I bought my 500 for zombies!!!! Lol jk jk, got it for HD. And I love that shotty and also gonna get a Remmy 870 just cause I found one with a Super Magnum receiver for $350 ^^ But a side by side, I do want one just cause of that classy feeling ya folks are on about. But I know nothing of side by sides and 2 of my buddies had their own and swore by them. One of them was a skeet shooter and the other had it for fun and they're classic. Now this thread has got me thinking of my 3rd shotgun after getting that Remmy. Who should I buy manufacturer wise for quality? I like to save up and buy when I have enough for what I'm aiming for, I try not to shop on a budget. Any suggestions? I also like them American made please, if possible not made out of country.

Default Classic SXS

Why choose, I have and use both.

There is just something about a good SXS that makes it a classic. The wide sighting plane is unique and for hunting, the double triggers mean you have instant choke or load selection. Most are IC/M or traditionally M/F.

Although when it rains, I hunt w an Syn 870.

They are for slug hunting and typically rifled. Some are used for goose hunting and are often found in 10ga or bigger bore. You come across them in the upper midwest and states where centerfire rifle is illegal for hunting.

depends on the purpose.
hunting - side by side, all nostagic and such.
home defence - pump for the extra chances.

i don't care for over unders.

I prefer pumps myself. I've just always loved the look and the feel of a good pump shotgun. But I do like side by sides for the classic western look and over and unders for their fancy tone. I have a bolt action 16 guage. It's a Mossberg model 190 K-A. Great shotgun, was my dads first shotgun when he was very young. My great uncle had bought it when
my dad was a couple years old. Then he gave it to my dad when he was around 12. This gun has been all over the mountain behind my mom and dads place. It has a 2 round mag and adjustable choke.

Not true. Used to be many many made smoothbore. I inherited a savage. 410 bolt action. It was use by my grandpa in the 50's to put squirrel and rabbit in the stew pot, and possibly deer with slugs, but i dont know bevause he died before i could ask. I know 410 slugs are plenty powerful at short range (comparable to 44 mag) and still legal in some places.

I like pump shotguns with an 870 style action for defense/ zombie problems, but I want to get a side by side for hunting birds just because you have a quicker follow up shot then say a pump with less movement. We'll that and I want to sit on my front porch smoking my pipe with it across my lap.
