Default No love for shotguns?

So I've noticed the shotgun section hasn't been very active lately. Seems everyone wants a rifle or pistol now a days. I love my 590a1 its my favorite gun to shoot and modify. Anyone else love their shotguns most? After all a nice mossberg or remington pump is a true workhorse

I tried to love shotguns, but there really isn't anyplace in the bay area I can play with a shorter barreled non-skeet appropriate shotgun.

I'm really not quite sure I can do with it.

If I'm just going to shoot slugs then I might as well just shoot a rifle.

You just can't beat the shotguns versatility. The old "may as well get a rifle" saying is dumb. Rifles can't shoot slugs, buckshot, birdshot, bean round and tazer rounds. Shotguns are the best gun for all around purposes.

There is great love for the shotgun here.

The love for the shotgun is either held in reverent silence, or in making somewhat inflated statements as to its stopping power.

The love for pistols and rifles on the other hand, is a loud, overly complicated love.

Learn to love the peaceful silence in the shotgun forums. It is a great place to get away from "which scope should I buy for my AR"

In reality shotguns have very limited uses outside of hunting. They are too long for home defense in most residences. Shotguns not fired from the shoulder are very inaccurate at anything past very close range. The most suitable ones for HD (SBS) are NFA weapons which makes ownership for most people unattractive. For short range engagements a semi auto pistol is far better in most cases. A medium to long range a centerfire rifle is king. Combo shotguns such as the M-6 scout or the M30 Luftwaffe drilling are handy survival weapons.

They don't get much movie or TV air time compared to pistols or rifles.

There is always shotgunworld.com where I spend a good portion of time to.

I just put it as to many of today's shooters are not sophisticated enough to enjoy the true majesty and royalty of the "right guns". Every one wants to learn the boring aiming stuff and doesn't have the skill or patience to learn the art and grace of pointing a shotgun. I am also being a smart *** and having fun.

I agree enjoy the not 1000 questions of which scope and rejoice in knowing you have made the right choice with a shotgun.

Oh and don't just take the above with the grain of salt, get at least a 100lbs bag.

My last firearm purchase was a Mossberg 500 with a 7+1 capacity in 12 gauge.
My most expensive firearm purchase was my Beretta 686E O/U in 12 gauge.
I think the SG Forum is quiet because there is not as much to discuss or argue about. SG lovers readily agree that Mossberg and Remington each make good pump actions and Beretta and Browning each make good O/U's at a fair price.
My Mossberg can shoot slugs or shotshells. Although it is an SG, it can function as a rifle. The pump action is super reliable and rarely fails. All of this for under $300.00 plus fees and sales tax.
Yeah, nothing too really talk about...

Interesting but wake me when the .223/20g or even better the .308/12g comes out in camo. Talk about a coyote or pig thumping deal.

"No Love For Shotguns" HA!!!!

I love the bolt-action 16Ga Mossberg 190K that I inherited from my Grandfather. That thing is a hoot to take to the range, and let an unsuspecting friend fire. They pick up and think "hmm its pretty light and only a 16gauge... I doubt it has much recoil". Then they fire it and look at me with a "WTFWT!!!" look on their face. LOLZ!!!! It weighs only 6.75Lbs empty. It kicks worse than my fathers 12Ga Rem 870 Wingmaster. I had one friend who is a Former-Marine fire it and he said the though it was going to break his shoulder. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!. Then I tell them that my 5'2" wife fires it without a buttpad whenever we go shooting. She doesn't even complain a few days later when the briuse comes to the surface.

-ouch1

BTW I am planning on using that beast with some duplex lead-free slugs I found for boar!!!

My 870 tactical is the King of my safe. My AR-15 is the Queen, and everything else is a loyal subject. My bedside .357 mag. is just a courier there to escort me to the King if needed. I have been kicking around the idea of adding a collapsible stock and pistol grip to it, but it hardly seems worth posting in the SG section. That being said, anyone have thoughts on adding these to an 870? Any real benefits?

LOL my username is mossy for a reason.

here is my 590 HD shotgun/range toy with original knoxx specops stock and power pack. i have a mossberg 500 JIC 2 in jail right now and a blackhawk knoxx specops folder, mossberg heatshield kit, and a sling that holds 15 shells being shipped to me. when the mossy 500 is all put together it will take over as my main HD shotgun. the 590 is great but the 20 inch barrel is hard to move around with in small rooms and hallways.

My first and only shotgun (maverick 88 field model) has really been one of my favorite of my collection. A little hunting and skeet with the 28" and buck and slugs thru the 18" plus a few accesories and it fills every bill.
Only thing I still want is a side by side... and a maverick 88 ain't one of those lol

the "Shotgun discussions" section of our forum is well worth visiting; valuable information there, and you'll find threads regarding the pros and cons of various stocks for your 870.

My shotguns don't get much love, but they are about to. I have two that haven't been fired yet, a mossberg 500 persuader and a Saiga 12. Have a Benelli M1Super90 that I've only put a few rounds through. They are all going to the range this weekend to get a workout. Mostly function check and break in. Also want to get a feel for them so I am comfortable for home defense if that is what I choose if the time ever comes for me to defend my home.

I don't shoot my rifles much either. Handgun range is around the block. Rifle range is 40 minute drive. Lately its been mostly rimfire handguns either indoor or steel challenge matches. Maybe some day I will try 3 gun to get more diverse trigger time.

I've had my eye on it for years - or at least the SX3. I have a mossberg 930 in 28" and it's been a great shotgun. My wife is starting to get into trap shooting and she loves the Mossberg (she has shot pumps, browning A5 and Beretta 3901 autoloaders and still likes the Mossberg better). But when we go out we have to share it, so for Father's Day she got me the shotgun I originally wanted but couldn't justify at the time. I got it in a 32" after some advice from others. It will be a dedicated trap gun and I am a tall guy so I figured why not.

Pick it up in a week. Got a date scheduled with the wife on Sunday to try it out. Can't wait.

A plain Jane defense shotgun is fun to own and shoot a few times but shotguns like that quit being fun real quick. On the other hand a nice trap, clays, or skeet gun is a great way to have fun with beautiful guns. You can't own too many or too nice a shotgun.

I think it has more to do with the fact that there is not much to be said. Shotguns are rather simple creatures, not as fancy as AR's, you're never going to see someone asking "what shotgun for shooting at 1000 yards", and they generally just work.

Shotguns like the former, I view them purely as tools. I dont need it, but I would love an old American made 1300 Defender.


And I concur with your comment about the later. Been meaning to get out there and go shoot some trap.

But when we go out we have to share it, so for Father's Day she got me the shotgun I originally wanted but couldn't justify at the time. I got it in a 32" after some advice from others. It will be a dedicated trap gun and I am a tall guy so I figured why not.

Pick it up in a week. Got a date scheduled with the wife on Sunday to try it out. Can't wait.
Jeezbus! 32 inch barrel!? i stuck with the 28 inch barrel, considered the 26 and now i kinda want to shorten it haha i use mine for hunting and it likes to hang up on branchs. your wife is awesome! ya you will def like thgun, easy to disassmble, easy to clean and shoots FAST! i want a second one as a deer gun, too bad i dont have an extra 1300 bucks for a second one (19 and going to college) sometimes i regret spending that much on my first gun but then i fire it and realize how much i love it and how solid it is. of course i could sell my other guns to purchase a second one but i love all those guns too.

Winchester 1300s are such wonderful shotguns!!!

I run a Remmy 870 now, but I still think the 1300 is better (not as easy to get parts for anymore).

For a Trap gun 32" is not long and has its place. Your wife made a good choice.
