New shotgun

Picked up a Charles Daly Field Tactical 12ga today for $250 out the door with tax..looking for a stock with a pistol grip, and maybe a handguard with a flashlight mount on it.

Any ideas?

I've heard that some parts are interchangable with the 11-87, is that true?

Yep, leave it unaltered and turn boat load of shells into a pile of hulls.

Nice looking collection,

Im curious why you went with the charles daly if the plan was to modify it? I would think that mossberg and remington would have a lot more aftermarket.

And have you ever shot a PGO 12ga? not a fun time. But hey you'll have the coolest mall ninja set up ever.

Two reason I bought the CD. One was the cost. $250 out the door from Big 5 is very affordable entry into shotguns. Also, the ergonomics. Its very lightweight, which I like. I tried some Mosbergs and Benellis, but the pump action was too far out for me to comfortably operate with my stubby arms. The CD is just long enough for me, and feels similar to my AR.

I fired a shotgun about 10 years ago in Boy Scouts...knocked me on my ass. I was around 12-13 at the time...
I'll be going to try some trap shooting next week, when the weather warms up here.

Yeah, PGO I dont think I'd keep for more than a last resort home defense weapon...had one for a short time (Winchester 1300 XTR), but later sold it to a friend after his apartment got broken into...never shot it.
