Thank you.

I do, shot my first deer with it this season. Deer didn't run too far. You cannot install a scope on the barrels that come in this combo (unless they change it and I don't think so from your description), so I had to buy an extra barrel from Walmart.com for 150. It came with a Bushnell scope and that scope should be OK to use. However, I changed that scope to "Bushnell Banner Dusk & Dawn" and I think it's a bit better than that for some extra eye relieve. But I don't think it's that much better than the one coming with the barrel, I just happened to have one already.

I like lighter recoil and my shotgun shoots accurate up to 100 yards with Winchester SuperX Sabot slugs.

PPS I actually thought that I can sell the barrel to you (with my scope on it) for $150 (you'll save on sales tax and I will pay shipping myself) since I am relocating to the west where I would rather need a high-powered rifle than a shotgun with a scope. And if you want to stop by, I live in Milwaukee and I'd be glad to show it to ya...
