I think Turkey got the money from that a while back.

It is a new shotgun. Still has the packing grease.

I placed the order just before all of this kerfuffle happened. So am in the clear...

It's a tricky subject. I assume that buying a USA-made weapon in the age of Trump could be seen as a negative, too. I've seen longtime US gun sellers pander to the Trump base with all kinds of nasty offerings these days. For that price, I am not holding it against JaxTeller.

Took the thing apart and gave it the cursory pre-range cleaning.

Supposed to be in the 50s next week, and maybe I'll get some range time in.

Sounds like this is going to be the last nice day before rain and cold sets in. Made a range trip with a friend to sight in the muzzleloader. Took the shotgun with... Friend was amazed at the light weight and compact form..

Fired about 10 rounds - including two of the "less lethal" rounds. Recoil, as expected, is stout. None on the less lethal though.

Two targets after we were done sending the 8 rounds at it. Most of them from 8 yards or so.

The less lethal punched through the paper target, but did not make it through the heavy cardboard backing. The second round I fired went over top of the target and was not recovered.

Recommend this shotty, if you are in the market or have a 100 bucks burning a hole in your pocket.

Scatterguns are fun! If they weren't so loud, I would love to use one for home defense.
