try to ban, what would I buy?



Or put another way.

What is "the" autoloading 'tactical' shotgun to have?

While I haven't dropped money into making it tacticool, I like my 11-87 Police with walnut stocks and a Scattergun Tech +1 extension/sling swivel. Yeah, I could have bought a +2 and had it reach the end of the barrel, but for some reason I really like the way it looks with the magazine tube slightly shorter than the barrel.

I've been wanting a Franchi SPAS-12 lately. I can't afford it, but I want it.

I've taken the 930spx kool-aid. I really like them, but that said, there are many good ones out there. My buddy uses a Remy competition master and it's pretty damn nice, and we mustn't forget the really spendy Italian models. Of course you could have two 930's for the price of a Benelli or a Berretta, and what's the Arfcom rule: 2 is 1, and 1 is none.

Maybe the saiga-12 mag fed shotgun, and if there is extra left over, a Knoxx sidewinder kit for a Mossberg 500.

Without a doubt, the Saiga 12. Nothing screams "ban me" more than an affordable detachable magazine-fed auto loading 12 gauge
imported from Russia.

Benelli M1/M3/M4. I've got a M1 and M3, best shotguns hands down. Working on a M4...ridiculous prices nowdays!

I also throw in my opinion for the FN Self Loading Police.

i take offense to that statement bubba. i'm a liberal but i sure do love my firearms. which i guess would only make me half a liberal? so i guess i'm only half offended. i kid about the offended part. but i've heard great things about the spx, and it's a good deal for the price you pay.

I've never felt any draw for an SBS before... but the last on the right makes me smile...

I 100% agree with this statement.

It just depends on which flavor Kool-aid you prefer. I bought the Mossberg 930SPX, and a friend bought the Benelli M4, one runs as good as the other, the only difference is I can buy a lot more rounds to run through mine. The friend is really wishing he would have bought a Mossberg. Just my .02

I have a 930 spx and it is sweet but if I were a failed bank CEO I'd buy a tromix saiga 12 SBS with a drum. I've never shot one but they look like pure evil. Me likey

I'm a Remington fan, and it is the lowe end of the cost spectrum if you talk used and tricked out on your own... next up would be the Mossberg 930s then you've got a bunch of stuff, semi custom remingtons, benelis< FN etc...

But the ultimate evil/banable shotgun is the tricked out (tromix type) Saiga

well as a guy who shoots skeet almost everyweekend I've come accross almost every single auto shotty made with the exception of the rare exotics (IE spas, street sweeper types).
I will tell you that the 11-87 is a peice of junk. It is an absolute jam factory. Avoide it like the clap. The 1100 is not much better. however if the 1100 is kept clean it will function as advertized. But you must clean the dam thing after only a few boxes of ammo or guess what; Jam city Save the hate speach guys I have seen it with my own eyes and no one will convince me otherwise that the 11-87 and 1100 are not bullshit shotguns sold on there name alone.
The real troopers on the skeet field are the beretta's 390/3901/391 and the benelli's. With the beretta you cannot extend the magazine, So as a tacticle shotgun it would be limited to 4 shots total. Not too good.
With the benelli's you can extend the magazine and it is prolly the best auto loading shotgun made. It is also expensive. Mossberg has a nice auto; the 930. It is resonably priced, so far my buddy's (which he swapped a jam factory 11-87 for) is performing wonderfully with minimal cleaning and maintenance. ( i know i was shocked a mossberg are you fricken serious?)
It has a very fair price and many options allow you to hunt or shoot skeet/trap with it on the weekend and then take it home swap a few parts out and have a kick ass combat shotgun that you are very familar with using and in a high stress encounter with a crook you deffeinately want somthing you know wont jam, has decent fire power and youve practiced with countless times. Personally with the way my buddy's performs it is the perfect shotgun if you want one that is versitile enough to do everything, relaible, and cost effective. Again i shoot skeet almost every weekend and i have come across the good and the bad. I know imma get some haters tryin to tell me im a fool, but they dont shoot their combat style 1100's and 11-87's as often as i shoot skeet i can guarantee you that. One that I did not mention is the saiga-12. I have absolutley no expierence with it nor does anyone i know. I cant coment about it, but im interested thats for sure.
