I finally got a chance to shoot my new KSG over the weekend. It's recent manufacture and I'm the first owner of it. Before shooting it, I added a few accessories: Tasco PDP-4 red dot sight. This is an old model no longer made. It's got a 40mm tube and a 10 MOA dot. Surefire flashlight Larue handstop For ammo, I chose Federal Tactical Reduced Recoil #1 Buck. It looks like a great combo of shootability and defense capability. Here are my impressions from the first shooting session: Bullpups kick (duh!!) I didn't realize what the recoil would be initially, even with the reduced recoil load. It's perfectly manageable, but it's different. I have the bruise on my shoulder to prove it. The cylinder bore can still shoot fairly tight patterns with the right ammo. I don't have demonstrable evidence of this, as I couldn't hang a paper target at the range I was shooting at. I was able to only shoot at a three-foot tall, two foot wide stump about 50 years away. Once the red dot was sighted in, few shots kicked up dust around the stump. They seemed to be impacting the stump completely, or almost completely. The slide action on the shotgun isn't as picky as I had been reading about. I made sure to always fully stroke the slide back before moving forward, but I didn't do it in a forceful manner. I just smoothly pulled back and pulled forward. No failures to eject or feed at all. Loading the tubes is a bit of a pain, but got much easier by the end of the session when I was used to it. The factory trigger on the gun is pretty decent. It's nowhere near my 1911, but it's not supposed to be. The Larue handstop is a mistake. The impact of the handstop during recoil is concentrated on my left index finger, which was pretty sore after the first 15 shots. I took it off after that and everything was much better. I'm definitely going to look for a quality front grip that can take the pounding of racking the slide back and forth. Anyone know of one of those? Overall, I like the gun a lot. It's now sitting under the bed as one of the home defense guns at the ready.
