    What is this thingy?

    This is kinda what my Supernova will look like once I get my hands on it. This is a Nova, but it's similar. What's the little thingy between the mag extension and barrel?

    Oh...'cause I have a mag extension for it and it didn't come with one. Are they just generic fitment thingies?

    Pretty much. It's just a clamp. It also usually has a handy sling swivel on the left side, so one can attach a mall ninja three-point "tactical" sling.

    So...how is that different from a regular sling? I mean, I say just get a standard sling and wear it like a normal person.

    I mean, I'm putting a red dot on mine when I get it, but not an Aimpoint. I think it's pretty unnecessary to have a $400+ scope on a shotgun that can't group better than 5-6" at 50 yards. I'll be getting a cheapo, but I'll still zero the ghost rings.

    Did you actually read the product description? It's totally different from a standard two-point sling...at least if you know about guns and fighting with them. But you don't need a tactical sling, anyway, so it's a moot point.

    I'll be getting a cheapo, but I'll still zero the ghost rings.
    I wish your cheapo dot sight a lot of luck standing up to 12 gauge recoil.

    js, tactical shotguns are pretty commonly outfitted with dot sights now. They offer the same advantages on a shotgun as on carbines and pistols.

    No, I didn't read the product description. I figured it was similar to the backpack straps on my golf bag...you can wear it like a backpack instead of just slinging it over your shoulder, which helps when you're playing 18 holes in the summer heat.

    Well it's only about $50, so if it shatters with a slug, I'll probably get something nicer.

    Put the dot on the target and pull the trigger.

    heck.. my 870 with sabo slugs does 3" groups... it's worth it, but then again, depends on what you are hunting..
