Never been much of a shotgunner but I've always had a couple in the back of the safe. Today I'm browsing Gunborker and I halfheartedly put a lowish bid on a Benelli. Much to my surprise I actually won the thing, and now I'm waiting for a 18.5" M2 Tactical with a Surefire forend and ghost ring sights. But I intentionally set limits for my hobby so something's gotta give. Current shotguns are a nice Ithaca 37 that some bubba cut to 20" and an ugly Remington Model 11 govt model with a huge Cutts compensator. Neither have chokes, nor do they have lights, and my state only allows taking deer w/shotguns. Both guns also can only handle 2.75" shells. Any thoughts on how to downsize? I figure the Remington can go since I don't need two semis and I haven't enjoyed shooting it much. But I'm also wondering if there's any practical reason to keep the Ithaca. Or, I suppose, if the Benelli was a poor choice I could sell it for a profit and go in another direction. My uses are probably 50% protection, 30% skeet/trap (casual, not tryhard,) and 20% hunting.
