The new VEPR 12ga shotgun is one of the most exciting new products I've seen in 2012. The VEPR 12ga is not a Saiga by another name, it's a totally different shotgun that has some important improvements. If you're into 3 Gun shooting, you might want to seriously consider this shotgun.
I know things are crazy right now with panic buying. Hopefully we can defeat the pending AWB in Congress and prices and availability will return to normal later in 2013.
