Performance of 20 Ga. Slug Gun

Randy I just wrote to you about how well the 12 ga 3" hybrid elites shoot. What do you think about a 20 ga. slug gun?

Super Cell Recoil Pads Compatibility with 870

Randy, I recently bought a used 870 tarhunt with the black synthetic stock. Will the new style Remington super cell recoil pads work on this stock? This gun will shoot one ragged hole at 100 yds with the Lightfields. I am a believer now that shotguns are as good as many of my rifles to 150 yds. [...] Read More

Removing Recoil from Ithaca Model 87

I have been using Lightfields since they first came on the market in my Ithaca Model 87 12 gauge featherweight. It is chambered for 3 inch, however, the recoil is devastating even on the 2 3/4 hybrids. I caught scope eye, twice in the same day, (actually caught the bridge of my nose), the second [...] Read More
