    3" or 3.5" the only thing I was worried was light loads they say 1200ftps at 1 oz for target loads.

    3.5" I never had issues with the sx3 cycling, even trap shooting. My mossberg 935 wont cycle most trap loads

    I finally got a Benelli super black eagle II about 5 years ago. My other shotguns never leave the house anymore.

    Good looking weapon. I do not own an auto loader. Would like that one for sure

    I swear if somebody came up with an after shave that smelled like Federal paper shells and Hoppe's #9 the shooting sports would buy all they could make

    Damn I love the smell of Federal paper shells after they have been shot

    20171201_174806.jpg My last call was fixing a furnace at a gun store. I have been in there the last few weeks looking at this 380, finally decided to purchase it after staring at it the whole time I was there.
    The owner is a disabled Vietnam vet, so I like to give him business. Plus, he uses us for his HVAC.

    I haven't heard anything good about the trigger on the LCP. I dry-fired one a couple years ago at a gun shop. It will function just fine, just stiff and gritty.

    OK, I just looked at some reviews on the LCP II and it looks like they made some good improvements to the trigger

    I had been talking to the owner, and he mentioned that while discussing it. I dry fired it, seems good. I will shoot it tomorrow

    At least Ruger is trying to listen to the customers and making changes, unlike Remington.

    Ballistol is my favorite oil. It cleans and protects from rust. I use it on everything, lock, stock, barrel, and knives.

    I have the LCP 380. The trigger pulls just fine. The only thing I'm not 's fan of is the length of the trigger pull. However, the gun has no safety, so a long trigger pull isn't the worst idea in the world. It's okay now that I've shot it a while, but took some getting used to.
