Sks or shotgun?
Would you rather buy an sks if so what kind? Or a mossberg 500?

Are ya wanting something for home defense.

That cannot be answered if you don't provide your intent for the gun, if you want to duck hunt then don't buy an sks, if you want to deer hunt and shoot 200 yards don't buy a shotgun (though the sks wouldn't be my first choice either), home defense I'd go with a shotgun

What they said. HD -- shotgun. Being a proper citizen of the community, state and nation? SKS

They are so different and fulfill two very different needs. Are you asking, "Which should I buy first?"

Then the answer would always be shotgun. At least in my world, with my 2 cents.

Shotgun. I have two sks's. A shotgun is more practical and can be used more then aan sks.

My purpose for asking is because i plan to collect firearms throughout my life

Crazycastor 05-13-2013 01:30 AM

If your going start collecting, buy quality guns. You'll appreciate your collection and your collection will be worth more if you had to sell. But if you building up a personal arsinal, I would buy the SKS first. Only reason is because they are getting more expensive.

Why bot both? Saiga 12 gauge haha looks like an ska but it's a 12 gauge

hq357 05-13-2013 07:35 PM

The reason i ask is because me and my stepdad keep our guns in the same safe so we share guns , we have a shotgun already but no sks i do not yet own a shotgun of my own but i want one because of the versatility and different uses but i also want an sks because the sks is increasing in price and they are becoming harder to find and its the only semi auto military rifle thats under 800$ that i know of so wich should i buy first? Sks or shotgun?
