I'm to a point where I think I'm just chasing my tail. For some reason I keep considering that there must be a way to get a shotgun that will have a 18 to 18.5 barrel for home SD and other barrel options for say deer and turkey hunting, different chokes, and also good for shooting sports like skeet, trap, clay, etc.
The more time I waste looking at all the options, it just appears that for the $, you don't save much, and you just end up with a lot of accessories.
I doubt I'll ever deer hunt with anything other than a 30.06 rifle, .308 rifle, or a 44 mag (revolver or level action). I guess I keep thinking I may end up hunting, at some time, in a shotgun only area.
Still, it comes down to Home SD, turkey, and sports. They are just specialised enough, that I'm going to want to customise the home SD shotgun enough to mount a light, I already own a good turkey shotgun (model 12 winchester, and as long as I can used lead, I'm fine), and really I might prefer something other than a 12 guage for the sports.
Am I missing something or am I starting to think in the right direction. Get the right tool for the job, forget the multi tool.
