quote:I never thought it would come to this but I guess I and a lot of my co-workers are going to have a choice to make soon for their home defense long gun. A 10rd AR or a 6-8rd pump (not auto) 12ga. As much as I laughed at the VP's incredibly stupid "get a double barrel 12 and fire a couple of blind shots" HD theory, seems I'm not too far behind.
One of the many issues we're dealing with here in CO right now is the shotgun capacity problem. It's a problem because you can fit a couple fistfulls of mini slugs in a "5 round receiver". Something to take a look at- hopefully you guys aren't stuck with the "readily modified" language that's effectively banning all shotguns in CO if HB1224 passes.
As far as dummies go, I bought a box of 25 for 20 or 30 bucks on Amazon- they're out there. The aluminum ones are weighted and a bit nicer, but I'm doing just fine practicing/training with the lighter plastic dummies so far. Truth be told, it's a little harder to load with the lightweight dummies- they seem to want to pop out of my hand more easily when I do the "grab 4" weakhand reloads. But I have gotten down to 6.5-7 seconds shot to shot time for 8 rounds though, so this thread and a lot of dryfire practice in the kitchen of my shitty little apartment is paying off so far.
