O.F. Mossberg and Sons was recently awarded the Shooting Industry Academy of Excellence 2009 Shotgun of the Year award for the Mossberg 930 SPX (Special Purpose Extreme). The shotgun is similar in function to Mossberg’s other 900 series autoloaders and features a 7+1 shot capacity with a Choate magazine extension, 18.5″ cylinder bore barrel, LPA ghost ring rear sight with winged fiber optic front sight and black synthetic stock. “We are extremely pleased with the award from Shooting Industry Acedemy of Excellence.” said Iver Mossberg, CEO of O.F. Mossberg and Sons Inc. “Mossberg continues our never-ending quest to inject the most versatility and value out of a single firearm, and we knew we had something special on our hands with the 930 SPX.” The 930 SPX sells for around $600 in stores.
This past Sunday, I was invited out to Canandaigua Sportsmen’s Club to do some tactical shooting with Ron Lauinger of LMI, Inc. When I arrived there, Ron was already stapling various zombie targets to stands, and he said we would be hunting zombies today! I was already excited.
After chit-chatting with Ron for a while, I already had a good feeling that he knew what he was talking about and I was in for a great learning experience. Once more people started to arrive, and after the range was set up properly, the training began.
I use the term “training” fairly loosely here not because I didn’t think it was an adequate training, but because it was really a bunch of firearms enthusiasts who wanted some extra tactical training. Ron is happy to offer this to fellow enthusiasts on Sundays.
So, I loaded up my Mossberg 500 Tactical with some target loads and head down to the field, where the targets were set up, to meet Ron. At first we talk about some tactical ways to reload, better ways to hold the shotgun, and what to do once the zombies have been shot in the face. We then procede to run through some drills with various scenarios.
What a blast, though. I cannot emphasize enough that within the two hours I spent with Ron and my shotgun, I had learned a great deal both about good ways to handle my firearm, as well as how to manuver tactically with the shotgun.
For anyone in the Rochester, NY or surrounding areas, I would definitely try to contact Ron (who is a current vendor on NY Firearms) and see about coming to his Sunday adventures.
I can’t wait for more tactical firearm training. It is probably one of the best things to learn, especially if you own a firearm for home defense. I will continue to review the various training sessions I go to.
Be safe everyone.
