A good 10 gague?

I have been looking for a good 10 gague shotgun, but I can't seem to find any, and ammo is difficult to come by. Where do you get your 10 gague ammo? Any suggestions for a good 10 gague gun?

Well, I've never heard of a 10 "gague" shotgun, but I know some good 10 gauge shotguns ...

Remington SP-10
Browning Gold Light 10

...to name two.

I'm curious as to why you want a 10-gauge?

Casp_A has mentioned tow good ones.
You might also want to look at the BPS 10ga, if your into pumps. Mine kicks less than my 12ga semi-autos.
10ga Ammo and shotguns can be found here, at any shooting store(not Chinamart). Winchester Supremes run around $20 a box. That only a $1 more than the same loads in 12ga 3.5 If you reload you will be able to milk the 10ga for all its worth.
I own 2 12ga 3.5's but in reality when conpared to the 10ga the 12ga 3.5 is nothing but a poser.
For geese, conservation snow goose season, and turkeys give me 10ga with it's Pattern Density any day of the week.

SP-10. If you are pass shooting geese with the gun straight up, you'll be thankful for the reduced recoil of the autoloader.

That said, I'd also recommend a used Ithaca Mag-10, but they need lots of cleaning and don't like thick oils in the cold.
