Hi Croaker, Many thanks & much appreciation for your experienced advice. Since I have my KSG I have only been shooting in indoor ranges, therefore limited to slugs or double aught Buck shot. All my shots are dependably close to dead center at 10, 15 and 25 yards now with both types of ammo. After the first 250 rounds, I was repeatably consistent. I will be joining an out door range when things warm up and am anxious to work on the longer distances and explore all the other ammo choices available. For the close in HD distances, I am feeling much more familiar and confident. Apart from some older, non-brass ammo that was stored too long, my KSG has been flawless with zero failures (knock on wood). I will be taking an HD course next month and will install my Christmas present, the M-Carbo Trigger Kit, to lose the slop and reduce the 7+ pounds of trigger pull to 3+ pounds. The MBUS sights are fine, but at the close ranges, I've worked an equal amount on the 'point and shoot' method, which with my 2 point sling and the KSG super snugged into my shoulder, the recoil is negligible and the accuracy dependable (in that 7' to 15' range). "Practice makes perfect" in all things!
