Perhaps you can find a range that rents,
and try one.
Dont think I would trade a Benelli for one.

After thinking about this,
I had an AK-47, once.
It's ok for a novelty gun.
Unless its Full Auto.
I would rather have a Lever Action in 45 colt.
My Son and I went to Turners today,
WOW! Could not get close to the counter,
tooo many people.
Wanted to see if they had the L/A in 45.
Bought a brick of 22's.
I will advise waiting till this mess calms down and then think about whether or not you really want the AK.

Now is not the time to try and acquire an ak-47. Not sure what your shotgun is worth but unless the ak is made of gold you will be losing money. Panic buying will only waste your money. Don't get me wrong though I own 3 of them and they will never leave my side

A superb AK with 10 quality magazines is worth 10 shotguns, in my opinion. I would not trade my Arsenal SLR-101S for any type of shotgun, even an automatic AA-12 shotgun.

That said, a Benelli is an excellent shotgun and if you did not feel the need to purchase an AK before, then why now?

I am not nor would I advise getting anything new right now, unless something falls in my lap. I certainly would not trade your Benelli for an AK. Personally I don't care for AKs, but whatever floats your boat. I would wait until the dust dies down. If (mighty big "if" there) a ban is enacted then I would just forget about it for awhile. I can't see any way that a ban would not cause some huge watershed changes and I don't mean the kind of changes that the anti-gunners are hoping for. Bide your time for now.

If you really want one and can work out the deal get one. Like said their not the most accurate or best built rifle but I enjoy shooting mine. Kinda like my Win. mod 94, I never use it for hunting anymore but I like shooting it.

For the most part I was looking to get one at some point anyway but my interest has peaked because I am concerned that i may not find one for quite some time. Though now i think it best to wait till all the bull clears and panic buying ends.

I think you are wise to wait or you may end up paying panic prices. I was looking at purchasing an Ak or Ar after the holidays but have since postponed such plans. Here is a local "deal" I found.

Yeah i hear you i have seen some ridiculous price gouging in the last couple weeks for example i saw what was a seven hundred dollar bushmaster Ar advertised for something like $1500 and the worst part is all the dealers are bumping their prices as well. My local gun show is less than a month away and i shudder to think what the prices may be there
