If you must blow a grand or more on a slug gun, feel free to contact this company: http://www.tarhunt.com/Tarhunt/SlugGuns/RSG/ they also do custom builds.

You have a better ape index than I do. Ape index is the length of one's arm span in relation to their height. Mine is slightly negative.

So very true. I will never spend more on a firearm than I have spent on both of my current trucks combined, and yes, that does beat the price on both of my trucks by almost a grand. I have shot one of their RSGs, and it is very well built IMHO. Unlike it's owner (Colin justified spending $4,000 just to start bowhunting 5 years ago ) I could never bring myself to part with that kind of cash for a shotgun when I could buy a Mil-surp rifle with the same accuracy for about 6% of the MSRP of said shotgun.

Some folks just have more money than brains.

in some ways, i can see having a accurate shotgun for deer hunting in some states where centerfire rifles are restricted for deer hunting. but $3000 to $3700 for a shotgun is way out of what i would spend on a shotgun for deer hunting simply because of the limited amount of time it would be used.

seriously, does one of their shotguns offer that huge advantage over the $600 Savage bolt action shotgun?

To me, no. I can't even see an advantage over the rifled barrels you can pick up for an 870 or a 500 for about $150 used. As I said, Colin is from the more money than brains club.

i fully agree! they are some nice looking shotguns and would give you bragging rights among your friends and shooting partners, but i suspect the accuracy advantage doesn't offset the cost difference enough for me to justify spending that much on a bolt action shotgun.

Geez, that is weird. I am 6'4" tall with a big frame. I shot a trial gun for a couple weeks before the gunsmith started working on my gun. The proper LOP for me is 15".

You might want to consider patterning that 14" gun that fits you. Pattern it by shooting a sheet. Draw an X on the sheet. Then aim at the center of the X and shoot the sheet until you shoot a hole in it. The hole is the point of impact for that given gun.

Use a sheet to find the point of impact, paper will give you false results.

just curious as how paper will give a false result. people have used paper and cardboard for years to pattern shotguns.

please clarify that for us.
