"...but the speed of the semi-auto in the hands of an EXPERIENCED user is awesome. The pump can't match it."
This is not my experience. I am a VERY experienced user with my Benelli M2. I have put thousands of rounds through it and taken formal shotgun classes at two different shooting schools. I am much newer with a pump gun. My result,
When using birdshot, the semi is much faster than the pump. When using 00 buck, the speed gap between the two is very small.
Did Ayoob's tape show the exact same shooter shooting both a semi and a pump for time with 00 buck? It could have been the shooter. For a valid test, the individual should be tested with both a pump and a semi.
