Just bought a Weaver rail for my old 500A Mossberg 12ga, so I could mount my new T1 on it. Thought I would take a pic and throw it up here on this forum.
Talk about the ultimate shotgun sight!!! Excellent It's a dandy!!!

Looks good Mark.  Gonna use that in place of the axe?
 
My son has a Burris Fast Fire we have been wondering what to do with - like your idea!

Thanks, Craig. 
The T1 will doing double duty for me on my shotgun and my AR, once I get a Larue mount from our friends at SWFA.

Federal Vital Shock #00 groups pretty well and thats what's in it now, Dale. This is purely a HD shotgun, in need of a flashlight and mount.
 
I'm thinking of going with #1 buck shot after reading some ballistic articles.
I welcome your comments and recommendations.

I had read somewhere as well about #1 Mark.  Here is an excerpt I read on-line - always up for a discussion!
 

12 Gauge Shotshell Ammunition
For personal defense and law enforcement applications, the International Wound Ballistics Association advocates number 1 buckshot as being superior to all other buckshot sizes.

Number 1 buck is the smallest diameter shot that reliably and consistently penetrates more than 12 inches of standard ordnance gelatin when fired at typical shotgun engagement distances. A standard 2 ¾-inch 12 gauge shotshell contains 16 pellets of #1 buck. The total combined cross sectional area of the 16 pellets is 1.13 square inches. Compared to the total combined cross sectional area of the nine pellets in a standard #00 (double-aught) buck shotshell (0.77 square inches), the # 1 buck shotshell has the capacity to produce over 30 percent more potentially effective wound trauma.

In all shotshell loads, number 1 buckshot produces more potentially effective wound trauma than either #00 or #000 buck. In addition, number 1 buck is less likely to over-penetrate and exit an attacker's body.

For home defense applications a standard velocity 2 ¾-inch #1 buck shotshell (16 pellet payload) from Federal, Remington or Winchester is your best choice.

Exact article I was referring to, Craig. Thanks!
 
I'm using 9 pellet, #00 Power Shock, NOT Vital Shock, as I mentioned earlier. Not sure it matters.

That is a nice set up.
Surefire makes a nice set up for your gun that includes a forend.

Thank you, Brother. I like Surefire gear. And I'll look into that.   
I would like to change out the stock too. The factory stock sucks.
Have you all seen the Hogue Overmolded stocks?

I have handled a few guns that had them. The soft inserts allow for a good grip.
Hogue has always made good handgun grips IMO. I'm sure the stocks are top quality, too.
It looks like the Surefire forend has the soft rubber inserts for a secure hold, too.

i have a hogue overmolded stock on my .375H&H and its gotta be the nicest  composite stock ive handled, but im sure that for more money their are probably others that are better. im sure that companies like h-s prescision and companies like that are better, but i wouldnt know i havent handled any of those before.

Sorry Mark, your pistol picture was in the way - was referring to the mag extender for your Mossberg.
 
p.s.  Alice??  Cute name.

I'm sorry. 
The Mossy is just 12ga, 500A "Persuader", with a 8 round capacity.

had a class from Awerbach long time ago -- he preffered slugs.
just like handguns its getting enough reloads to practice , do you reload shotgun, if so-- might try a ww yellow wad with 16 -19 grs universal, OO or OOO buck, or #1 if so inclined. and Ballistic Products buffer great practice round. will you be testing any of the sabot slugs, or regular or just stoke it with 00 or #1's -- personally like 3" copper plated buffered 000-- 9 70 gr 9mm rounds going down the hallway at the same time at 1300 fps. also give greater range than #4 or #1 if outdoors,

I've only used buck shot, at this point, Dale. No reloading gear for it ...YET.
Always said I would never reload for a scatter gun or an AR.
(I just picked up some .223 dies last week.) Roll Eyes
 
I've considered slugs as well, but only have this factory smooth bore barrel at present.
Thank for your comments.

a lot of slug loads are for smoothbore, can't wait to try Federals new offerings, especially Truball to see if they solved some of the badmiton birdie problems. have you shot it much, sometimes dot sights give a really high head position giving the cheek a real whack.
