Just a heads up it might be a month away but I was cleaning my HD shotgun and noticed the follower spring was weaker than it should be so ordered a couple of the Nordic ones. Apparently leaving it sitting for years fully loaded was not a good idea.

Also got the Esstac 7rd velcro cards which work pretty well but take some breaking in so that they are not ridiculously tight. After trying them out I probably would have gone with 5 or 6 rounds to better fit the gun in a way that would be less likely to interfere with the action/trigger if I slapped it in the wrong place under stress. Can always cut off the extra loops if necessary but will see how it works out in the Skill Builder first.

Thanks for the early warning!
