I worked for over a decade in the rag business in Milwaukee, most of the labor force there was either Hispanic, Eastern European, or Hmong. But the other poster is right, we are supposed to be talking about shotguns.

300 to 400 rounds before it started working properly. How is that a fine shotgun? You wouldn't put up with this from any other product. Imagine a TV salesman telling you had to watch about 400 hours of TV before the picture was clear. How about your car, if you had to drive it 400 miles before the windows would work or maybe it wouldn't start every time until you drove it for 400 miles. I don't know about you guys but when I buy something I expect it to work, right out of the box. Sure you buy a gun, you clean it and lube it but it should function perfectly.

I'm talking about birdshot to slugs .8 shot to 3" magnum. Try loading multiple rds of different shells in any semi shotgun right off the shelf. Now that its broke in its flawless. And for you to compare a tv to a shotgun is ridiculous. Would you put diesel in a gas engine. You are taking this way out of context. I'm saying that a shotgun shooting a variety of shells in one tube then shooting it

Still should work. That shotgun doesn't know what shell was behind it or what is next in the tube. If it was designed to shoot 3" it should feed it regardless of what was next or ahead it in the tube.

I have seen brand new Berettas and VersaMaxs eat everything brand spanking new. One VersaMax didn't even get cleaned, got pulled out of the box and put together and shot. I have also seen one Mossberg do it, too.

My shotguns worked fine out of the box. A few hiccups sure. But now it never jams.
