    .....How are they, as far as HD/just for kicks? Strongly considering their 12 ga, just wanting some testimonials.

    Would rather have a benelli m1 super 90. Honestly unless you put a lot of work into them they just don't seem to run (if you run them hard). I watch the Cav Arms guys go bolt action shotgun at the matches such as SMM3Gun. The RnR racing guys pretty much replace and machine a replacement for everything on the gun, but theirs seem to run.

    In the end the benelli's are still the dominate shotgun.

    Well this is the opinion of a competition shooter. For a fighting gun I would want a remington 870 pump or a benelli

    i dont consider a saiga a HD gun bc of all the comments i see about loaded mags deforming the rounds so they dont always feed.

    All it takes is one shot and you'll want one.

    I love mine

    They might not be up to Yar's 3 gun standards, but they're great for HD and occasional skeet/trap

    I'm sorry other people's opinions matter that much to you. I just like to go have fun shooting skeet.

    Why would I shoot skeet with a S12 when I have a perfectly good silver pigeon in the safe?:ughj:

    why wouldn't you?

    this statement

    "I'm not going to be "that guy" at the skeet range with a mag fed shotgun"

    just reeks of insecurity

    It's like hitting a screw with a hammer, just the wrong tool for the job.

    Honestly I see them as toys. Fun for a while, but toys in the end

    A pump action will always be more reliable and has the ability to reload at any point. A normal semi auto shotgun can also be very reliable (ex a5) and has the ability to top off.

    Why do people think S12's are unreliable? They're AK's... i've never had one issue with mine.

    Because AK's are the most reliable weapon ever :mamoru:

    But now its because they are made out shit steel and put together by 5yr olds in Russia. I mean hell the bolt deforms if you top off your magazines after chambering a round :coolugh:

    for clays i'd prefer a double barrel with 2 different chokes so if i have to take a second shot i can keep a tighter pattern since the clay is gonna be farther down range. but the thread was about HD, i don't own a saiga nor have i shot one but in theory it seems like it would be a monster for hd, 20 shotgun shells loaded up and ready to go lol, if it takes more than that you deserve to lose

    That's like a quarter of the appeal right there...

    That, and the contemptuous sneers from the bolt-action purists that still manage shitty groups in spite of their lead sleds, bore swabbing after every shot, and 10+ minutes between shots....
     
  24. Sounds like you're familiar with my local rifle range. :mamoru:
