Let your experience grow and maybe you will move to an auto, and someday a dbl. (SXS or OU) I started with one shotgun...now I have three...I started with one revolver....now I have 3...I started with one auto...now I have 6..... You get the picture, right?
im not saying i wont buy more hunting shotguns down the road, but whats wrong with buying a REALLY nice shotgun as your first hunting shotgun?
i DO plan on having it for yearsssssss...
besides, i do have a shotgun already, just not a hunting shotgun. and i have multiple rifles and multiple handguns...why not buy a really nice hunting shotgun as my first hunting shotgun?
i dont see anything wrong with it...
