    Working with my wife, who previously had almost no exposure to firearms at all and spending the last year or two infrequently shooting sporting clays, she stays familiar enough with the semi auto to be dangerous... but mostly to herself and others.

    She's intimidated by the pump, but the truth is that she knows that if she really needed it all she has to do is pick it up, cycle the action, shoot, cycle the action... and as long as she's not short-stroking it she'll get along fine.

    With the semi, yes once it's running all she has to do is "press the trigger" but she's also got to get it prepared to press the trigger. Which means either I'm storing it chamber loaded (which I'm not doing) and she has to just disengage a safety she never otherwise uses, or she has to manipulate the bolt which she's also not terribly proficient at, in spite of shooting clays, and which can be awkward even for marginally experienced people (like myself) and isn't made any easier by the weight and balance of a shotgun (especially one with an extended tube and added shells attached).
    I don't understand how she can operate the pump reliably for 6-10 rounds but is befuddled by operating the charge handle on semi one time to load the gun.

    Beretta 1301 Tactical Shotgun Adopted by PA Game Commission

    Accokeek, MD (June 7, 2021) – Beretta USA, a member of the BDT alliance, was awarded a contract to supply the Pennsylvania Game Commission with a customized Beretta 1301 Tactical shotgun after an extensive testing and evaluation process. The 250 shotguns began to be fielded in May of this year.

    “The Pennsylvania Game Commission is excited to make this transition from our legacy pump shotgun and we feel honored to have the opportunity to work with a company like Beretta, who is known for quality, craftsmanship and customer service”, added Warden Travis Pugh, Enforcement Division Chief of the PA Game Commission.

    “The transition to the 1301 Tactical has been greatly appreciated by the entire department”, said Stefano Itri, Vice President of BDT Sales, “The lighter weight, softer recoil, reduced muzzle rise, enhanced accuracy and faster follow-up shots require less training to master when compared to the pump action”.

    The Beretta 1301 Tactical is designed to meet the needs of the modern law enforcement officer. With an 18.5” barrel and a compact overall length of only 37 1/4”, this lightweight shotgun is fast handling yet controllable. Magazine capacity is 7+1. Beretta’s reliable, field-proven, semi-automatic shotgun features an oversized charging handle, large textured bolt release, and an oversized reversible safety button. The integrated BLINK gas operating system allows the 1301 Tactical to cycle 36% faster than any other shotgun on the market. Special features of the Pennsylvania Game Commission shotguns include a Mesa Tactical Urbino® stock with adjustable cheek piece with LimbSaver® recoil pad and a SureShell® six-round carrier with an integrated receiver length aluminum Picatinny rail to support mounting optics, lasers or other accessories. A Nordic Components MXT magazine tube extension, multiple swivel attachment points, forward Picatinny rail, and flat dark earth finish, round out the package.

    Seriously.?

    You can’t understand how someone that doesn’t otherwise really shoot isn’t comfortable holding a shotgun with one hand on the pistol grip while reaching under or over to run a bolt with tie weak hand vs simply holding the gun in a natural way and moving their weak hand back and forth while supporting the weight of the gun with both hands?

    And what about when racking that bolt doesn’t do what you think it’s supposed to and doesn’t load the round?

    Overall though, this is one of the many reasons I’m trying to get her off the notion of the shotgun and just stick to the pistol. Way less fiddle fart.

    But, if she decides she thinks she wants a shotgun that works like her belays gun, I get to buy a 1301
    Does the above offend? If you have paid to be here, you can click here to put it in context.

    To be clear, this is not a comment on you or your wife...

    Maybe I do it wrong, but I leave a shell on the lifter (I ghost load one so I still have a full tube but I could just load one with the release) and if I need the Shotty I'm lifting it up by the forend with my off hand and running the bolt with my strong hand, then transitioning it to the grip. This way it can only do one thing... Load a round. Technically it could also jam I suppose but we can "what if" shit to death.

    Sheesh, I was on the Arms Unlimited notification list about 1301s being back in stock but apparently opening the email 33 minutes after it was sent was too slow.

    They were probably out of stock by the time you got the email. It can take up to 4 hours for the automated system to send them out to everyone on the list.

I can't imagine that manufacturing costs would be much higher for a stock with a more ergonomic shape (setting aside for a moment the costs for licensing; after all, Beretta could design their own stock with many of the same attributes). Virtually no one is buying a 1301 Tactical to shoot clays so a shorter LOP and higher comb would be great for all customers.
    But the Aridus adapter is already tooled, and a 1301 version of the SGA isn’t. Turn key vs. needing development.

    Has anyone using the Nordic extension clamp tried lining it with something to minimize slipping and marring? Mine is back on again mostly as a light mount.
