RE: Are these legal.

In any case, the device pictured appears to me to simply be a spring - designed to hold the trigger back. On a semi-auto, as we all know, the trigger must be pulled each time the weapon is to fire....

RE: so called accuracy loads

Ditto. The "accuracy load" is only a starting point (or, at least one data point). It is, for me, only an approximate indication....nothing more.

RE: Scope mounting height

Interesting thread. I must disagree as to the non-desirability of having the centre of the sights (or scope) coincide exactly with the centre of the bore. Of course, this is impossible, but as a...

RE: How far will 12ga slug...

I agree that expansion of a 12 gauge slug is not nearly as important as with a rifle bullet. However, as to the concept that a slug is still traveling at "800 - 900" fps at 200 yards - this is very...

RE: 20" Barrel Too Short????

Shotguns, as it happens, burn all of their powder charge (thus, achieve maximum velocity), within the first 18" - 20" of barrel length. So, as Scott Gags said, you are not losing anything, from a...
