those sx2's are nice guns. I have a buddy that has one and it performs nicely. picked it up for a steal too. i think he paid $800 out the door, brand new.

Maybe it's me, but I can't believe the price of shotguns. then again like i said, I see shotguns as a tool and nothing else, the more money you spend, you only increase reliability. this point could be argued, but I'm a rifle/pistol guy. I see a gun's value in terms of accuracy. shotguns are nearly all the same as far as accuracy.

thanks,
brandon.

This not actually a true statement. A SXS and OU have to have the barrels "regulated" or POA/POI will not be true at any range. The "accuracy" of a single barrel needs to be consistent shot to shot just like a rifle and not all gun/ammo combinations will perform this task well.

The little rabbit with the heart sticking out... OUCH! But for the wife, can't go wrong with a 20 gauge Mossberg Bantam mondel... shoter grip and pump action length, made for kids and little people. Good luck...

No more so than all rifles are the same or all pistols. Just like their counterparts in the metallic world, individual guns can have a preference for one load over another

Synthetic stocks are difficult to cut to fit, as most are hollow. 12.5" + 1" recoil pad =13.5", almost the length of a standard stock.

A wood stock can be painted black if you like the look.

Almost the standard length of a rifle....or a youth stock....Standard LOP for shotguns can range from 14-1/4 to 14-3/4, with variations on either end of the scale
