Yep...at least twice a month with CAS plus maybe a couple of rounds of skeet or wobble from time to time at my local range...
Looking forward to shooting with Rolan a week from tomorrow at the Lead Mine Valley Shootout ...

Making the best of what ever comes our way
Forget that blind ambition and learn to trust your intuition
Plowing straight ahead come what may
And theres a cowboy in the jungle"
Cowboy, 1880s 3-Gun! Looks like fun!!!
I used to love shooting shotguns until I started shooting ARs. However, when I'm in the woods, I still love a shotgun because of its versatility and I can shoot in any direct with worrying about killing someone in the next county.

True regarding birdshot.
I have seen the after effects of a 12 gauge deer slug that bounced off the ground and traveled several hundred more yards before hitting a front door of a house.
It was my house. The hollow point of the slug was packed full of dirt.
40 or 50 grain bullets of varmint construction like the V-Max will generally fragment into pieces small enough that they will not retain sufficient energy to overcome aerodynamic drag and are quickly on the ground.
I'm sure a full metal jacket bullet, especially 30 caliber and larger, is a ricochet hazard.

Will do so today. Waterfowl hunting is coming soon and it's long past time to get my Vinci out for some warm ups, especially now that the state's outdoor shooting ban has been lifted.

I put some slugs through my Versa Max Tactical for the first time. It was also the first time I have ever fired slugs. I was surprised on how soft the recoil was.
Yes. Very fun. Recoil is not really notable.
Same here, fired some reduced recoil Rio 00 thru one of my two 870s yesterday. I try to shoot them every three or four months.
My club is thinking about introducing the shotgun into our steel matches next year, so I though I would build a new one.
I already have a few conventional pump guns, including a couple of 870's.
Since we do a lot of fun stuff at our steel shoots, including trying to come up with strange guns to shoot the events with, I decided to go with an 870DM and dress it up.
Last month I finished the build and sighted it in with slugs from the bench. It's rearrange-your-dental-work brutal from the bench but not bad at all when standing up.
Its a pussycat with birdshot and quite reasonable with buckshot.
Given Remington's reputation lately, I was surprised at how smooth the action was. I had no failures to feed, fire or eject while going through about 100 rounds of mixed ammo.
I had the limbsaver pad on for the bench. I wont be using it otherwise.
I also need to find an 18" removeable choke barrel instead of the 20 incher that I have on there.
The Bushnell red dot is just a place holder till I can come up with something better.
I've got a Mossberg jungle gun that's been sitting in the safe for years. I think its time to take it to the range.
