...was discussing ye olde scattergun with a friend of mine and he had the following comments which he said I could post here:

I have taken a few shotgun classes.  Some of the instructors were rather minimalistic on add-ons, others were full on Gear Queers.  I had a lot of the crap like butt cuff and sidesaddles, etc on, now all I have is a sling.  I do think a lighted fore end is a good choice but that's about it.
 
I shoot faster with the bead and I can hit man sized target COM past 40 yards so I don't have ghost rings.  I think that's a personal call. If you go the bead route you must have a shotgun that fits you though.  I prefer wood stocks to synthetic as you can carve them till they fit you.
 
I'm not a fan of the select load concept or the side saddle.  From doing a lot of shotgun matches, if you go dry on a shotgun you should draw a handgun.  You should have a reload in case everything goes to shit and  you don't have a handgun, but odds are you are in deep shit if you go through 7 or 8 rounds of buckshot and still have bad guys. Reloading a shotgun is s l o w.  You're about as screwed as a guy with a dry J frame and a speed strip in the middle of a gunfight.  I know the mantra is to top off the shotgun from the side saddle as you shoot, but I'll believe that works the day I see a video of a guy in a gunfight doing a tac load.

I don't think I will have the awareness or need to do a select load.  I do carry extra shells, on a belt holder attached to the stock with velcro.  In a pinch I can load from it on the stock, otherwise I can clip it on my pants and be good to go.  I have toyed with carrying all my extra ammo as slugs, so I could opt to select load with it,  or if i do run dry, I don't think anyone will bitch about being hit with a slug instead of buckshot.   .  Stuff to think about and play."

Let's see where it goes.

Nice shotty....It's on my wish list... (hint, hint)



Here's a link for more specifics:

Add a sling and I'm good to go.   I'm slowing converting to the slug only camp.

Anything too close and buckshot acts like a slug...anything too far and buckshot won't stop them.
