Not exactly. You'd need a wet vac or carpet shampooer, not a vacuum.

Why do you need sights on a shotgun?

There are lots of reviews and opinions, most place the TS 12 over all other similar shotguns. Since uncle Sam was paying I got the TS12.

I've shot both of those and didn't like them. Just not my thing. I do like my Bullpup chambered in 5.56, though

The only thing I need for the Tavor is a sling. Carrying it single handed by the grip will get tiring after a while. I've never shot a shotgun that eats up the recoil like this one. 15 rounds of buckshot doesn't phase my shoulder at all, and it swings on target so quickly. I don't find it clumsy at all.

Went back to the gun dealer to look at optics with my FIL and ended up buying two colt M4s. One for me one for my FIL. Apparently, Colt has renounced itís American citizenship and these are the last American made ones?

ďColt ends 175 years as an American gunmaker with purchase by Czech firearms companyĒ
https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/comp...ny/ar-BB1dE6e9

Thinking these ones will be collectible and worst case, an excellent inflation hedge.

Sad to see our Republic suffer this welfare state nonsense but ďbetter to light a candle than curse the darkness.Ē
