Aguila Minishells

Anyone tried these for defense work? I've tried the 12 GA 4B+1B (7 4s and 4 1s)and they are impressive. Mine mike 1.34 inches COL and clock 1150 fps with remarkably low recoil. Essentially, they double the capacity of your magazine.

Catch is that they don't cycle well in all pumps - good in Win 1300 and less than perfect in Rem 870. Since I have an 870, I'm wondering how it might be modified (Aguila instructions say this is a simple fix).

Doubles are the way to go for non or limited experience shooters for defence shotguns, since they remove nearly all the functions that repeaters require. Manual safety, rather than auto safety, would be preferrerable and store open and loaded. The neophyte then can see that it is loaded, and knows open is safe closed is ready. An untrained shooter will either solve their problem with the two shots available or be in more trouble than they can solve so additional rounds matter little.
