The Vang Comp System does absolutely work as advertised. People say since the Federal FlightContol wad was invented there is no need for a backbore and forcing cone work but I say what if you eventually cant get flightcontrol or TAP….you will always have the barrel and what ever you end up shooting out of it you know it will be patterning the best it can.

These two patterns were taken with the same gun, one with the OEM barrel and one after the barrel got VCS done



The ammo was Rio high power 9 pellet 00 buck. Rio is the worst patterning buck I have ever shot and almost worthless past 15 yards with a Cyl choke.

both targets are 12"x12"


20 yards stock barrel


20 yard VCS 20” smoothbore all 9 are accounted for.

a torch ?

To me a light on a gun is not for navigation and if I don’t need it I won’t use it. A weapon light, to me, is for target ID but if I can use ambient light and preserve my natural "night vision" I will. I run a light because you never know when you will need it……if you go running around with a light on then it will just give someone something to shoot at.

In a home defense situation I know my house and I know where my loved ones are. It has enough ambient light for me to move around and ID. I don’t believe in using a light , laser or racking a slide to scare people off….that stuff just gives away your position…..the last thing a bad guy will hear in my house is the click of my safety as all my HD weapons have one in the chamber.

i have the winchester 12ga SXP Defender model, holds 5 shells, has a 18" barrel, synthetic stock and grip. nice shooting gun, even my wife likes it! i have in the past a mossberg 500, maverick 88 and the remington 870 for hd/sd use and would recommend any of these as far as pump shotguns go. i prefer pumps myself. i do like the new winchester, as we have shot it a lot and we both enjoy shooting it, and the price was not bad, i paid $349 + tax nib. i wanted another maverick or mossberg, but as of late they seem hard to get for some reason in my area. always out of stock to the dealer. so i bought the winchester and couldn't be happier.

Haha normally I don't mind but there's kind of a really old feud between Ireland (where I am) and England/Britain (about 850 years) and well, I hate being a prick but I hate being associated with them even more so just yea, I'm Irish but I guess having adopted their language some of their words' meanings have stayed with us...:S :P
