Made a video showing the M4 in action, from various angles, including some slow motion sequences. Thought folks who are interested in the M4 might enjoy it:

To get even better recoil control try standing more square to the target instead of having the weapon side foot to the rear. Standing partially bladed is more useful when wing shooting or shooting aerial targets but not as much when shooting grounded targets. You do still want an agressive stance that has your center of gravity more on the balls of your feet instead of the heels with a forward lean. Also try to get the stock closer in toward your bodies centerline and deeper in the pocket of your shoulder. If it's too hard to get the stock in the pocket, then your length of pull may be a bit long. A shorter stock can be a bit easier to get positioned better. The push-pull method is useful, I tell friends to act like they are trying to stretch the shotgun when they shoot it.

Try it next time your at the range and see what you think. Looks like you're having fun though. I dig the Benelli, but it's not in my budget right now. Thinking about one in the future, or maybe a Mossberg 930 ( I hear they're soft shooters and very reliable after they get shot in a bit).

Thank you sir, I will do all these things next time out.

Why'd you pick gas instead of inertia? Just curious
What's the price difference?

My question to is........ Is the inertia so much better, that it is worth the asking price? What are the advantages? Faster? Cleaner, lower recoil?

Inertia is cheaper. I think the M2 was $300 less than the M4 I took home. Inertia is faster but the ARGO (auto regulating gas operated) M4 is more reliable with a wider range of ammo. I've shot both and can't remember a significant difference in recoil.

Ah, thanks for the clarification.

Inertia is supposed to be "self cleaning" blowing powder n such down the barrel and not in the reciever. Theoretically (but both might be). I think the inertia has less moving parts which some people like if cleaning in the field. Ie...no gas port etc...

Thanks terry. Remember reading about them years ago. Just didn't remember anything.
