    Does the light help you identify targets at the ranges you'd be using that scope?

    I've been looking for a green laser to get and no it doesn't work at the ranges I'll usually shoot at, I had it on there when I had my AR set up for HD with a holographic sight but now I have an 18" shotgun to use for that. I just haven't taken it off and put it on my shotty yet

    I'm just messing w/ you.

    I'd skip on the green laser unless you see something it can add to a set-up like that. No need wasting your money on accessories.

    Shag,

    Now that is a nice AR. And you are to be congratulated for having the scope in the correct position in regard to the receiver and Charging Handle. The only way you can do that is with a free float quad rail as you have or one of the AR Mounts that move the scope farther forward. This allows you to also shoot it comfortably in the prone position. Or with out having to what I call Goose Necking to shoot the rifle. Nice job! Always fun to add goodies to the rifle which I am sure you will be. Can't think of the name off hand but one company makes a varmint flashlight that mounts to the tube of the scope that has a real powerful Green Light with some decent range! If I can find it I will re post the information~
    Have fun!

    Elusive Wildlife Technologies is the one I was thinking of. But Primos also makes a good assortment of scope mounted and rail mounted varmint hunting lights.

    You'll probably want higher rings. That scope is sitting pretty low and I'm guessing that your cheek weld is less than comfy. Might look into LaRue mounts. They are throw lever quick attach/detach and return to zero. That would also allow you to switch between the scope and the holographic sight. I can't tell what type of bipod that is, but if it's a cheapo you'll want to get a Harris whenever it's convenient. If you don't have a match trigger, you should consider installing one. I like the RRA two stage but there are a lot of good ones available.

    On a side note, the carbine is a far better tool for home defense than the shotgun. It carries far more ammunition and recoils much less allowing for quicker follow up shots. It is capable of defeating soft armor. It presents less of a hazard to family members and neighbors if a shot is missed. It is far more precise. It is less prone to failure under stress. The one advantage the 12 gauge has is the tissue damage from each individual shot is much greater than any other man portable weapon. Its disadvantages far out weigh the one advantage, though.

    Of course hardware is far less important than software. If YOU are more proficient and comfortable with the scattergun, then it will be a better tool for YOU. As with anything else, professional training is required to be truly effective.

    Proper spelling and if thats the case buy the titanium one if you can afford one. If not get a 2 or 3 stage.
