A guy at ***** sporting goods

Postby asmythe32 » Sun Jan 13, 2013 10:32 am

I was in there the other day looking at guns. It is the only place within a short driving distance that has a big selection. I was looking over the M2 and talking to the clerk. I asked him if he thought it was worth the extra 600 to go to the SBE2 he said yes. I asked why he felt that way and he said it is great for goose hunting if you want to shoot 3.5 inch shells "and you can float the 4th shell on that gun"I was sort of in shock that the gun counter guy would be telling people this?? I didn't say anything else just handed them the gun back and left. Anyone ever had the gun counter guy tell them something like this? I would hate for him to be selling these guns based on the fact that floating the 4th is possible.

Apparently he doesnt know his guns. You cant float a 4th on a SBE2 unless you modify it.
No contest ring. No gimmicks. No compromising. It’s just pure, raw, balls-to-the-wall, don’t tell your mother, most powerful, non-nuclear duck calling machine on the planet.This call may not be for everyone. But if you can drive it, Game over......

1- As stated, you can not float a 4th shell in a SBE II, but with that being said it is def. worth the money I bought one last year and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

2- *****, IMHO, sucks for hunting gear, decoys, guns etc. All employees I have met are goobers and have the slightest idea of what guys really want. Their buyers are also oblivious. They pulled the "mean" looking rifles from their shelves, including the 22 conversions.

You can also get a ticket from Mr Greenjeans for floaters.

I think it is very unethical to do this as it is against the law. But it makes you wonder how many of these new waterfowl hunters have been told this. Makes me wonder if this leads to the jerks that are shooting at ducks from 60 yards just because they have 4 shells

There are quite a few guys behind those gun counters, especially in stores like *****, that have no clue what they are talking about.

The stoeger m3500 will float forth shell as well which is nice when snow goose hunting during the conservation season good for that but definitely not worth a ticket during duck season.

For an extra $600 you can have an extra Supermag 11-87 sitting there and have 6 shots available. And I believe a second gun is legal.

Hahaha, That was one of those times I'd wished we had a facepalm emoticon, but I completely agree with you.

Funny you'd mention that. I asked the guy behind the gun counter for non-toxic 410 shells. He replied "Will lead work?"

You can take your plug out for conservation season and have mag extensions .....
