    Thanks for all the replies to my shotgun thread, I went to the gunshop last week and looked at a few. One of the weirdest things about the mossberg 500 was that you had to pull the trigger to pump it or unload it? whats that about?

    Anyway, Are there any fully semi automatic shotguns out there that are legal to buy? I consider myself a gun newb, so I apologize in advance.

    Yes, semi auto shotguns are perfectly legal to own. Almost any company that makes pump actions will also have semi autos. Take a look at remingtons....

    What is fully semi automatic? Thats like saying full but empty ;)

    To the left rear of the trigger guard on the 500 is the bolt release that will let you open the gun without having to pull the trigger.

    :werd: You should be able to hit the Action Release with your middle finger when you are gripping the gun.

    Yeah, the bolt release is by the trigger guard, I like it alot more where it is than the 870's.

    Now if Mossberg just made their safety on the trigger guard, it'd be way more user friendly than an 870.

    The Maverick 88 trigger pack is a replacement for 500 series shotguns, and has the safety on the trigger guard. It's not a drop in replacement, though.

    Stoegers on average have a lower rate of returns than Benellis too.
