I'm Maloy and my knowledge on combat and defensive shotgunning is a little dated by 30 years. I thought I'd check out this forum to improve my knowledge on what is current.

Machinist by trade for 35 years, use to help at a couple gun shops with gunsmithing. Can do old school machining to the latest in CNC. I even get to play with industrial robots.

I'm somewhat eclectic on defensive shooting, shooting sports, and firearms. I own cheap to what use to be the latest in race guns, but still have a thing for what is "Old School". I never developed a preference in shotguns other than a few Marlin 120 Magnums for hunting. I did modify one of them for steel plate shooting, but it locked up on the first shot a week ago. I fixed it, but it got me thinking about a more contemporary platform since parts for them are getting hard to find and a pain to make if I can't find the time.

Hence the reason I'm here.

Welcome.  Glad some skill guys are coming on board as knowledge of machining and CNC is always welcomed.  There are so many variations of the shooting sports it is good to have guys with some experience in them incase someone ask a question about them.  I know nothing about competition shooting and sport shooting so can't help there.

Thanks for the welcome. I recently picked up a used 870 express magnum rifled slug gun for $200. No finish left on the stock. The wood grain is open enough to soak up a quart can of linseed oil. Since Ohio has allowed rifles with straight wall cartridges, it is a buyers market for shotguns that had a specific task like this one.

I like the Remington rifle sights and found a used barrel today, with the Remchoke setup. It came with a Carlsons Turkey choke and a Remington IC. I still believe the smooth bore is the best for most needs for a shotgun. The rifled choke tube long gone. No loss in my book.

You are exactly right. In the last couple years the only thing you can literally get a good deal on at a gun show are pump shotguns here in Ohio because guys have been going to straight wall cartridges. That’s ok i’ll Pick up those no good/obsolete pumps!
