My M500 w/
-Knoxx Compstock
-UTG rail
-Sightmark Green Dot


I like how the Hogue grip matches the Compstock.  If I get get a M500 then I'll probably go with that combo.  :th_thicon_idea:

Here's my Maverick 88 with the old recoil reducing pistol grip Knoxx (that I keep beside the bed) & an old Marlin Model 43 that I cut down.

A cool thing about the Model 43 ;)

It does take about a minute to screw the barrel on & load, but eventually I'll make it work real fast. The gun is from the 20s, so I only shoot low recoil ammo through it.

I picked up a beat up 12GA Remington 11-48 & a Stevens 16GA pump a while back, but don't have any pics of them.  I'll probably make the 11-48 a SBS eventually.

And here's my Chinese 12GA Coach gun that stays on the other side of the bed.

This is my second. I got my first in the late 80's and kicked myself for over a decade for selling it. Everything I saw after was well out of my price range until I ran across this one about 3 yrs ago. It was too good a deal to pass up. I paid more for the one I bought new back in the 80's, than this one.

It's weighs too much and is overly complicated, so it a lot like me.  :th_thicon_lol:

Nice! Not easy to find one for a decent (or even reasonable) price any more.

I've standardized our house guns on 20 Ga. My wife is on 5'2" and weighs about 115, and she has never much cared for 12ga even in the 2 3/4" varieties.

This has been her house gun for a decade or more (Mossberg 500 with 18" barrel):



I recently bought a new 20ga for me (not a huge fan of the muzzle device, but wanted the short barrel), although mine is drilled and tapped, I haven't decided if I will put an optic on board.

My latest.  Top is my Mossberg 835 that I just finished. Mossberg 835, ATI Talon Stock and forend with Scorpion recoil reduction system, ATI Halo heatshield, TacStar 6 round side saddle, swapped the barrel and magazine tube from the camo to the security model, and TLR 3. 

Bottom is my Maverick 88.  It's just a cheap pistol grip, TacStar 6 round side saddle, and cut the barrel to 18.  It's my next project.

I don't have the $400+ to spend, but there is a strange, silly Zombified shotgun for sale at Academy that keeps calling to me whenever I see it. It'd make a good car gun

Got some more parts ordered for my Maverick.  I'll post it's new look once they all come in.  Think I'm going to order that Sightmark Green Dot that ZombieHunter has.  Looks sharp.   :rocknroll2:  As long as it holds up to the recoil...................

Anyone have the Tristar 12 Guage Semi-auto pump action TEC 12 shotgun?  I priced them at around $650 but the place I get my .22TCM ammo can give it o me for $499 out the door price.  The only dislike is it has 5 Rnds only.  I would like a 9 rounder like the Mossberg 590.  Are semi-auto's not allowed to have hi capacity?

I saw some cool FN shotguns today at a newer, local gun store. Don't wanna go down that road :p

Plus with arthritis in the neck, shotguns don't interest me much....

Bud's has the TEC12 for $425, you can use the extension tube for a Benelli shotgun to add capacity. You might have to flatten out or grind off the crimp at the end of the TEC12 mag tube.

I'm interested in a camo pattern for my UTS15.  Here are some I have looked at.  I use it for home defense, for which its current black color is fine, but I would also like a camo pattern for turkey or duck hunting.  Anyone have a prefence on any of the images below?  Any suggestions for another pattern?  I do these in photoshop.

Nothing special here. Pretty basic really for now. I don't even have a muzzle device on it!

The grip is cut down from a wooden VEPR rifle stock. It has a Burris FastFire2 on it & a surplus Russian sling. The 8rd steel mag is from csspecs.
