How To Use A Pump-Action Shotgun
A bunch of people are buying their very first gun right now, so we thought it would be a good time to revisit our Shooting 101 series. This time, we're doing pump-action shotguns. This one ended up being pretty long, so we cooked up some handy timecode shortcuts for easy navigation:

Gear used in the video:
- In the first half, I used a 12 gauge Remington 870 with a Magpul stock and Magpul forend, a Streamlight Protac Rail Mount light, and a Vang Comp Systems sidesaddle/ammo carrier attached to the receiver with some adhesive velcro tape from the hardware store. The front sight is a Wilson Combat/Scattergun Technologies sight and the rear is a very old ghost ring from the now-defunct company MMC. It also has a Vang Comp Systems +1 mag tube extension.
- The Mossberg Shockwave is a 20 gauge model with an XS Big Dot front sight and an EssTac sidesaddle attached with velcro
- The shotgun I used for the range demos is actually the same 870 as before, but in a different configuration. The stock and mag tube extension are the same as before. It has a 14-inch Remington barrel with XS Express sights (yes, it is a legal, registered SBS). The stock is from Magpul. The forend is a janky old Surefire unit with a Malkoff LED head in place of the original incandescent bulb. The sidesaddle is from EssTac, attached to the receiver with Velcro.
