I've shot a few so I do understand the ins and outs of them. The whole semi/pump debate etc. I do have a few questions though:
1.) I don't know if I want a 12ga or 20ga. I'm not a big guy, but I'm not afraid of recoil. Plus, 90% of the reason for this purchase would be skeet shooting. So I'd like to be able to shoot a couple hundred rounds and not be dead armed for 2 days lol. Plus, my shoulder bugs me as is so the lesser kick from the 20 would be welcomed.
2.) Since the main purpose is skeet, I think the semi auto would be more beneficial, but at the same time, the sound of running a pump is unbeatable! So I'm open to suggestions on that.
3.) Shotguns I'd like some opinions on:
Benelli Nova or Super Nova (pump; 12 or 20 gauge)
Remington 870 (pump; 12 or 20 gauge) Obviously a best seller worldwide
Mossberg 500 (pump; 12 or 20 gauge) Basically exactly a Rem 870
Mossberg SA-20 (semi; 20 gauge)
With any shotgun I get I know I'll be adding small accessories but nothing major! (said the same about my truck)
And any others that you may think would fit the bill, please throw in some input. I'll either be buying or asking for one for Christmas. Budget would $5-600 for this venture. Pretty much keeps it from me spending too much on the gun I can't afford to shoot it lol
