Well, I'm FINALLY getting things settled, and starting in 2 weeks I just might have *gasp* spending money!! So, while I want to save for my new TV, I've been looking at the collection, which isn't massive mind you, but decent. It's comprised of: -A C9 pistol -995 Carbine -Mosin Nagant M44 -Yugo SKS with folding ATI stock A decent cross section to be sure, and one I'm happy with. With me, until I get a fleshed out application of devices I don't see the purpose of getting, say, two 9mm pistols when I lack a component to diversify my collection. The sport of shooting is better enjoyed by diversity. I'm planning on picking up a Mosin Nagant revolver now that I know I can get an alternate load that isn't nearly as spendy that fires with relative safety, so the vintage revolver is on the list. But, I noticed something that I have yet to add: A shotgun! So, I went looking around. The Mossbergs are nice, but the elusive Maverick 88's that everyone seems to find for less than $200 around the US just don't exist here in Phoenix. My beloved experience with a Winchester 1300 before I had to sell it is still fresh in my mind, but those are creeping up in price...of course... But, while at Big5 Sports buying boots, I looked at the Charles Daly 12 gauge, and was actually quite pleased with it's fit! The build seems solid, and the ergonomics fit great for me. But, I have found little in review of the 18.5" 12 gauge pump. I am pretty sure that what I found of the aftermarket is pretty true: It doesn't exist. But that's ok. I want a stock black 18.5" and this fits the bill nicely, as does the price at $199, which is cheap by Phoenix prices. But it is Turkish, which has been gaining in industrial might in some areas, but I'm just not sure with firearms. I am also unsure of round capacity since info on the net is vauge about it. The poly stock is VERY light, and I'm pretty sure it kicks well on hard, but that might be doable. Any info or personal experience?
