Default whats your favorite shotgun action?

pretty self explanatory.
i prefer semi's because of mechanical interests.
break actions are simple.
pumps can be finicky.

i own more semi's now that i sold off 1/2 my gun collection. all my o&u's except for one are gone now.
all my weird guns are sold.
and the remainder are pumps.

so semi's it is. was a time when i owned every semi sold in america, 12 and 20ga.. cant do that again. those were the hay days.

its more like... keep the good ones and move on.

I've stuck with pumps, I've found them to be a bit lighter and less picky than some semi-autos.

i own more pump action shotguns than any other type of action, but my favorites are still always going to be the break action O/U's and SxS's. i just happen to like their simplicity and nostalgia.

I didn't vote in my original reply. Didn't see the poll. I voted this time to make up for it.

side by side is probably my favorite i have two in 12ga. both are cz one is a ringneck the other is their hammer coach. when cowboy shooting is done for the season im having my hammer coach tapped for chokes.

second would be my mossberg 590. just down right dependable

lastly ive got a mossberg 930spx which would be a great gun if the mag extension was supported and the bolt handle didnt pop out under light pressure.

the gun i want but yet to do it is a benelli m4 series

i dont vote in polls because they are so generic i prefer to give reasons when i feel they need to be expounded on.

I'd have to go with side by side. But out of the few shotguns I have, my favorite is surprisingly my old bolt action.
