Should I buy a 10Gauge

I currently own the eat all Mossberg 835 3.5" Chamber w/Rifled Slug barrel, I am looking for another fun gun. Considering a Benelli M3, or a Remington pistol grip pump in 12gauge. I know already that Remingtons and Mossys are no better than the other so I figure I should have one of each. I walk into the gunshop and bam! there is a shotgun straight outta Doom II Hell on Earth, no idea who makes it but I know its a 10 gauge side by side. So I picked up my M15 and I left. Should I buy a 10 gauge demonslayer or get another eat all pump gun?

Okay let me rephrase the question, which is a smarter purchase a 10 Gauge Side by Side or another 12 Gauge Tactical pump, neither of which I have any definitive use for?

10ga shells will be harder to come by---and expensive.

unless you handload the 10 gauge won't be much better than some high end 3 1/2 12's.

I bought a 10g single shot year before last just because, the New England Arms Turkey gun model with the 24" barrel. I've not gone Turkey hunting yet but I wanted that big boomer and man, it does wonders on stationary targets!

You want it, get it. The 10g shells are pricey but it's my hobby and I'll pay if I want to and can!
