I jumped through the same $200 4-month hoops as everyone else for the SBRs. ATF doesn't recognize individual officers. You're either a private citizen or a governmental organization.

I was fine with the AFG2, but it just wasn't my style. I tend to pull back more with my front grip, and my hand tends to slide off the AFG2. I wound up selling it. I am retrofitting that rifle to a smaller and lighter configuration, and I'm going with another stubby vertical grip. Of everything I've tried, the stubby VFG is the best of all worlds for me.

Do you use a trust for ATF purchases? I've heard in maryland at least it adds an extra 30-60 waiting for the local/state police department to approve the paperwork(not sure the exact process) to go through before you get started on ATF wait. Wondering if it's worth paying to get a trust drawn up.

Reedo, which one do you prefer between your aimpoints? The M4s or micro?

Not to highjack the thread, but would think that you start with bird and upgrade from there. If you start with 00, why drop down to bird? My preference is bird, 4, 4, 00, 00, slug, slug.

The wait times have been 4 months almost to the day with the trust route. I have heard people doing the CLEO sign-off method waiting 5-6 months. I personally prefer the trust route because it eliminates the issue of needing a CLEO sign-off, since I don't live where I work. I also made my own trust using Socrates trust software and then getting it notarized and witnessed. There are pluses and minuses for both ways. I'd rather wait less time.

You know, I'm not sure. I like them both equally, but for different reasons. The M4S went onto the 11.5" because that's my primary training rifle and will eventually be a duty rifle.

The M4S is a 30mm tube, which gives it a lot bigger field of view (FOV) than the 1" tube of the Micro. The dot is also a 2MOA dot versus the 4MOA of the Micro, so it's better for long-range shots. Then the battery setup is better. It runs off of an ordinary AA battery for 80,000hrs, which is over 8yrs. Unfortunately, the M4S is relatively heavy. It's an absolute tank and can take some abuse (I know), but you will pay for it with the added weight.

The Micro's advantage comes in with it's dimensions and weight. It's significantly smaller and lighter; about 1/3 the weight and size, to be exact. That makes a huge difference on smaller or lighter weapons. The Micro uses a CR2032 watch battery, which is what most illuminated riflescopes use. It's a very common battery as well, and the 50,000hr life is fantastic. The Micro is also significantly less expensive. The M4/M4S will cost between $700-$800, depending on your mounting solution. The Micros can be had anywhere from $550-$650, depending upon mounting option and whether you go H-1 or T-1.

I have the T-1, but my next one will likely be an H-1. Given the cost savings and the weight and size savings, the Micro is the overall better optic. Whichever way you prefer, I definitely consider them to be superior to the M2/M3 models. Those models aren't bad, but the fact that they use the 1/3N batteries is problematic when you have to try and find them. Even though Aimpoints can stay on for years, when the power gets cranked up to max, you will have about a month on that power setting before the battery is toast. Such is why you need to have extra batteries on hand. I had that happen to my Micro, since the rheostat tends to move a bit too easily IMO. It's the only real complaint I have for the Micro.

Well, I actually have went with a couple different setups, but reason with starting with 00 buck mag is in case I have to shoot through a door/drywall as the first shot. That will put a good enough size hole that the bird shot will make it's way through if I have to shoot through the door again.

Also, 2 3/4" bird is good, but if it's a big fella, that may not exactly keep him from using his weapon. A 3" 00 buck sure will.

...and post up your shotgun!

I run 00Buck in the gun, but keep slugs in the 8rd sidesaddle. My slugs consist of 4rds of standard rifled slugs for long range, and 4rds of Hornady SST 300gr high-velocity slugs for close-range without over-penetration. With a Benelli, changing to slug in the chamber is extremely easy and quick.

Worth every penny. I honestly could survive the rest of my hunting career with my Super Black Eagle if I wanted to. It just works so damn well. I bought the M4 a while back, which I love, and I keep putting off picking up the 24" Ultra Light for pheasant hunting.
My brothers and I bought my dad a new M2 a couple years ago. He was skeptical about going away from his old Wingmaster, but one weekend in South Dakota with the M2 and he joined the die-hard Benelli fan club.

My benelli m3 super 90 will be the best $350 I will ever spend on a gun. It always works, takes a ton of abuse and is so much fun

Thanks. It has been answered, but the long one is a 33 rounder, originally a stock Glock 31 rounder, with the Glock +2 base plate.

I own 2 17 rounders from the Glock 17 and two stock 15 rounders.

I found a HUGE ammo dump in my house today, and I have some rounds I am sure are worth some coin, but the best part was the 12 full 50 round boxes of .45 ammo, including the hollow points and +p reloads.

I'll try and get the hammerless 5 round .38 revolver and 1911 in a pic for you guys soon.

The house that my mom and I lived in when I was in middle school had a TON of ammo left behind by the previous owner. A few thousand rounds of .22, among a variety of other things.
