On more than a few duck hunts I have seen them turn into single shots. Could have been lack of cleaning I dont know but I am soured on them. With the budget the OP mentioned I just feel there are much better options available. Again I apologize if I offended anyone.
No worries, lots of folks have different experiences. Since I have not been a bird hunter since my teens, My Shotguns are for Practice & SD/HD. We got the "SA" so it would be easy for the Wife to handle a 20 as opposed to a 12Ga.
