John Gianni создал тему в ShotgunsSo you want to buy a shotgun? As with the previous things I have stated about handguns and rifles (which are in the handguns and rifles section, respectively), your shotgun should be something you actually want to buy and use. There are several types of shotguns so I'm going to get that out of the way right now; also, the smaller number on the gauge (think of it as caliber, but for shotguns) the bigger the shotgun shell. ex: 10 gauge is bigger than 12 gauge. Pump Shotguns: These shotguns are operated by a pump mechanism, the pump being pushed manually to the rearward position not only arms the firing pin(puts tension and locks the spring back, making it able to fire), but also ejects the spent shell if there is one in the bore of the shotgun, it also enables the elevator to retrieve a new shell from the magazine tube. Typically these are one of the most common types of shotguns people will buy, and they can be chambered to hold most gauges: the most common being 12 and 20, but in my experience I have seen a gauge for a shotgun as big as 8 on a pump and as small as a .410. Double barrel shotguns: this particular shotgun comes in 2 varieties; over-under, or side-by-side. Over under double barrels have both barrels on top of one another, you press a button to unlock the barrel to load new shells while the spent shells eject themselves. side by side is the same operating mechanic, except the barrels are side by side of one another. These can be offered up to 4 gauge(which is a rarity) and as small as 410. Single shot shotguns: these are pretty much the same as double barreled, except only hold one shell instead of two. Ditto for the gauges. Bolt action shotguns: these use a bolt to fire the shell, think of it as a bolt action rifle, because that's how it works. Semi auto shotguns: these, unlike pump shotguns, load and eject the shells automatically, as soon as you pull the trigger, the gas operated mechanism pushes the bolt back, ejects the spent shell, has the elevator grab a new shell and loads and locks it into place. They are offered in the same gauges as a pump shotgun is, pretty much. Revolver shotguns: the Kel-Tec Circuit Judge is the only revolver shotgun that I know of, it operates like a big double action revolver. Now that you know a little about how they work, what would you like to buy? Honestly it depends on your price range, but a good starter shotgun is probably a pump action or a single shot one. My recommendation for a pump action shotgun would have to be the Remington 870 in 12 or 20 gauge, I would suggest if you are new to shotguns to go with the 20 gauge version, not only does it have less buck to it, it is cheaper and more easy to shoot a lot more shells in a single day with. My recommendation for a single shot shotgun would be to check out Stevens Arms, they make very good single shot and double barrel shotguns. Once you get accustomed with your shotgun you can start adding chokes(how the spread of pellets is spread out) and attachments to the rails (if you have a rail on your shotgun). Your average shotgun is going to cost at least $750, but it will last you a lifetime if treated right. Well, That's about all I have to say about buying your first shotgun, as always, feel free to leave me a question or add on to what I've said if it is useful!
