    So, I am considering getting back into handloading/reloading, and I would like to include shotshell reloading this time around. I prefer to buy "very good" equipment, say about a 7-8 on a quality scale of 1 to 10. I don't need the ultimate high-end professional stuff. I also prefer new...

    Has anyone else had the chance to buy a Hatfield 12 gauge single shot shotgun from wallymart for 99.95? I just got one the other day. Seem very solid built reminds me of the old New England firearms single. Smooth bore no choke and no necked down barrel. Folds for storage too. Great bug out...

    Hey all, I know some of you have seen the Rem 870 I recently finsihed, but I said I'd keep you updated on the Stevens that was still in the works....well it's all done. Specs: Custom Birdshead grip and shortened forend. Stained black walnut. Chopped, polished and crowned 9.5" barrels Polished...

    Well it's been a month since I had to take apart my shotgun. I was about take it to a gunsmith to reassemble it because I thought my breech bolt would not go into the gun. Last night I realized that it wasn't that, it was the one of the action bar of the forend tube assembly was bent. The...

    With all the panic going around, I have put my ammunition buying on the back burner and focused on other preps. I have still occasionally picked up some 12 ga shells, as they are available and prices haven't skyrocketed. However, 00 buck has been impossible to find, unless you are willing to pay...

    Just done some penetration testing on 12 gauge shotgun slugs for Survival Route. Thought you guys might find this interesting. Tested two types of Federal, one Remington, and the more exotic Nobelsport Brenneke. The target was some box sections. Total of 4 sheets of 1/8 inch steel. Needless...

    I knew it would be bad after the elections. "I" would have bought alot before the panic if I had the money at the time. But I never pictured anything like this. Last week, my Dad got his CCW permit. He had to qualify with his Browning Buckmark .22, since we haven't got any other handgun right...

    Man this bad boy looks sweet. Its short, can carry 15 shells and it looks to operate rather well on youtube. With that being said, it appears to be around $1000 right now and has a waiting list with as many people as there are in my town :) Has anyone on here had a chance to shoot this...

    Hey, Im turning 18 soon and I was wondering what shotgun you would recommend out of these choices. Remington 870 Mossberg 500 interstate arms defender. What would you choose, and what model in particular.
  10. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Man oh man, what a weekend. In a previous article we talked about survivalism as an experience and not just a theory. This past weekend was to expand my experience, and to improve upon my theories. Part of my prepping for SHTF / TEOTWAWKI includes going to the Bug Out Location for a couple of...

    In my limited research, I've found that the .22 & the 12GA are the two most common guns discussed as survival tools. I'm going to pick up a Mossberg 500 without a doubt. It's a no-brainer to have one in the home and out in the sticks. I understand that a 12GA can be converted to shoot .22...

    Pump-Shotgun Wedding There's no reason NOT to have at least one shotgun around if you're a serious prepper or survivalist.. Since there are so many excellent new shotguns available for well under $250 out there it's hard to pick just one! Here's a few that are currently available...

    I just traded some old baseball cards for a Hatsan Escort pump action 12 gauge, don't worry the baseball cards were pretty worthless, but I have never heard of the name brand. The shotgun itself is in good condition, barrel looks brand new, action pretty smooth, but it occasionally sticks a...

    Just picked up a Stoeger P350 12ga w/ a 18.5" barrel today from a local pawn shop for $150. Anyone have any experience w/ the Stoeger guns? I know that they were bought by Beretta back in 2000 which gives me some sense of security. I'm taking it to the range today and picked up a couple of...

    My nephew sells me these tiny little plastic jars, 4 for $1, which are perfect for all sorts of stuff. They're just about the same size as a 12 gauge shell, soft durable plastic with waterproof caps. He works at a little local smoke shop where they sell tobacco and knives and stuff. But inside...

    I have been thinking about designing a light weight, bolt action rifle for wilderness survival. Something to take backpacking, store in car, etc. maybe store survival kit in stock. I have a few other ideas to add but I dont want to give it all way

    Wanted to show you guys this new toy. My brother is a Saiga 12 dealer and was chosen to be one of the distributors for the 12 gauge MKA 1919 that are going to begin importation into the United States. They will be selling for around $800. Thats a lot cheaper than a converted S12. They come with...

    A few months ago I told my dad I was looking for a gun. My dad has always been a "gun nut" :-) I don't know how many guns he has but it's got to be over 50. He goes to the range to shoot probably 4 times a week. So he was tickled pink when I asked him and he gave me an old 22 Rifle that my...

    I use a 12ga with a fully rifled barrel... it's a Mossberg model 695. I have spent an absurd amount of money fueling that gun... sabot slugs currently sell for about $3 a piece. I decided that this gun is my designated SHTF firearm, as it is accurate, packs a punch and needs minimal...

    today, i went to the range and tried out some deer slugs in the trusty old ithaca model 37 w/ 30" ribbed barrel and full choke. although this is not the first time i've shot slugs through this gun, it was the most extensive session i had with it: 15 rds of winlite REDUCED RECOIL slugs and my arm...
