Dear Technoid, I am interested in finding the closest thing to a recoilless 12 gauge shotgun. Can you please comment and advise, thanks. Emilio Dear Emilio, First things: The lightest recoiling 12 gauge gun that I ever shot was the Browning recoilless trap gun. It felt like a .410. Unfortunately, it couldn’t fire twice and […]

Dear Bruce, I have been contemplating shotgun shell loads as of late. I’m wondering about how much effect is lost by using only 1 oz of 8 shot… I have heard from some of the best shooters that “if your on, your on”! I use a browning 425 o/u and I’m thinking that 1 oz […]

Dear Technoid, I took your advice and bought the AL390 sporter. I like it. I want to spend more money on it. What tubes would you recommend… Briley, Seminole, Rhino, Ballistic Specialties etc.? Have you had experience with any (or all) of these. Do you suggest porting, back boring, lengthening the forcing cone etc.? I […]

Hi Bruce, I agree completely with most of your comments about aftermarket barrel mods like porting and backboring because after years of patterning many different guns with varying bore dimensions i’ve come to the conclusion that pattern density has little to do with whether or not you have a .720 bore or a .745 bore.

Dear Technoid, I have a Beretta 686 Onyx Sporting model with 30″ barrels. After noticing a trend of low shot placement, I tested for “point of impact” using the method you have described in Shotgun Report. (five or six shots while mounting from different angles at 30 yards using the same full choke tube for […]

Hi Bruce, I am presently shooting a 30” Beretta 692 Skeet and have discovered no flaws with this gun. I am curious as to your opinion of this gun. Do you think the more expensive DT-11 is worth the extra cost? Thank you for your considered opinion, Richard Fleming Dear Richard, A lot of this […]

For Love of the San Jose Earthquakes

The metamorphosis of MLS from a domestic league to an international league has wreaked havoc on San Jose. The Quakes correctly looked to international players to save the team after the 2013 & 2014 disaster seasons, but failed to understand the impact internationals would have on the league going forward. While the Quakes signed players […]
