    My company, Carbon Arms, has been at the forefront of development of shotgun loading systems and techniques. We brought out the first US made TWinS load, introduced the Quad load to the US market and have fairly deep support in the 3Gun arena.

    Some videos: http://www.youtube.com/user/markpcolo?feature=mhum

    Anyway, I need some volunteers in these specific areas:

    Active duty LE/MIL who do NOT shoot 3Gun (yet is okay) to evaluate our product in the entry/breaching/SORT environment. I am NOT asking you to put it on the street, but to to T&E in the training realm. 3 Total.

    Bird Hunters again who do not shoot 3Gun. 3 Total.

    I will provide to you one unit set up how you prefer and in exhange, all I ask for is the following back: Test it out extensively. Then report back to me on suitability, adaptability, ergonmics, your honest opinion and ideas.

    If you are interested, please send me a PM.

    Might be. As long as they are willing to provide regular T&E and report back. I am not looking to send out samples all over, but get some solid feedback from some regular folks.

    It being used and reporting their findings wouldn't be a problem. They don't baby their stuff when hunting and if there is a chance of it being broken it would be them. :embarassed:

    I sent out a bunch of product to volunteers today. I picked based on those who seemed enthsuasitc about testing and had the diversity I was looking for.

    Thanks, we will see what they think.

    I shoot about 500-1000 rounds per month! That's about 4-8 bricks/month. Each BRICK is 5x25!!! This would be an excellent "DISPLAY TOY" at the Los Angeles Outdoor Shooting Range. The other Skeet shooters would BE ASKING LIKE CRAZY ABOUT THIS. If you send me a kit, I need about 100 cards to give out while shooting at the North Los Angeles Ranges... PS: resume bio at johnjasonchun.com cell, address, resume, bio, balance sheet at that web site!
    I shoot with relatives (guys) at Burro Canyon Shooting park Azusa & 2nd Range is Angeles Shooting Range LLC
    12651 Little Tujunga Canyon Rd, Lake View Terrace, CA 91342

    Get directions

    I do 3-gun and have 2 of your FSL8's, love them... my home range has the only official Olympic sized skeet range in the PNW. I routinely get asked about my Carbon Arms systems when I practice shooting skeet for upcoming flyer stages at 3-gun matches.

    MarkCO,

    If you ever have a need for just a regular guy to test out your gear, for a defensive application, I'll volunteer, as I do alot of 12-gauge shotgun combat shooting with my Remington 870.

    Sorry to hear feedback is so sparce. I didn't see it/was not in your "target" group. I have done reviews on some non gun items in past. Folks seemed to like the info, sometimes I saw changes (along lines) of my suggestions. Other times not.
    If you want another person to look it over. I will try it, give you my opinion. I don't have a semi auto shotgun. (If that matters)
