    I was in Walmart yesterday and saw that they sell a semi-auto 12 guage from Charles Dailey. Synthetic stock is $299 and wood stock is $325.

    I've been thinking about getting a semi for my wife as she likes to shoot clays but my 870 just beats her up. I would like to get a semi Remington but don't want to pay the full cost if shes ends up not liking it.

    The salesman at Wally Mart told me that the CD guns are fine except that the charging handle breaks. They are made in Turkey, so he said. Anyone have any experience with these guns or have another idea for my Frau?

    In your shoes, I'd go with a used 1100 or similar.

    A $300 shotgun that is made far away will lose resale value just leaving the shop. Warranty work and parts may just be a cruel joke, also.

    A used 1100, oft around $300, will fetch that much if Wife doesn't like it.

    HTH....

    Thanks, that's just what I was thinking. There's no hurry so I'll just root around for a good used gun.

    Have you thought about getting an 870 in 20 gauge? The lighter recoil wouldn't beat her up and the manual of arms would be the same.

    I tried one.

    I tried a Charles Daly semi-auto just last week. A buddy of mine is a Charles Daly --- what's a good word here --- slut. He loves CD. Says their customer service and maintanance is just outstanding.

    As for the shotgun. It was a semi with synth stocks and it shot very well. I had one stovepipe failure. But other than that --- seems like a very nice gun. Well balanced with pleasing lines and a nice overall feel.

    I'll go along with Dave and say stay away from the CD. In my experience the cheap autos normally aren't worth carring home. I just sold a supernice used 1100 $300.00, so they are out there. If you can spring for an extra $200.00, check out the Wal Mart Beretta 390. I just purchased one myself.
