The evolution of my hobby at the time was the Daewoo USAS-12, which looked like an AR-15 on steroids, came with 20 shot drum and 2 x box mags( cant remember if 8 or 10 shot). That thing with 12 pellet 00 buck( the heavy load for 2 3/4") fired as fast as you could pull the trigger, recoil was mild, it just rocked back and forth as you squeezed 2-3 shots a second to target.There was a full auto version as well, which Daewoo sold direct to LEO around the world. I put thousands through mine, mostly blasting old junk, doors and bottles, and only ever had one jam- found out it didnt like winchester 1oz rifled slugs in the 20 shot drum. These days I am happy with mid powered loads in a 44mag lever. Less recoil, less noise, close enough to a one shot stop for me. Flashlight under the barrel, it can shoot 4 legged pests at night to twice the range of 12ga.
