Shoot some other shotguns it's pretty not to go up from the Mossberg.

If you've got a longer barrel, someday you'll have to go up to Oak Tree and shoot trap or skeet with it. There's nothing like dusting a few birds in a row.

You were only shooting at 25 yards max (and probably more like 5-10 yds). They won't be accurate at distance out of an 18.5" smooth bore shotgun.

"Accuracy" is a relative term. For some, hitting the paper (or intended target) is good enough. For others, consistantly shooting sub moa at 1000 yards is only the start.

I did it at 10 , 15 and 20.

and by accuarate i meant i expected more deviation. i only missed once aiming for the head, the slug went over "his" head.

What kind of groups were you getting? I'd say 4" offhand at 25 yards is plenty accurate for a smooth bore shotgun.

Slugs you think!? You'd know if it was a slug believe me!

And for most people that sort of thing is utterly irrelevant to a discussion of shotguns. Particularly short-barrel smoothbore slug-shooting.

Minute-of-bad-guy IS the point of such a rig. And that's it.

i didn't really pay attention i just put the things in there. but the receipt said slugs so they are slugs. and it only put one hole in the paper so... i was a little confused on my first shot because i was expecting a shot pattern. i did't really think about it, was having too much fun.
