Shotgun noob stuff

Took the Beretta, in its stock configuration, out for another 75 rounds. No problems to report. Gun ran great. And then, when I got home, this happened:

Just a lot more media coverage

There Are Fewer School Shootings Now Than During the 1990s


The Texas shooter used a shotgun and a revolver. This kind of harshed the media narrative.

And some good journalisming from USA Today calling the guns less lethal. Pepper spray is less lethal, you idiots. Not shotguns and revolvers. Depending on the range, the shotty is more lethal.

Why are anti-gun activists so violent?

You never see the press do this

Tucker Carlson calls out an idiot who makes ridiculous claims about AR-15s:

Clearly, we must ban revolvers, shotguns, pressure cookers and PVC

At least 10 dead in a school shooting in Texas. The shooter, in this case, used a revolver and a shotgun. He also had pressure cooker bombs and pipe bombs.

Don’t do that

When they came up with the 300 Blackout, they wanted it to be compatible with standard AR magazines. Unfortunately, this also means a 5.56 gun can actually chamber a 300. And that will end poorly.

Shotgun Noob part whatever: First range trip

Despite having a ton of accessories laying around the house for the Beretta 1301, I haven’t added any to the gun. I wanted to run it stock first. And believe me, the temptation to put all that stuff on was great. I even sat down to do it once and talked myself out of it. But this ain’t a post about that, it’s a post about this:

I snagged 500 rounds of Remington Gun Club low recoil shot shells from Lucky Gunner. This ammo is fun and suitable for the range and training but birdshot is not adequate for self defense.

I took it to the range planning on shooting 100 rounds through it. I managed 25 before a pop-up thunderstorm ruined that plan. I loaded it up and realized it had a plug in it limiting it to 2+1. I loaded 2 and racked the charging handle and it didn’t chamber a shell. The manual that came with the gun is not good. You can’t find the information you need because it’s buried in between all of the safety warnings nobody reads. So, to the YouTube. You actually need to load a round into the chamber. Ok, easy enough.

I fired the first shot into a small detention of the berm just to observe the pattern. It was tighter than I figured it would be. Then, I started shooting various “drills” for lack of a better word. Rapid fire 3 into one target. Rapid fire 3 into 3 targets. And so on. And the last few rounds, I’d fire into the berm at various distances to see the pattern. It was a hoot to shoot.

I tried my hand at the tacticool reloads but was not very successful.

I guess now I can start adding lights, lasers, tasers, phasers, and wind-speed indicators to it.

Granted, it was only 25 rounds but there were no malfunctions. Just operator error.

Moloning some labe

A college graduate, who could not carry while she was a student, strapped on her AR and carried a sign saying come and take it. While I think this sort of thing isn’t helpful, it generates some serious PSH among the press and the left (but I repeat myself).

Stopping a bad guy with a gun

Requires a good guy with a gun:

A police officer shot and wounded an armed former student in an exchange of gunfire outside Dixon High School on Wednesday.

A Dixon police resource officer confronted the gunman around 8 a.m. The suspect fired at the officer, who shot back, injuring the gunman. Dixon is located about 100 miles west of Chicago.

Police Chief Steven Howell said the officer confronted the suspect, a 19-year-old male who had been expelled from school, near the schools west gym. As the officer pursued the suspect, the offender fired several shots and the officer returned fire. The former student suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken into custody just west of the school. The officer was not hit.

That’s scary

Oh, Canada

Someone may some day be virtue signaled to death.

A complaint was filed with Canada’s Human Rights Commission by a transgendered woman (i.e., a dude) against a spa because the spa would not perform a Brazilian wax. The reason they wouldn’t is because the waxologist (that is apparently a thing) is Muslim and her religious beliefs say that she is not to touch pee pees that don’t belong to her husband.

If you’re a righteous, virtue signaling social justice warrior, who do you root for here?

Shotgat noob edition:

You might be a gun nut if you plan on drilling holes in a gun you haven’t shot.*

The Beretta 1301 Comp 24 arrived. And I’m anxious to learn how to run a shotgun. I’ve ordered a +5 magazine extension tube and a picatinny rail. Those are no big deal. But I also snagged a Stage Saver. I’ll be curious to see if I can learn to use it. I also snagged a shot-shell holder. They make models that load 4 but I figured I’d start off with 2 while I’m learning all this stuff.
