Ordered another Houge grip (FDE) for the current 88 and of course had to give whirl....2 Fiocchi 9 pellet low recoil buckshot loads from 21ft on a 8" Dirty Bird. :) It`s been a while but I can still sling some lead!

Re-thinking NSI`s 2 1/4" mini buck...

I have trust issues with mini buck loads but I decided to run some through the Mav 88 with 20" barrel from 21ft. to see how it performed. I was getting about 4 to 4 1/2" spread. That`s not too bad considering the mild recoil and it will hold a box of 10. Should be sufficient for close quarters HD.

One load of Federal 7.5 shot vs about 8lbs of ice from 14ft....According to the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health it`s less than 2 inches from the surface of the skin to the outer surface of the heart. I love Science!

Federal LE Tactical 2 3/4" 9 pellet buckshot from 21 feet......it`s pretty much just punches a hole from this distance. My targets are made with typical poster board, Casey 3" round bulls inside a 6" circle traced with a sharpie....

At 24 feet I can safely say that birdshot is for the birds.......
