    It's a AOW. But......you cannot carry this for CC right?? Only 3 shot also, so would rather have 8X.45 than 3X12ga anyway. + innocent bystanders >>ouch !! -------Also it is a 5buck transfer and a 6month(or so) wait. -------

    Depends on the state. Here rifles and shotguns are specifically listed as AOK for concealed carry without a permit.

    I don't need one for my SBR HK-51 clone ;0
    Driver carries less than $45 worth of remorse.

    Very managable with 12 ga. Reducded recoil Buck and slug IMHO.

    Not like there's anything wrong with a wall of "00" buck when you need it...why have a pump action weapon as a car gun when you'll need two hands to cycle the action. Not to mention that you'll have an accuracy of oh 2' IMHO you'd be better off with something elese, with the 3 rd capacity I'd just get a double barrel 12

    I partially agree. I DONT use mine for the vehicle BUT do HD. Then again 1 rd. of 00Buck from Drivers seat to passenger window distance should be plenty? ive shot and own both and find the recoil on the SS MUCHHH more plseant then the SXS (BearClaw) Just my opinion. Again otherwise agreed :-).

    I can see the home defense aspect, short barrel for cornering and all, but still...I can think of better options that a $700 pump gun. There's a difference between what looks cool/works vs. WHAT WORKS. I'm not trying to start an argument, but why spend that kind of money on a three shot pump action 12g or 20g pistol, when you can spend $350 for a decent Remington that can have more use than collecting dust behind a drivers seat.

    First off spent 5 not 7 :-) BUT your point is well taken and frankly ONE dosent do the Job of the other, nothing points quicker and hits harder at a point blank personal distance than this gun PERIOD....does that make it the perfect tool for every job? By no means sir, you are once again correct, DOES make it a Darn useful tool for MANY jobs though...just one more option NOT an overall solution, and always a pleasure to share opinions so never have concern please...

    Short Shots

    So if I were inclined to ger a short barreled shotgun what do I have to go throught? While I wouldn't want the 3 shotter I wouldn't mind having a 15" remington auto with a folder on it. And out of curiosity why is it you can buy a bushmaster pistol with no hassle but a cut down 12 guage is a federal matter?
