Hey all. So a while back I went trap shooting at a range I go to in PA. I was suprisingly good at it (considering I'd never done it before). Now I managed to find a trap & skeet range relatively close by so I tried it out and now I've really got the bug. (the fact that this range is only about 20 mins away as opposed to an hour 15 doesn't help either =P ) Anyway, I'm looking at shotguns again which I do every so often yearning for the day I'll actually have a license and the money for my first one. I already know what I want as my first (Remington 870 synthetic with 7 round mag), but while looking through the site my curiosity peaks on something. Several of Remington's shotguns have "magnum" or "super magnum" in the name. I have a good enough understanding of what magnum means in terms of rifles and handguns, but what the hell is a magnum shotgun? I'm trying to pick up what I can where I can, which includes coming on here every so often to find answers. Anyone who can clue me in to what a magnum shotgun is will be much appreciated.
