Military Shotguns- Vietnam
 
Ran across some excellent photos of one really great display of shot weapons, including a bit of everything AND the ammo. Thought I'd share with yall-

Vietnam Shotgun Display

Nice pics c3...where can I get some of those 12 ga. flachette rounds? Conspiciously absent from the display was Mossberg? Thought the 590 was a military issue?

If NJ laws are anything like MA, most of these rounds are not legal there.

J- the Mossy 590 Military started production about 1987. Nam was over.

Well that explains a lot... (Sheepish grin)

Thanks.

^^^ OK, I LOL'd. :D

The "silent shotgun round" was really cool.

I will have an Ithica pump someday; they are just neato.

I would love a winchester model 97 trench gun, I like the idea of a exposed hammer on any gun (except bolt action) main reason I don't like glocks.
