Lazer Arms XR410 410 Revolver Shotgun Review

The Lazer Arms XR410 is a 5-shot revolver 410 shotgun made in Turkey.

Note: unlike the Taurus Judge this shotgun is not made to fire 45 Long Colt. Just 410. Shooting […]

Browning A5 for 3 Gun

My Stoeger M3500 is so easy to load, but reliability has been a bit hit or miss. The long, 3.5″ inertial action cycles with 3.5″ goose loads just fine, but struggled with lighter weight target loads, so I was looking at a new shotgun. I ended up buying a Browning A5 Stalker and wanted to […]

  12 gauge is such a popular shotgun shell that most of the time, when people are talking about their “pump action” or “semi auto” shotgun, the gauge is completely left out. Back when fixed chokes were the norm, a 12 gauge was a bit much for small game in close, so the 16, 20, […]
