    Shotgun Section

    Is there enough interest here for a section for discussions on shotguns?

    I usually run Dad's Browning A5 or the side by side Marlin. I prefer the A5.

    Love my Auto 5...great waterfowl gun that I've been using for 30 years. I have an 1100 Special for birds, and a Benelli M2 for 3-gun. Shotguns are fun, but limited.

    Is the Benelli worth the money over say a Mossberg 930SPX?

    I think the M2 is, at $1100. Not sure that the M4 doesn't exceed that optimal cost-benefit ratio however. Actually, I kind of suspect that the Beretta 1301 may be the best bang-for-buck in that arena.

    I don't have any real experience with the Mossberg in a 3-gun environment...I've only shot it casually. I do like the M2 quite a bit better (fast and light) relative to my needs/wants/expectations.

    I started out as a Remington fan-boy decades ago. Can't seem to shake it. I have shot other brands, and some are awesome, some are okay. Remington seems to be somewhere between those two grades in my opinion. But mine always seem to go bang when asked. Been lucky enough not to have shot a brand that I said, "No Way" to; although I'm sure they are out there. During bird season, the 1187 or 870 will get a plug and bird barrel. Off season, they are dressed a little differently. Chamber empty, four #4 Buck in the tube, four slugs in the side-saddle, five double-ought in the butt-cuff.



    Once upon a time, you got what you paid for. In today's competitive market, sometimes you pay a little extra for the branding. So, any quality firearm is "worth the money" ---------- IF you have the money !

    Back to the OP's original question. I would vote for a Shotgun Section, but can't offer input as to how much interest there is. There have not been a lot of threads started in any of the WEVO forums on shotguns. That may tell the tale.

    Remington has gotten me peeved lately. So much so that I sold my 870. (Wasn't the sole reason).

    My favorite shotgun is the Winchester 1300, but, I worked my tail off for anyone that would pay a 13 year old to clean fence rows for an entire summer saving for a shotgun. At the end of the summer, I bought a Win 1300 with my money. Didn't even have the money for a box of shells!

    For College grad, my mom bought me a Mossberg 500 that recently got a stipple job by Battle Cock (awesome work by the way). It's my bedside gun.

    In the future, when I decide I want another pump, it'll probably be a Mossberg 590. Semi auto wise, not sure. Would LOVE to have a Benelli M4, but I can't justify the costs right now. Maybe after I pay off my daughter (born yesterday), I'll be able to get the M4, or a pistol can, or a Ruger No.1, or.... Well, you get the idea.

    I call my Tromix built Saiga12 'Mr. Giggles' - anyone that shoots it for the first time starts giggling hysterically. Also love my Mossy Mariner 500
