Well, finally able to go out ot the range last week. Brought my 930 spx and my sawed off revelation (mossberg 500 basically). we brought various ammo with us. Our main goal was to test the reliability and break in of the 930. I have tried from express long range, buckshots, slugs and EVEN wally world 100 rd pack and it had no problem. So much so that i bought another 3 of those 100 rd pack. Me and my buddy had big ear to ear grin shooting various loads through my SPX. Loved it and the controls. Never bumped the bolt release by accident - it even simplifies operation, 1 button to do it all haha. Anyway enjoy the pics: forgot which target is mine but my friend is the one in orange getup - never handled a shotgun before. he did shot my AK last time we went out. Both targets are from 15 yds away. Check out the muzzle blast from the express long range NOW it did have malfs BUT due to bad ammo. Beware of the "spartan" brand buckshot. 25 rds for 11 or 12 bux at academy. I would say 30% of the shot resulted in these: see the bulge on the brass? Well, it swelled up in the chamber and the SPX could not extract it. No issues with other ammo. And those of you who are still thinking of the SLP Vs this, TTAG did a 500 rd test with both guns http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/201...tion-shotguns/ Anyway I loved mine. I bought it at a gun show, had them shipped me a 6rd side saddle and a barrel clamp. It's under my bed as my primary HD weapon. YMMV EDIT: I would like to add, that earlier models have had quality control issues. Funny thing is that When i bought my SPX at the gun show, i didn't have enough time to fill in 4473 and did the background check (after church and my 2 yr old in tow - She pooped and want to eat at the same time. Placed food order, then change diaper, then pick up food. Wife was working at that time). So the vendor told me that they will keep my info, ran the NICS when they get back to their store and hand me the SPX 3 weeks later when they would be returning to another gun show (same venue, just 3 weeks later). I put a deposit down and we met 3 weeks later. During that time i did my research and hoped that mine would be the later model and thank God it is.
