  1. In general, many factors at play with firearms production and distribution. High Civilian Demand. Production Facility Processes modified for COVID19 resulting in slowed production. Parts Suppliers (domestic and international) impacted by COVID 19 government restrictions. Some labor forces issues due to stay-at-home orders or quarantines. Transportation impacted by prioritization of other logistical needs during pandemic. Department of Defense contract delivery dates have not been delayed. For example, USMC Benelli M4s are being delivered per contract schedule. You can see the same process of delays happening with ammunition. Hopefully, by August production, distribution and delivery will be back to normal?
  2. Check your local community for firearms courses of instruction on "home defense". Many shooting ranges/academies/centers provide classes covering protecting your family and home. Your spouse can attend to learn, as well. Most "Home Defense" courses of instruction will cover firearm types, techniques and tactics, as well as, safe room setup, surveillance, and the most important item being maintaining Situational Awareness.
  3. Whoa! Extremely Rare, but also, EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE!
  4. Make sure Botach actually has this item in stock. I ordered an item 6 months ago from them and immediately got an email notification of "On Backorder"; after 2months of waiting I cancelled the order. It took 2 weeks before my credit card was reimbursed.
  5. I don't use it as a "hand grip". I use it as a "hand stop" making it easy to rapid reload from the forward 2-shell holder. Also, cant' be seen from the picture but there is a side-mounted flashlight on the other side with a pressure switch on the Magpul vertical grip. I used the pictured Magpul vertical grip because I had it in my box of picatinny attachments that I've gather over the years.
  6. The M4 issued to me was a service shotgun for duty and it was keep in the a military armory when not issued. I rarely got the same serial numbered M4 issued, but they all shot the same.
  7. A M4 was issued to me while in the US Navy and attached to 5th Fleet in 2002; best shotgun I had ever used - reliable, accurate, good trigger, and well balanced. I bought my civilian M4 in 2012 and by 2013 had completed several 922r compliant upgrades.
  8. There are many options for a home defense M4 shotgun. Options will add weight and length, but you can tailor to your defense desires, size/shape of your home complex, and your personal physical characteristics. Personally, my primary home defense firearm is my S&W M&P15T, but I do have my Benelli M4 as a backup.

    M4 cycling

    If this is what you are experiencing, then it can occur with low recoil or some types of birdshot rounds. If you are able to shoot from the hip per your scenario with 00-buck then the M4 is operating properly. Just as with a pistol you can "limp-wrist" a FTF, then same thing can happen with a semi-auto shotgun - call it "limp-hip" FTF.
  10. This is a good primer on Benelli M4 902r compliance: http://homedefenseweapons.net/947-benelli-m4-922r/
  11. I have an Aimpoint Micro T1 on my M4 with a low mount LaRue quick detach (LT661 Short QD). Even with this low mount you will not be able to co-witness with iron sights; obviously you can easily see the front sight though the Aimpoint, but can't see to align with rear sight. However, the LaRue Quick Release easily detaches with use of one hand; therefore, if Aimpoint fails, then remove. If complete co-witnessing is your desire without an extra step detaching a malfunctioning red-dot, then use a Trijicon RMR style red dot.
  12. Trulock Tactical Choke for Benelli. http://www.brownells.com/shotgun-parts/choke-tubes-accessories/choke-tubes/12ga-tactical-mobilchoke-choke-tube-prod72023.aspx
  13. See this link: http://www.hornady.com/store/Superformance-Slugs
  14. I have not found any round (slugs, buck, steel, 3" magnum, etc.) that did not function properly. Primarily use Hornady brand. I've mixed buck and slug in the same magazine tube with no problems. I do clean the M4 after every range or hunting event and follow the recommended lubrication noted in the M4 manual. Note: I did have some feed issues for the first 100 rds from the M4, but I consider that a '"break-in" period event. For the break-in event use 00Buck.
  15. The law-abiding citizen follows and knows the rules [922r regulations, permits, ATF tax fees, background checks, SBR/SBS paperwork, federal firearms restrictions (i.e. gun free zones) etc.]. These same law-abiding citizens have to educate the police, lawyers and other citizens about their own rules. While educating, keep writing your Congressman and Senators about the over-regulated, out-of-control bureaucracy called the BATFE.
