They had no Remington 11-87's (my second choice) except for a slug gun... which is not what I was really in the market for...

after browsing a bit and looking at some other things I asked "Well what do you recommend"...

and I was presented with Excalibur, The Benelli M2 Tactical ....... basically The Shotgun In The Stone.... amazing.

Simply Awesome...

but $1150 .... which was double the price of the other ones I was looking at ( double the most expensive 11-87 with two barrels I saw a week earlier at Dicks)...

What can you tell me? Should I do it? It seems AWESOME but he told me, it's simply for home defense... Not for shooting clay pigeons, not for the range, certainly not for hunting... And I really like versatility...

Plus, I have my eyes on some stuff at Dick's in my area.. a Remington 700 SPS Varmint .308 scoped package for 500 and a Remington 11-87 combo for 650... could have both for the cost of the Benelli... I don't know, you guys tell me please...IT WAS AWESOME THO. I am actually suprised I Didn't just buy it on the spot, very unlike me...
Yeah,the Benelli M2/M4''s are super nice, but DAMN they're expensive. Are they THAT much better than the Rem.and Mossy semi-autos to merit costing double the price. IMHO,no they're not. Don't get me wrong, I would LOVE to have an M4, but $1500+ ? To me,that's just insane.

What about a Saiga 12 ? You could get 2 S-12's for the price of 1 Benelli M2 and 3 for the price of an M4.
