    Be sure to purchase the OPSol Mini Clip on Amazon. It’s a little rubber insert that assists in cycling the mini shells flawlessly in the Shockwave.

    I know for a fact that targetsportsusa.com has some of the Mini Slugs. They ain’t cheap, but they’re fun. They seem to go pretty quickly everywhere I see them.

    I found some at 'Outdoor Limited' ... they seem to have a good amount in stock. I ordered three 20 rd boxes of the buck loads.
    Thanks Tony... I'll keep that one in mind also.

    I've been looking into these too, my LGS keeps them in stock and they move really quick. I've actually been seeing pictures online of people taking these and getting adapters to add AR pistol braces to them and it looks like it could be pretty cool to explore if you wanted to customize one. Not sure of the legality of shouldering one of these braces when it's mounted on a Shockwave, though. That would need some reading for sure. Friends and I all have AR pistols, 2 of us have the SB PDW brace and one has a Maxim and the little things are really great

    It’d be nice, but the Raptor Grip is what makes the short barrel legal. As soon as you add a pistol grip, stock, or brace you are turning a “firearm” into a “shotgun” and need an NFA for it. Since the Raptor Grip Shockwave was never meant to be fired from the shoulder and does not have a pistol grip it does not fit the verbiage of a shotgun, but change that grip out and BAM! a short barrel shotgun that requires an NFA.

    Suppose it's not surprising for something like that to be the case, I imagine state laws also play a pretty big part too depending on where you're at. Thanks for the info, though, I appreciate it!

    According to our friends at BATFE it is classified as a firearm but not an NFA firearm. They also say any modifications other then as built or concealed carry in a car or on one’s person changes it to an NFA gun requiring the proper paperwork and fees to be submitted before modification.

    Not trying to be a spoiler but after I bought my 20 Gauge Shockwave I did research online about it - I’ve got too much at stake to risk losing it all! Besides, my first range visit with 25 rounds of #4 buckshot it I see a joy to shoot. Like the original Brownie camera -point and shoot! I’m thinking a double rig of some sort; the Shockwave on one side, the Ranch Hand .45Colt on the other side!

    Here is a design copyright by me. This prototype works wonderful and should not inadvertently work the action under normal use. I'm planning production of completed units with the user only having to unscrew and remove his original front handguard strap and install my unit using the existing handguard screws. My sling assembly will include the rear sling swivel device ready to install.

    This configuration eases and simplifies deployment when bringing your firearm into action as compared to conventional sling carry with this type of firearm.

    I have shot and tested extensively both the Remington and the Mossberg,
    I will be getting the Mossberg for sure, surprisingly useful and way more controllable then I imagined.

    Good to see your fingers off the trigger there... you'd get a Mossy-vasectomy!
