      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

      Moderation Team Change   06/16/2017

      After fifteen years of volunteer moderation at SA, I will no longer be part of the moderation team. The decision to step aside is mine, and has been some time in the works but we did not wish to announce it in advance for a number of reasons. It's been fun, but I need my time back for other purposes now. The Underdawg admin account will not be monitored until further notice, as I will be relinquishing control of it along with my administrative privileges. Zapata will continue on as a moderator, and any concerns or issues can be directed to that account or to the Editor until further notice. Anyone interested in helping moderate the forums should reach out to Scot by sending a PM to the Editor account. Please note that I am not leaving the community, I am merely stepping aside from Admin responsibilities and privileges on the site.

New shotgun thread, per bmiller

181 posts in this topic

At last, a gun thread that even the UK anarchists can relate to.

 

Like Dorado says,if it doesn't fit you, its waste of time and money.

 

Beretta silver pigeon, it fitted the first time and that was the main choice.

 

Anybody got any views on barrel length for different disciplines?

Interesting to me how many people share interests here. Beretta for me too, no US supporters here of the brand ? Shot a Browning once and liked it also. Game season has started, walked/rode past a few shoots on Saturday and Sunday, great to see the dogs out working.

Have shot a Browning and its Miroku equivalent, both nice guns as well. Just picked up a newer model Bettonsoli for fun day clay shooting.

 

Agreed, its good to see the working dogs out for the season.

 

Deer might start to be popular soon, especially if they increase the numbers up to 500,000 a year. (just a lot of hoops to jump through for the gun though)

Remington 1100 12ga. (mine).....

Remington 1100 20ga. (mine and kids).....

Remington 1100 20ga. Youth Special with about 3 stocks as modified as Grabs Jr grew up, and now used by the 10 yr old Grabette Jr. (aka Honeybadger thanks EM).....

Just went halves w/ Jr. in his Benelli Nova pump 12ga. to keep his filthy hands off my 1100....although with it being good for 3 1/2" maybe he'll let me use it duck hunting sometimes :P

 

BTW all the 1100's over 25 yrs. old

 

 

I've heard good things about the Benelli Nova, how do you like it?

 

Like I said this is Jr's new 12ga......he shot dove with it earlier this year, and he's liking it....I'm so used to my 1100 I wasn't that fired up for it (no pun intended) definitely a bit lighter than the 870 Express he also looked at which I was not real impressed with ( is not in the same category as Remington's old Wingmaster).....recoil not too bad at all....and I think it's gonna be a fine duck gun, can be broken down in a heartbeat, and the rubberized camo really looks like it will make the gun durable out there in the crap....like I said the 3 1/2" option will also be nice.....he's looking forward to using it for turkey hunting also.

 

In summary, we're not finesse guys, we are pretty hard on equipment, although we do take care of what we use, as is obvious from the longevity of our other shotguns..... really not into the "I need an upgrade" type deal, if our shit is working fine we just keep using it. The Nova looks like it's gonna fit right in with that mindset so far, this coming winter will test that early opinion.

AA-12 US military grade, fully automatic shotgun, recoiless, stainless construction, 30 or 40 round drum mags, an assortment of really nasty ammo, from projectile grenades, armor piercing, go through a wall and then explode rounds, or a standard 12 gauge. You can fire 30 rounds in about 4 seconds. Try to count to thirty in 4 seconds!

 

 

Damn, and I thought I was the shit with my Stainless Marine. :huh:

 

 

I think this guy wins! :D

 

Hands down!! Love to see a piccy of that baby!!

 

 

To hell with that, I want to shoot it! :)

 

Imagine what your shoulder would feel like after shooting 30 rounds of 00 Buck, on full auto with that puppy! :o

 

On the other hand, imagine what it would do to a boatload of Somali Pirates! B)

 

says its recoiless. Must use all the expended energy in the chambering of the next round

I'd put it on my wish list, but short of joining the forces, don't think i'll ever see one. :( Something tells me I met get thrown out of the clay course as well. :P

 

Edit

 

I can see of few more issues with this one.

 

A shotgun is, broadly speaking for certification purposes, a smooth-barrelled gun which discharges a number of pellets, rather than a single projectile, when it is fired. Shotguns held on a SGC must not be capable of holding more than three cartridges in total. They may be single barrel, double barrel, pump action or semi-automatic, but the three cartridge limit still applies and the barrel(s) must be longer than 24 inches. Pumps and semi-autos must be longer than 40 inches overall.

Beretta 92FS is heavy, but a great 9mm. Worst comes to worst you can throw it at someone.

