    I just found out I could ghost load my STOEGER m3500...does anybody actually ghost load their guns on a regular basis and will it hurt anything doing this

    I'm not 100% with that model, from what i hear ghost loading with Benellis is fairly safe, with the occasional FTF the ghost load.

    After loading the tube on the gun you put a shell in the chamber then put another shell on top if the elevator....look it up on youtube

    Seems more of hassle than that extra round is worth. IMO, still interesting though.

    Urs I tried it out yesterday and had 3 out of 10 FTF so I'm not messing with it any but it was cool bc when I did it my fun then held 7 2 3/4" rounds without any extension tubes

    I'm curious about how that extra shell causes the ftf? Unless that shell is putting pursue on the bolt.

    I think he meant a failure to feed, not a failure to fire, either way just as big of a determent to not do it, in my opinion.

    I loved it. I shot everything. Besides slugs. 2.75, 3, 3.5 and in the order. I'm going to install the recoil reducer and shoot some 3 and 3.5 when ever I get back home. The only thing that could make this gun any better is by reversing the safety as I am a left hand shooter

    I have no problems loading my M4 like this. Puts 9 rounds total in the gun. It is almost too much! Almost.

    Well I went in to a few stores for a 28 " apg. Because i hunt timber most of the time. But all I could find we're 26s. So I got the black. And a guy had said that he knew a fella over in ar. That dips them, so now I'm thinking of going with a "hard wood" I don't think that's the name. In fact I'm sure it's not I just don't remember. But it tends to blend well with where I hunt. It either that or break up.

    And on another note I tore into the safety to try and reverse it and I dont think its going to be a simple fix so I'm going to look into have a trigger milled out fir a left handed safety.
