12 Gauge Rifled Slug Accuracy Testing:
Today I was feeling a need to punish myself, so I shot 80 rounds of full power 1 ounce 12 gauge rifled slugs in an effort to find out which were the most accurate.

What Is Dry Fire Practice?
Dry fire is the practice of “firing” a firearm without ammunition. That is, to pull the trigger and allow the hammer or striker to drop on an empty chamber. Dry fire practice will help refine your trigger control. It will pay off with huge dividends when you go back to the gun range. Dry fire techniques are discussed further below.
Most modern firearms are mechanically safe to dry fire, however certain firearms can easily be damaged if the firearm’s trigger mechanism is fired on an empty chamber. Damage can be prevented by using simulated ammunition generally referred to as “Snap Caps”, discussed further below.
Similar to Ruger’s long discontinued PC-9 and PC-40 carbines, but greatly improved!
The National Firearms Act and Weapons Configuration Legality:
The regulations from the National Firearms Act (NFA) regarding barrel length and the legality of adding a rifle stock and forward pistol grip are very confusing. What constitutes a “short barrel rifle” (SBR), a “short barrel shotgun” (SBS), or Any Other Weapon (AOW) and requires a $200 tax stamp from the BATFE? With all of the cool and useful firearms parts and accessories available it could be very easy to illegally configure your pistol, rifle, or shotgun. I found these diagrams on the internet that concisely break down and simplify the issue.
