    LB: I was at one of my LGS's yesterday and saw a Mossberg Shotgun, and was showing the girl behind the counter (Nice fully armed girl, named Julie) the difference between how it runs and a Rem 870. She understands the differences and pitfalls now,...

    I have some Federal .410 slugs that are 125 gr and running 1775 fps! That is above most .357 Magnum loads. I also have a bunch of Thug Slugs I got from BPI that are 125 gr with attached wads so they should be relatively accurate. I have a...

    OK I put this up but everyone ignored it. The guy wants a Stock on his pistol. This is not legal. Period. However the USA 1 Shot Pistol Brace doesn't attach to the pistol, the gun merely sits in it. It is the same as bracing the pistol...
