HD shotgun at the gun show
At the gun show yesterday, I was mainly looking for a semi auto model, that could take or had a pistol grip full length stock, and would have lots of options available in the aftermarket. I already knew the Mossberg 500 and the Remington 870 were the most popular models, but of course, pump actions. The "same" guns in semi auto were considerably more. I was told these were the Rem 1100 and the Mossberg 930.
Then I saw a Charles Daly "Field Tactical" in the same range as a 500. Pistol grip, 7+1 capacity, all black, 12 gauge semi auto. $305 brand new. I thought this was a fantastic price, but the guy in the booth said it's kind of like a Walmart gun.
What do you guys think? This gun will only leave the house for practice. Is it a piece of junk? Or is it an "OK" shotgun?
Another issue is I need Laurie to be comfortable shooting this weapon, at the range yesterday one of the guys said a 20 gauge would be easier for her to handle, without much difference in performance. I need help guys, and this is where I get it so thanks in advance for any ideas.
