ll have to purchase the sling mount or sling swivels separately. But that’s okay because these forward sling mounts are not expensive and they have a long lifespan.
The Remington 870 Express Youth Pump Action shotgun is a 20-gauge special that not too many people know about. Of course, most people are familiar with the Remington 870 shotgun model because it has been around for roughly 60 years. The 12-gauge Express, however, is what most people are familiar with. The Express Youth Pump Action is a 20-gauge with a design that’s proved reliability over the years. It has great versatility and shooting characteristics. The slide-action performance of the 870 Express Youth gives you fantastic reliability and dependability while you’re shooting the weapon. If you’ve ever used a Remington 870 before, then you’ll love the look and feel of the Remington 870 Express Youth because they are very similar in both design and quality.
Remington 870 Express Youth is perfect choice for youth or lady.
Thanks to my friend Igor Lytvynenko for this article.
There are a lot of interesting articles in this blog, but there is not much information about the famous Benelli M2 shotgun. I want to fix this and share my experiences of using this beauty throughout several shooting seasons. I have used the Benelli M2 during 25 matches in Ukraine and abroad, so I have the knowledge to tell you about it.
But first, let me put a little disclaimer out there. This article is not for newbies and I won’t start describing how to prepare the Benelli M2 for practical shooting right out of the box. I am not going to describe upgrades, bells and whistles. Instead, I will describe the important elements of fine tuning, the problems I’ve found and the ways to fix them. Some of the issues are very typical and obvious but I will describe them anyway. Some of the issues are very interesting as well.
If you own a Remington 12-gauge shotgun, then you are probably interested in more choke tubes so you can shape how your shots are going to spread after they leave the bore. The importance of adding a choke tube to a shotgun is so you can add more constriction to your shots. Otherwise, the shots will just spread wide as soon as they leave the bore and this will make it very difficult to aim at small targets that are in your line of fire. To install a choke tube into the bore of your shotgun’s barrel, you need the right choke tubes and installation tools in order to make sure that it is done right.
As you know, I am a very active competitive shooter. I mostly participate in practical shotgun shooting matches such as the IPSC (International Practical Shooting Confederation). I have used the Benelli Supernova in competitions but decided to go back to the Remington 870 this year. The long 28-inch barrel is perfect for that purpose. It has replaceable chokes and the barrel is long enough for all types of targets. I am going to use the short barrel for home defense and the tactical shotgun for shooting matches.
A couple of words about my brand new Remington 870 Combo. As always, it comes in a simple carton box. The shotgun comes with the barrel removed. You will find two barrels inside: the 28-inch ventilated rib barrel with the modified choke installed and with bead sight, and the 20-inch barrel with rifle sight. There is also an instruction book, lock, magazine plug, and choke tube wrench.
The lock is a little different from the one which I got in 2008. Also, the new stock and forend are made of very nice wood. The laminate wood stock and forend on my first shotgun had a light brown color and looked cheaper. The current set has a dark brown color and looks and feels like real wood
The ATI Top Folding Stock for pump-action shotguns looks like a copy of the old Remington law enforcement top folding stock. However, the big difference is that it’s made out of plastic. These plastic parts are a disadvantage to the stock while its compact size is an advantage.
The neat thing about owning a shotgun is that you can reload your own ammunition shells for it. This doesn’t refer to reloading the weapon by putting new shells into the shotgun’s chamber. Shotgun ammunition reloading is when you fill the empty shotshells back up with the elements that make them work such as primer, gunpowder, pellets, wad and so on. Users often want to do this to save money from having to purchase the expensive factory preloaded shells. However, the hardest part for a newbie is learning how to perform the shell reloading process. It requires someone who can give great attention to every minute detail. This will ensure that the ammunition you prepare is safe and reliable for shooting from your shotgun.
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.
My friend from Poland told me that they bought several Benelli Supernova shotguns for their shooting club. Two new Benelli Supernova shotguns had the same problem after just few weeks of use – broken Bolt Latch.
