:D FLYROD. What the dealer gave you was some of the AQUILA 12 GA. AMMO. It is made in MEXICO...I am not so sure that the 870 will cycle that short round with any degree of reliability. I bought a couple of boxes in them and use them in my side by sides or my over/unders. Some of the guys have been seeing some cycling problems with them in thier pumps. For your information there is a little 12ga that was made just for that short round with cycle reliability. The shot charges in this shorty is a grin to shoot at woodcock and grouse that are close. Should be good fer bunnies also. King :grin:

I bought one for camping about 2 years ago after having some major bear problems and only being armed with muzzle loader. What a great gun. I went back home to hunt and fish while camping in the Adirondacks last fall, we put the canoes in at Tupper Lake.

We dumped the canoes twice got rained a lot. But still had a great time camping. Always better than sitting in a office. The 870 was great, looks as good now as it did new even after taking a bath. We are done canoe camping, both of us decided to get a open kayaks.
