Dream Shotgun

What's your dream shot and what for (hunting, HD, etc.)?

One of those $25K perazzis. They looks amazing. I'd settle for a higher end Blaser O/U though.

Benelli Vinci in Max 4 camo for Waterfowl. I'm sure I could get one eventually just don't have the funds right now to drop that kind of $ on a shotgun

Well first off let me address the fact you cannot have such a simple thing as an autoloading shotgun with a pistol grip protrusion.

So Benelli is almost all out of the equation, a lot of others, out... those that have conventional stock autos w/ tactical options often skimp or overcharge etc.

So for me, I'd be ECSTATIC with a Benelli M3 Convertible or a Benelli M4 with conventional stocks... In 2010 or maybe? Early 2011, Benelli apparently "accidentially" listed the ComfortTech stock on an M3 and had graphics featuring it... I had money and called up to order, they refused and said I was wrong. I got hung up on. I called back, they said I was wrong, I told them to look it up, they said no way., I finally got a really nice supervisor, she LOADED THE DARNED INTERNET SITE UP and said, Oh yeah, look at that... Shoot. Well you can't have it. I'll get back to you. And a few days later I get told, some kid made his own graphics and uploaded them without permsission but they could not honor it. And my point is, YOU CAN'T JUST TAKE A COMFORTECH AND STICK IT ON AN m3, *it will fit and be fine NJ legal etc* , Yeah, no , sorry. we hate you and btw You Suck!!

So The M3 Convertible is amazing, the M4 is the M1014 Joint Service Combat Shotgun... if I could have either I'd be ecstatic. Especially with the collapsible pistol-grip-stock... Mmm mm... amazing.




Past that, there are a few Remington 870 Police's ive seen that looked amazing ,same with the 11-87.. I'd love an 1187 Police, or an 870P ... I'd also love the parkerizing but maybe the Marine versions also... I alwasy thought alothough I love Mossberg parkerizing, the 590A1SPX in Marine would be so cool.

I kind of have my dream shotgun right now, I really am loving my UTS-15 (I'd say HD, Combating Zombies, and Sport ). Its almost how I want it, just missing one or two bits to be honest.

But I'd love to have an nice rustic O/U, a little weathered, wood not cracked or broken, something with nostalgic character ya know?

A new win 1300 w/ rifled barrel and rifle sights. Was the 1st firearm I ever bought and unfortunately the 1st one I ever sold. Still kicking myself in the behind for that bonehead move

J.C. Higgins 16 gauge bolt action shotgun model 583.14. Like my dad bought in the 1940s. When he sold it, after decades of use, he actually tripled his money. Now that's a shotgun!

I wish I had my MT6 back. I don't shoot a lot of shotgun these days, but it would be great to have for the occasional outing.

A friend has a Benelli Ultra Light that I really like as a handy hunting gun.

Clinical?

SxS 12, wood and blue, some engraving, some case hardened colors, external hammers, and then I wake up. Doctor, can I be helped?

If you are going to dream then you might as well dream big. I'd like one of these:

Perfect, a shotgun so beautiful and valuable that I wouldn't dare use it.

About the only thing you are allowed to do with a shotgun like that is to build a fancier display case for it.

I hunt mostly grouse and woodcock in typical upland environs, so a nice handling, light-weight, well-finished, 20 gauge sxs, bored imp cyl/mod would constitute my "dream" shotgun. So I woke up and bought a Merkel Model 147 EL several years ago and no longer have to pinch myself to see if I'm awake or dreaming.
