    Well I want to get a gun, I plan on going in for my pistol permit when time and money permit but for right now I wanted to get a shot gun. My father has a few and the bigger of the two he has is a 12g and its fun to shot. I love magnum shells and a tree stump ha ha ha. But I was looking into what I should get.

    What is a pistol permit?? It would suck if you have to "go for" a special permit in order to be allowed to exercise a constitutional right.
     
  4. +1 The Mossberg and Remington are the standard pump shotguns.

    Go with 11-87 Police or an 1100 and but the barrel down. Autos are 100 times more fun to shoot then pump guns.

    How much of a pain is it to clean autos? I hear they get pretty filthy.

    depends on the auto. The 1100/11-87's kind of need to be real real clean. The big thing is you need to stay of top of the o'ring and keep the piston and the tube the piston rides on clean. For me this meant scotchbrite pads. Pretty much buffing the grime off. Honestly it was a real pain if you shoot a lot. At big matches I would break down my shotgun during lunch and clean it for the 2nd half of the day.

    If you go with a benelli they don't get very dirty at all. I clean it like once a month and I shoot 400 - 600 shells a month.

    Semi is what I'm looking at, auto shot gun would only be a bad thing as this would be my first gun that I actually own so it will get quite a bit of use. Yeah you need a permit in CT to own one and to carry it.

    If you could have any benelli the best is the benelli m1 super 90 (m1s90 for short). The hot configuration is 21" barrel, vent rib with choke tubes. These are no longer in production but expect used ones to sell at production prices or higher.

    The alternative is the benelli m2s90.

    There are other configurations but what you want is a m2 or m2.

    If you clean your gun you will have no problems with a gas operated simi. Yar only cleaned his so much because it was running 100s of shells through a day in competitions. Plus don't kid yourself even if this will be your only gun your not going to shoot a shot gun that much.

    My 1100 was very pleasant to shoot slugs. That was one of the major pluses. Heavy semi auto with lots of mass and gas operated.

    The benelli is much lighter but has way more recoil. I really love the benelli. If you had the extra $$$ definately get the benelli you will not be sorry. Just understand they are $1000+ if not twice the price of a 1100/11-87

    while i may not be as knowledgeable, i fully endorse this. the benellis are truly amazing.

    one thing that i didnt care for on the 1100 was the width/thickness of the gun. its far to bulky for what i wanted (skeet) and just didnt sit right on me.

    as for shooting a lot during the summer we go up to are camp to work on it, we bring guns up every time to do so. I don't really know much about the different models of guns. I have some knowledge but not much.
