Completely agree. I had a Mossberg 930SPX, semi auto, nice shotgun for the money. I now have a Benelli M4 (also referred to as an M1014 or a Super90 M4). I carried it in Iraq and Afghanistan, semi auto, recoil operated weapon (different than most shotguns). Very little felt recoil, extremely accurate. Not once did I ever have a malfunction and used it extensively. Can shoot 3" rounds one handed like a pistol and it doesn't come out of your hand (great for breaching a door). Phenomenal weapon, but very expensive. I have an ATI collabsile stock, grip, and extended tube on mine. When you ghost load it, it holds 9 2 3/4" rounds. I highly recommended it, if its out of the budget look for the Mossberg mentioned above.Nothing with just a pistol grip on the rear. They are worthless movie props.
That's my take on the shotgun...KISSKISS.Mossberg 500.wood stock with a limbsaver pad.18.5 cyl bore barrel,20in spare rifled barrel for slugs.mine came with a 24 in modified barrel originally,barrel swaps are easy on this one.
thinking about a kicklite stock sooner or later.
NEITHER! You are paying for gussied up Hollywood marketing and if you ever have to use it do you want the prosecuting attorney to hold up some scary as shit looking death metal shotgun? Here is the tip of the century. Essentially 99% of ALL shotguns function the same way. Why would you get one that could get you in trouble just because it saw the light of day.
