    Hey would any of you WMDers trust a Chinese made Over/Under or the pump shotgun shown on this website? Normally I'd toss the idea aside, but the prices are pretty tempting. :noes:

    Your thoughts?

    With so many cheap used US made shotguns that are of more known quality and with more parts available I'm not sure that I would. There are some real used shotgun bargains out there.

    I think Walmart has Mossberg Mavericks for sale locally for about $150. Worth a look at the old wally world if its for a pump. Cant say I see many cheap over unders here

    I would consider that O/U for 220 bucks. Norinco firearms aren't so bad, these might be similar in build quality.

    Nowhere here to shoot besides my uncles, but hes never there, and I was taught to always be courteous, so Im not going to show up there alone.

    And Ive been shooting for free my whole life. So I dont think I want to pay $10 an hour. :o

    Ouch. Shooting for free is how I grew up too and I havn't payed yet although I probably will soon.

    I don't really have anyone to shoot with. Well, I do but my friends don't have guns and they just want to shoot mine and use up my ammo so I rarely take any of them.

    Are there any places out in the country that people don't mind you shoot on? I know around here there's a couple places just outside of town that you can shoot at. Nothing great for rifles though, only like 25 yrds :hs: and I like rifles more than handguns.

    I'd trust the Norinco, but for $220 I'd buy a Mossberg.