 

Colt's are good. I lean to HK's and Glock 17's.

Stay the F*ck away from anything labeled "Davis Industries" - I've got scars on my right thumb from the slide on a nasty little Davis .380 I bought new for $220.00 - fargin' slide split near the rails after only 200 rds.

 

I hacksawed the miserable thing in half so nobody ELSE would give blood to a shitty design and implementation.

Great home-defense hand-cannon. Take a look at the personal defense .410 rounds for it - they are 3 copper disks backed up by BBs.

 

Taurus, btw - has a lifelong customer in me - I bought a small 9-shot .22 revolver just for plinking/teaching handgun safety to family & friends, and had a problem w/the timing of the cylinder advance mechanism.

 

I called Taurus, got a person, who gave me an RMA #, sent the pistol back (I paid shipping) and two weeks later got my pistol back w/a trigger that felt better than ANY professionally worked revolver I'd ever fired.

 

My cost? shipping to get the pistol back to Taurus. They stand behind their stuff - and it's good stuff, especially considering the price point .

Somebody was asking about the Benelli Nova. I have a 12 ga. Use it as my swamp gun for ducks and geese. Never jams, ever. Easy to clean. Pretty indestructible. I consider it more of a tool than a work of art. Great go to gun for bigger birds!

 

I save the O/U's for upland and clays.

So, I inherited a shotgun from my father-in-law, but living in Canukistan I am not allowed to love it like I want to ...

The gun is a custom 3 barreled made by Krupp between WW1 and WW2. The top 2 barrels are 12 Ga and rifled. The bottom barrel is sized for a 303. The entire barrel is engraved, including the original owner's name. The pin which pops out to break the barrels down is in the middle of a flower design and you cannot see the pin when it is withdrawn.

 

It was designed to be an elephant gun. He lived in the interior of Sudan (in Wau) and was a trader and the real deal the great white hunter. he was a cabin boy in the Med. .. jumped ship in Egypt at the age of 15 and built a trading business in the MFN.

 

It is an heirloom and in safe storage with firing pins removed. If I can get to it in the next few days, I'll send some pictures.

Hey C

 

I'm sure you probably know this, but that's a drilling (pronounced dry ling = 3 barrels)

The barrels are Krupp steel and are "proofed" by them but the gun could have possibly been made by many different

makers such as JP Sauer or Merkel etc... The guns are usually Germanic in origin but not always.

 

Break open the action and photo all the little emblems and proof marks stamped into the flat machined surfaces and some knowledgable gun nut will be able to decipher the guns pedigree.

 

These are very cool pieces and can be quite valuable :)

Yikes! The Mac 26 of handguns . . . :blink:

 

it's not a good .45 lc and it sure ain't much of a shotgun.

 

Not knocking Taurus though because they make a pretty decent gun and they've sold a bazillion of these.

Never seen one until it popped up in a search for the cartridges, its not exactly subtle, but at 10 feet I guess it'll work.

Cruel to be wackin' a large critter like that w/12ga slugs if'n you can't do the job properly in the first place w/.303. Not knockin' yer ancestor, just sayin'.

 

.....noted ivory hunter W. D. M. Bell, who shot 1,011 elephants using a 7×57mm rifle, when most ivory hunters were using larger-caliber rifles. Bell selected the cartridge for moderate recoil, and used 11-gram military full metal jacket bullets for reliable penetration. Bell sectioned an elephant skull to determine the size and location of the brain, and used careful aim to ensure bullet placement in the brain.

Friend of mine out West carries a Judge when elk/deer hunting, for bear and wolves. He used to carry a .44 mag but full size they are heavy. FWIW my .44 is a Taurus and it is a nice gun. It seems to like the Hornady LeveRevolution stuff ok and is legal here for handgun season.

how is our beloved cfc screwing you on the rifle? surely it would fall into the unrestricted classification on gauge and barrel length. if they don't know how to deal with it, have it documented by the rcmp. that's all the queen's cowboys are good for these days. or wait a bit for the registry to be finally scrapped and use it at your leisure.

 

are you licensed? that part isn't going away. if it ends up restricted, you can still play with it at the range. ontario laws are a bit more strict on restricted use and transport than other provinces.

how is our beloved cfc screwing you on the rifle? surely it would fall into the unrestricted classification on gauge and barrel length. if they don't know how to deal with it, have it documented by the rcmp. that's all the queen's cowboys are good for these days. or wait a bit for the registry to be finally scrapped and use it at your leisure.

 

are you licensed? that part isn't going away. if it ends up restricted, you can still play with it at the range. ontario laws are a bit more strict on restricted use and transport than other provinces.

