    in California zero. In the USA, not many. Internationally maybe 15%.

    The Saiga is not really good for action shotgun if there is mixed shot stages. Such as stages with a combination of slug, bird, and buckshot.

    In the US we do lots of mixed shot stages, for international action shotgun/3 gun etc all the shot is segregated. You have all birdshot, or all slug, or all buckshot, but never do you have them mixed. Yeah doesn't make much sense.

    Anyway with a traditional tube shotgun if your shooting the slug portion of a stage and you miss, you can finger load just one extra slug. You can't do this with a magazine. So if you run a mag feed shotgun you better not miss. Secondly with a tube fed shotgun you have more options of how many shells you load. You might load a 8 shell stick, or a 6, or a 4. You might finger load 3 or 2. You can be flexable and keep the gun loaded to capacity. You load every time your not shooting and while moving from one position to another.

    With a mag fed shotgun your kind of stuck loading 5 or 10 shell mags. Maybe you start with a drum but they are too bulky to carry more than one. The mags are pretty bulky and load like AK mags. They don't drop free, and you got to pivot them in or out. I'm not even sure if they are faster than techloaders.

    If you were to shoot a bird shot stage with less than 20 round and you used a 20 round drum that would be a advantage for the saiga. Unfortunately in most 3 gun rules you cannot have more than 10+1 in your shotgun in open class. So no 20 round drum.

    Lastly and this is the biggest reason. Shooting a saiga automaticly puts you in open class. So now your racing against guys like me with tricked out rifles and pistols too. Most people shoot in tactical class (iron sighted pistol, non magazine fed semi auto shotgun, and one optic on their rifle) because it's less expensive
