The m4 isn't the only gun capable of being ghost loaded....I'm pretty sure all of the benelli style of inertia action can be ghost loaded

I know some of the newer Benellis have a notch on the bottom of the bolt or carrier that prevents this, so I guess they got the word. I have done a little scouting around, and it appears some wardens already know about this and are checking. None of my guns will do it, and I am not into tactical so I was oblivious. It appears several brands of pumps and semi autos can do this. I don't know all the state laws, but I know the Federal boys can confiscate your gun - saw it happen in Maryland. Guy had only been loading two in the magazine, but he had forgotten his plug.
If you have a gun that can be ghost loaded, and you plan to waterfowl hunt, or hunt where the capacity is limited by law, I would get in touch with the manufacturer and see if they have a fix they can send you. Losing your gun and getting smacked with a hefty fine would make for a bad day.
I got a $385 fine 20 years ago for one dove over the limit. My dog was retrieving for me and a couple of other guys. I had actually walked back to the truck and unloaded and was sitting there drinking an iced tea when the warden checked me. I have never been more shocked than when he counted the birds. I counted them again, and told him what must have happened. He was very sympathetic as he wrote out the ticket. He said, "You know I could confiscate your gun, too, don't you?" Terror struck me as I glanced at my $5500 SxS 28 gauge. He must have been scared I was going to have a heart attack, because he quickly added he wasn't going to. I have been a wee bit more careful since.

Love Big Daddy and his channel.

I like to go fast too! The key here is the shirt. Got to wear the ugliest shirt you can find to get full speed out of the M4.



Of course, you can also go fast with eight round, but ONLY if you wear a long sleeve button down business shirt:

Any Mossberg will hold one more shell than the listed capacity if the gun is loaded with 2 3/4" ammo. You are over compressing the magazine spring so you should never store a Mossberg with an extra shell in it. But the extra shell is an advantage in a 3 gun match. With my cuff I have 14 shots I can lay down PDQ.

Dowel rod limiting to one shell in the tube solves it. Just cut to length and drop it in the center of the spring. No need for a permanent "fix"

The game warden has to catch you with a ghost load. You plug your gun 2+1. You don't run a ghost load all the time.

My Mossberg 930 SPX autoloader can be "ghost loaded". 7+1+1. I have seen a co-worker ghost load his Remington 870 but I'm not sure which 870 model he has.