 

i was at a range in Ontario, south of Hamilton two months ago and saw a nice collection of toys. You guys haven't been completely neutered yet...

Sorry to sidetrack this convo, but my neighborhood has seen a rash of home invasions lately so the wife wants guns in the house stat!!

 

Can you guys recommend a shotty that will do the job of home defence, but will be usable by my wife if needed while I am gone sailing? I was thinking Rem 870, but when panicked I am guessing an autoloader might be a better option for the Missus.

 

Thanks

MS

Somebody was asking about the Benelli Nova. I have a 12 ga. Use it as my swamp gun for ducks and geese. Never jams, ever. Easy to clean. Pretty indestructible. I consider it more of a tool than a work of art. Great go to gun for bigger birds!

 

I save the O/U's for upland and clays.

 

Supernova is even better.

Cluck Clucks and the deers hate it.

Beretta Xtrema 2 for the duck/goose blind.

Huglu 105fe OU for sporting clays and upland.

Remington 870 for everything else or spare for above.

 

Love them all, shotguns are my favorite type of firearm. Don't get me wrong rifles and pistols are fun, but if given the choice I'd rather break clays than shoot holes in paper.

So, I'm looking for an automatic shotgun that's good for skeet - recommendations anyone?

Mossy 590 pump. 8+1, GRP stock, great ergonomics, with a light, and stone-axe simple. If the wife bent it over my head tonight, I'd buy another one tomorrow.

 

Chinchester 1897 for Cowboy Action Shooting games.

 

In the back of the safe slumbers my beloved Benelli Super Montefeltro. If Timo gets his act together, I'll pull it out and busts some clays with it for the first time in decades.

 

Mr. Sq: First, get some formal training for you and your honey-bunch, NRA is a great resourse. This is a very involved and complicated subject. Then, many of the SD/ HD pros recommend a 20 gauge gas-operated semi-automatic with a youth stock. It has to fit both you and your wife. Mossberg's offering in the class has really impressed me. Luck.

Maverick 88 comes in 12 and 20 ga -- $178 new at WalMart ... Plus you won't feel bad when clearing into St Somewhere on your boat and a local gendarme confiscates it. Likewise a Highpoint automatic in 40 S&W-- $180 with a lifetime warranty.

KM, of all the shooting sorts, the shotgun is the one that is most individualistic. You don't aim a shotty: you point it. It has no rear sight - except for your eye. Your eye has got to be in the perfect position every time. Fit is VERY important.

 

Go to the range and rent some splatterguns: you'll know which one is right. For me, it was the Benelli.

Here's the thing a new semi on a beginners budget doesn't yield the greatest quality. You might be able to find a nice used semi. If that's the case here's a short list of good semi's that if you find used for a good price I'd jump on it:

 

Beretta 390, Xtrema 2 or A400(too new to find used at this point)

Remington 1100(might be the best value used) or the new Versa Max

Mossberg 930

Browning... any model

 

If you can't find a deal on a used semi I'd recommend a pump, remmy 870 or mossy 500. Two reasons, one is that using a pump will allow you to take your time and be more deliberate with shots. The second is once you upgrade to a nice semi you'll have a good spare/HD shotty.

We shoot sporting clays with the long barrel + skeet choke on the Maverick 88. Great practice ... if you can break the first one, rack the action and knock down the second you'll be a tough customer when it comes to defending your castle. We keep the 18" barrel on it at home. Use #7s or 8s at the range. #1 to #4 buck at home.

12 ga semi

12 ga OU

20 ga pump

How's the weekend of the 14-15th of July? That'll give me time to sneak up there and practice. We doing Trap? Skeet was my game -- as in the past tense. Don't want to be embarrassed any more than necessary. Do you know if BBB still requires the 7/8 oz light loads? They used to frown on splattering the occasional semi.

 

Maddog and Point might be up for it. Anybody else is of course welcome. Make sure you invite Boothy. That'll make him all warm and fuzzy out there in his own private, soggy Idaho.

Base shotgun is called an Akdal (model is MKA-1919), costs about $600. Mine was customized by a company called Firebird Precision, and costs... more :blink:

 

Haven't shot mine yet (just picked it up a couple hours ago), but landed on it after watching 3-gun Saigas puke all over themselves, while the Akdals run and run and run.

This morning there was a sh!tbox in the middle of a cloverleaf on-ramp -- 50 feet into the ice plant. And it looked like the idiot was even able to roll it once or twice. Besides 3/4 of gallon of Mexico's Worst tequila, I can't figure out how it was managed.
