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 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.
What is Tritium night sight?
If you are someone who wants to have better shooting sight with your shotgun at nighttime, then Tritium night sights are what you’ll want to install onto it. These particular sights have the ability to illuminate on their own by relying on a small amount of tritium gas that glows. This glowing gas creates a bright dot which you can see in dark or dim areas. The tritium gas should be able to last you for 10-12 years before you have to replace it. Tritium night sights are the opposite of fiber optic sights, which are helpful for aiming in the daylight. The night sight can replace the current front sight of your weapon and give it a focusing ability that it didn’t have before.
One of the biggest benefits of having a tritium night sight for your shotgun is that you don’t have to use batteries with it. This will save you a lot of money if you frequently go shooting at night. Other kinds of sights, like red dot sights, cost people a lot of money each year in batteries alone. Plus, they need to be switched on when you want to use them and the tritium night sights glow all the time. Tritium night sights do not require any light exposure and their exterior is durable enough to sustain many harsh environmental conditions. Most of the tritium night sights are made in the United States by American gun parts manufacturers. So, you can be sure you’re getting the very best sight possible.

Read first part here: Review of the 4 Pistol Grips for the Remington 870 Shotgun
Thanks to Synchronizor for this detailed review!
There are three controls that an 870 user manipulates with their shooting hand: the trigger, the safety switch, and the slide release. With the traditional semi-grip shotgun stocks that the 870 was designed to use, these controls are all easy to reach and manipulate. Pistol grips, whether part of a stock or stand-alone, can have a significant effect on how – and how easily – these controls are manipulated. Pistol grips rarely interfere with the gun’ s trigger for obvious reasons, but they can – and frequently do – make working the safety or slide release slower or more difficult.
The 870’ s cross-bolt safety is located right behind the trigger, and with a traditional stock that’ s no wider than the receiver and doesn’ t enclose the rear of the trigger guard, it is possible to apply pressure on the safety with the side of the finger, rather than the tip. This allows the user to disengage the safety while keeping their fingertip on or very near the trigger, so a shot can be made virtually immediately. With traditional stocks, the safety is also fairly easily reached with the thumb or middle finger for re-engagement, or for disengagement in the case of left-handed shooters using an 870 with a right-handed safety switch.

I won’t get into when, where, and for what I think pistol grips should and shouldn’t be used, because it would just add several thousand more words to what is already a massive piece. I’ll simply say that while they have many downsides, and a fixed or folding stock will be a better choice for many situations, pistol-gripped shotguns do have their place. They’re very compact & maneuverable, and (usually) lighter than a full stock, which can be beneficial on a gun that’s used more as a tool than a weapon, or one that needs to be stored or deployed in very tight spaces. They’re also cool; a lot of folks (myself included) buy a pistol grips just for fun, and that’s a perfectly legitimate reason to own one.
The Froglube CLP is an interesting cleaner, lubricant, and preservative. It is fairly new, but has already become a very popular gun oil. The Froglube was developed by a retired Navy Seal.
The main difference with this gun oil is its non-toxic formula and smell. It is not a chemical smell, but rather a very natural peppermint and wintergreen smell. The smell is stronger than the smell of the
Breakfree CLP oil. I like the Breakfree CLP for in-house use because it has a very light smell.
It is made of frogs as you can read from its name… just kidding! There are rumors that it’s made of coconut oil with some additions, but these are just rumors.
What is really important is that it is safe when Froglube gets onto your skin. It is safe for you and it is environment-friendly.
I bought a kit with the CLP paste, CLP liquid, and a microfiber. The paste is thick but melts when applied to a hot metal. The paste is easier for coating surfaces, while the liquid is better for cleaning. However, they both work great. Use a microfiber towel to remove excess Froglube, otherwise, it will attract dirt and dust.
