    Color me doubtful, but I am very interested in your perspective, once you've had a chance to ring it out for a bit.

    How much did it cost, by the way?

    It'll looks like it would be a great patrol shotgun, but I have just one question before it fufills that duty.

    Will it fit in a gun lock? I dont see it happening unless someone comes out with one specifically designed for it.

    No, it will not fit in a standard lock. To be honest, I question the build quality just enough to worry about it in a hard use role, like a patrol shotgun.

    No, I have not shot it- I may not at all. I'm not sure I'm going to keep it.
    There is a switch in the loading port, much like a selector on a AR or even what's on a over under. It is ackward to get to while shouldered, the bullpup style puts the loading port all the way to the rear.

    You have to try it Sixto. You never know.

    I used to have a Mossberg 500 bullpup (never should have sold that one ). Same thing, loading at the rear. Takes practice to get used to it and efficient.

    Besides, with 14 rounds, how much reloading do you plan on doing on patrol?

    Oh I won't use it for patrol, it's a "just because I can" type of thing for me.

    No. Don't hold your breath, I may never. Even if I decide too, I've had a lot happen this week and I'm not sure when I'll get to the range. I still have not sighted in my patrol rifle that I've had done for a month.

    I bet the ditch chickens would be shaking in their boots, if you could hunt with more than 3 rounds in the gun here.

    I don't know how to ask you to do this test, because it seems to violate all kinds of safety rules-of-thumb. But I'm still curious.

    I was wondering if a 4+4 loading would allow an easier time swiveling and tracking, instead of fully loading up to a 7+7 ? The big advantage of the bullpup is the ability to rapidly shift where you're pointing (due to less momentum), but I cannot get it out of my head that the KSG might lose that benefit by having those two mag tubes being so long. I know taking 6 shells out won't reduce the weight much, but it reduces the weight right where I'm thinking it would help.

    No rush answering. I can't think of a way to test this without loading up the weapon and pointing it rapidly in different directions. Shouldn't do that at home ... shouldn't do that at the range ...
    spend more fighting Ebola than on Thanksgiving dinner. Be grateful it's being fought there, so we don't have to fight it here.

    As well, there are millions in potential patents possible for those with a tool shed, ideas, or creative loved ones to tell.. (and gumption) It's an untapped technology.

    For a minute there I thought you were talking about the darling little 19 y.o. neighbor girl.

    I'm likely one of the first people to have it
    I've posted about wanting it


    Whew!!!!!!!


    I think once this weapon is proofed , you will find it in a lot of squad cars.

    I like it.

    I don't like this thread.

    Sixto gets an awesome gun we all want then refuses to shoot it. Rude to say the least. Do us all a favor and shoot the thing.
