Those Aquila 12 gauge mini shells are jammomatic…need to be tested in the intended gun of use…not impressed.
Ok for a small person and a single/double shot barrel?
Over priced gimmick… :thinking: Not even going to buy to try!

Read about the adapter ($15 ) for Mossberg 500 & 590 available for the mini-shells. It’s listed on the buckshot page. Not a problem with them but using them in any shotgun is.

@DirtSalior Mr. Mixup and his son likes the setup. Of course he likes to shoot anything and everything.

I have a 500 but I’m not going to “mixup” my 12 gauge ammo.

When I sold my sailboat I let the Brazilian double barrel shotgun go with it…dang it. :joy:

OP, I would buy a rifle. As you’ve not stated our budget I’ll stay in the medium spending range and suggest a bolt action in .308/7.62 NATO with a fair 3X9 scope. Versatile all around cartridge for most, if not all N. American game. Perfect candidate for a Scout Rifle

I got some of these for my Mule Ear sometime ago on one of my trips back to Arkansas visiting my Pop.
Haven’t done anything with the shotgun since. Been tinkering with other firearms.
Liegeoise D’ Arms 12 ga Double Barrel

Need to get it out of the safe and have some fun.

Using the JT Defense mount… Very solid! I’m using a Vortex Venom red dot since I use on my PC9 already as well. 3 MOA and came with a hat. Haha

My budget is about $600 no more, don’t forget the tax which would bring it up another $48 plus dollars on $600. Then the cost of ammo if going to different caliber. No being cheap just realistic about the situation. I have 9mm for my S2k and my pistols. 00 Buck and slugs. 7.62x39 SKS last my wife’s 38 caliber revolver. Had also 40 Glock 23 gen3 sold it. Sorry that I did.

A pair of Ruger’s, 10/22 and a Wrangler. You get both a rifle and a handgun, as both are .22’s and there’s money left in the tank, you can get some ammo too.

I grew up shooting rifles at a young age hunting on our lease in GA, Had a tube fed Springfield bolt action.22 my poppa gave and a 410 when I was 8. So growing up with them and being most familiar with them I would take a rifle.

The latest and greatest question ever. Right now during the Coronavirus madness. I would say 45 cal handgun as I only found 40, 45 and 12 gauge ammo is left on shelves.
Btw… Good luck on your Decision.

Well I have the funds for a CZ-Scorpion. As soon my CZ dealer has back in stock I will buying one in Battleship gray. Do some up grades with HB Industries in the next county to me roughly 30 minute drive from home. So this my choice to buy.

If I had the money I would purchase a PSA AK-E. I’ve been seeing a lot of really good things about it, and I really want an AK platform.

Just found out that CZ discontinued the Micro scorpion. So going with Extar PCC 9mm. Went thru a bunch of u-tube on this pistol. No brainer. $419 and a made in the USA right here in my state. Don’t need to spend a lot of money for the same results. Pull trigger bang.
