I read there are still a few hic ups with that gun. But tell him the msrp, and see if they will drop the price. I've seen them as low as six online. To me there is to many parts to fail, and too many ways the gun could jam. I'll stick with my trusty 870 pump. If I'm ever in a situation I need 15 shells either A. I have bigger things to worry about, or B I need to become a better shot.
