First Semi-Automatic Shotgun Help

Postby sconlin2 » Tue Oct 29, 2013 10:38 pm

I am looking to buy my first Semi-automatic shotgun. I mostly duck hunt and trap shoot. I have been looking at the Stoeger M3500, Remington 11-87, and the Weatherby SA-08. Anyone have experience with these guns or some suggestions?

Those guns are quite dissimilar. I have the 11-87 and SA -08. The Weatherby Waterfowler 3.0 is my favorite if I need to walk very far. It is much lighter and quicker handing than my other duck guns. Really a good all around field gun.

None are particularly good trap guns, so pick your poison. They are lower priced field guns and tend to shoot flat.

i would take the remington because it is reliable and has been around for a while so they have worked out all the kinks a while ago. Although, trap loads might not cycle in your gun.
