Thanks Wayne!

I never thought about buying a Shockwave for myself, but it seems perfect for home defense.

Regarding the small rubber adapter, could you post a link, so I know what to purchase.

Thanks for your help!

Tom,
Yes that is it. In fact I am going to order one shortly in case I come across some of the Aquila mini shot shells.

In fact,tomorrow I am going to my Class 3 dealer to pick up my tax stamp that just arrived. Just 4 days shy of eight months since they received the application . I was expecting to wait much longer.

That dealer does have the Aguila mini shot shells.

Thanks for letting me know about the adapter, Wayne. Glad you said something! I just ordered one.

BTW, is Aguila the only manufacturer that offers 12 ga. mini shells?

They look devastating. I seriously doubt that I would find them in NY.

I have an old Remington 870 that used to have the Pachmeyer Vindicator grip as well as a Pachmeyer fore end grip. The barrel is 18 1/4". I had it bead blasted and reblued. It was the perfect Jeep shotgun before the days of legal concealed carry. I still have the 870 but for some reason put the stock stock back on. I Now I will have to scrounge through my collection of "stuff" and reinstall the Pachmeyrs.

Btw, this was so long ago the grip does not have the Packmeyer logo medallion. I never liked that when they added it to their grips. I would prowl the gun shows looking for pre-medallion grips to buy.

The Shock Wave will get the job done, however old days gone bye also got it done. Double pulled once, it was a memorable experience.
Nothing like a stagecoach side by side shotgun. If you've never experienced it, do it.

Warren,
Causing a Coach gun to "double" I might be crazy but not STEWPID!!!

Actually it was common in the old west to double as it assured that at least one bbl would go off. Ammo during that time was not terribly reliable.

In fact,Doc.Holliday had a Belgium 10 ga sawed off that he had in a shoulder rig of sorts that allowed him to swivel the gun up to position to fire....both bbls!!!

Tom,
At this time,I think Aguila is the only company offering minis shells.


I have heard about the duplex products but until now never seen them in print.

If you want a real treat,try some Brenneke 12 ga 3" magnums.Touch one of those off and you know that the bull did it in the buckwheat for sure.

SxS is the only shotgun I own. I bought a Charles Daly "way back" because they offered a lifetime warranty (much like Springfield Armory and their M1As).

A few years after I bought it, they went bankrupt. sigh.
