    I found mine locally at Sportworld in Tulsa but Sportsman Guide has them for $7.49 per box of 10 for non members plus shipping unless order is over $49 and then shipping is free.

    Agreed! It`s a fast way to end a close quarters fight for sure!

    I made a whole bunch of buck and ball loads in 12 and 16 gauge, and I never did get out to the range to test any of them yet.

    They weren't set up to allow pattern testing the last time I went out there with the shotgun, but maybe they're set up by now. I did several weird loads and I'm dying to see how they work out.

    I can back up and get shots off at about 28 ft which happens to be the distance from my hallway to the front door....this pov is from 24 ft but I mostly shoot from 14 and 21 ft.

    Cuttin` cards.....



    Winchester 000 fired from a Mossberg .410 Cruiser / 18.5" barrel from 14 ft.

    Winchester`s 2.5" 000 buck is 3 pellets @ .360 in diameter and weighs about 71 grains each. All 3 three pellets hit within 1 inch of each other....

    Aside from wanting a .410 shotgun, I'm having a real case of barn Envy here. :D

    It's a good 30 minute drive from my house in the suburbs to any place that you can legally pull a trigger. There are some indoor ranges locally but they're just for handguns and pistol caliber rifles.

    I ran some Aguila mini buck through my gun this morning.....it cycled smoothly with very little recoil which allowed for easy follow up shots. I was consistently getting a 4" spread from 14 ft. These have 7 #4 buck and 4 #1 buck of which none penetrated the 5" of ice.....This might be suitable for close quarters defense.

    Quick question.

    I know that's a Winchester above, but have you tried the minishells in a Mossberg?

    I remember trying some when they first came out, and they wouldn't feed through mine.

    I gave the shells to my uncle, who shot the remaining box in one of his break action shotguns.

    That's what the Opsol Mini-Clip is for. LINK

    Every report I've read says it works well.

    No problem.

    I remember reading someone here recently using these and I thought I'd ask.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Update:
    I used to have a Mav 88 and let it go on a trade, my mistake so yesterday I went and picked up another one.....I have a OpSol mini clip coming in from http://shockwavetechnologies.com/site/ , and I`ll be testing it as soon as it arrives and report back.


    I give the Mav 88 a thorough cleaning and ran some Winchester #4 buck through it this morning....I was getting a nice 4" spread from 14 ft. which works fine for my needs. The HD flight controled buckshot that I`ve tried usually just cuts a hole about the size of a baby`s fist in close quarters, damned effective but you might as well be shootin` slugs.

    Pattern looks good.

    Yes, it'll tear something up. But God forbid if you ever have to use it to protect yourself or your family, that's kinda the point.

    I got the OPSol adapter in from Shockwave Technologies today and it snapped right into place and cycled the shells just fine.....That 88 will hold 9 and 1 of the Aguila mini buck but I`ll probably just keep it cruiser ready with 8.

    Winchester #4 Buckshot VS 8.35 lbs. of ice....

    I like how the Winchester #4 buck patterns in close quarters.....

    Today was the first time shooting the 88 with the Houge Tamer, firing both 2 3/4" and then the Aguila 1 3/4" buckshot using the OPSol adapter.....the Tamer felt great though I doubt I`ll be lookin` to running anything hotter than the #4 buck.
    The OPSol adapter allowed the 88 to cycle the mini buck flawlessly and I be using this combination for HD.

    I picked up some CO2 yesterday while in town and broke out the Crossman this morning......It`s loud for a pellet gun, :) accurate in steady hands but a whole lot of fun to shoot! I need to get a softer backstop when using this one though, I was getting too many ricochets whizzing past so I called quits for the day.....
