Ithacas are a great choice for left handed shooters.

I dont know...there is a psychological effect of looking down 2 barrels. The ole coach gun is an effective tool if you're spouse is terrified of firearms like mine.

Picked up an old Ithaca 12 ga pumpaction yesterday for $300 at a local store. Deerslayer, smooth bore, 20" barrel. My gosh this gun is sweet! Smooth as buttter. Makes the new 870s look like crap. Like it more than my new Benelli pump I paid $500 for.

Took the new Ithaca to the range yesterday and ran about 60 shells through it. Little dissaponted. While it handles and points nice, a few times the next to last shell got hung up and would not extract. Had to remove the non fired case and cycle the pump action back hard once or twice to them eject.

Rest of time ran smooth. But did notice with the downward shell casing ejection, the casing hotting my left wrist as the pump action was cycled rearward. FoUnd that tilting the shotgun to the right eliminates this. But then of course not as fast on follow up shots.

Did you clean and lube it before using? Sounds like a dirty chamber to me. I've noticed with bottom ejection you have to cycle them harder than an 870,590 etc.

How many times do you have to shoot someone with a shot gun?

I've read quite a few opinions on this and like everything firearm related, everyone has a very steadfast opinion and everyone else is an idiot.

My question is, for it's intended purpose, we put RDSs on our rifles and pistols, why not a shotgun? Seems to me to eliminate the need for any light to see the bead (tracking the POSID issue), no lining up ghost rings or anything like that under duress. With the natural pointability of SGs it makes sense to me that it would be faster and just another upgraded tool in the toolbox.

Your thoughts gentlemen?
I ran a Aimpoint Comp M2 on the Benelli in OIF2. Worked fine for slug vs autos, and breaching doors. Don't see a downside. S/F....Ken M

Yup. RDS/LPVO all the things.

Think abut the Benelli Super Nova tactical model. You can get one with an adjustable stock.

Already have one. With the standard stock though. It is OK.
