    I saw Cabela's had a Savage 320 security pump on sale for $ 199.99 in their flier today so I ran down and picked one up. All the reviews I've read have been favorable. I don't normally buy bargain guns, but don't have any security shotguns is the safe so I thought I'd pick one up and try it out.

    I was a little perturbed at Cabela's though. They have the model with the ghost ring sight in their add, and the actual gun on sale had no rear sight, and a front bead. (see pics).

    Yes, I did have to buy it, but this kind of BS is getting to be the norm for Cabela's. This happened to me a year ago with a pistol they had listed. The price in store was $ 50.00 more than the flyer. The sales jockey directed me to a note in small print on the back of the flier noting not responsible for misprints, blah-blah-blah, but this misleading advertising seems to be their MO now, and it pisses me off.

    They used to be so great to deal with, but now, I don't know....

    That really sucks wind of them! Reality is the bead is better anyway, but I know that's little consolation (the GRS's do LOOK really cool). Let us know how it works. I am torn about the forearm -- it gives a better length of pull, but, also makes for clothing getting caught in between it and the receiver to jam it. I also don't love the Remington lifter design.

    Presume it holds five rounds in the tube? Confirm!?

    I didn't load the tube yet but will confirm it's five tomorrow. I suppose the lack of the ghost sight and front blade is o.k. Being the gun cost less than $200, it would probably break anyway. Besides, it's a scatter gun- point and shoot.

    I haven't had a chance to get it to the range yet. Picked up a couple boxes on field loads today and some buckshot. I plan on hitting the range after work one night next week and will post after.

    Honestly, if u r a regular shotgun shooter, I think u saved some money. U would have gone out and bought a non-GRS barrel soon after using the one it came with...

    I had it out to the range yesterday and put a box of field loads thru it, along with a box of 00 buck. It ran fine with no issues, other than when I shoot it freehand at the waist, I tend to grip the forearm to the rear, and have a tendency to let it slip back after the shot, causing the shell not to eject. That's the best way I can explain it. Other than that, it really shot fine. Relatively smooth action and accurate with 00 buck. It's not my Beretta, but hey, what do you expect for $ 170.00? Another plus- I go a Cabelas $ 20 off order over $150 coupon Monday and stopped in and have them credit my account by $20.

    I ordered a Tasco receiver mount for it and plan on installing a inexpensive red dot on it.

    Will post pics then.

    Oh yeah, 5 inb the tube Hocka....
