I flinched at the last minute and voted for Romney.

Does my vote for Ron Paul instead of Bush Sr back in the 80's balance that out?

True, and I have somehow collected......7?  (How the F did I end up 7 shotguns?) I just find myself underwhelmed by the expensive  "combat" shotguns.  My Black Aces bullpup is the most fun to run on a range, but I'm not sure I'd trust it for combat.

What's a SPAS-12 go for these days?  Those were always cool.

Your still paying over a grand for a low capacity long gun with slow follow up shots.

Yeah, but have you seen what Garand Thumb does to ballistic gel skulls with one?  :laugh:

On the serious side, I will grant you that a carbine in trained hands is superior most of the time for defense, but a combat shotgun is still effective, and I've just always wanted a good semi-auto one.

One place where a shotgun seems to be devastating compared to even 30.06 AP is body armor. When I watch the test videos, even if it doesn't penetrate, I'm pretty sure a rifled slug will stop, if not kill a guy in level IV. Some of that armor gets bent to a 45 deg angle from a single shot. That's not gonna be pleasant for the old chest cavity.

Knowing that, I can hardly blame folks for opting out. Over the years APS has had plenty of folks that voted for obscure third party people or refused to vote because all the candidates were horrible.

You had a question so I devoted a few hours of research to the problem. You are welcome.

I've fired an M4 a couple times.  I own an HK marked Benelli M3 that I got in the late 90's.  Both are good shotguns, and the gas system on the M4 is a nice reliability upgrade, but honestly,  I don't think  they are worth what Benelli asks for them.  JMO.

The M4, if it sold for what an M2 does, might be reasonable.

Not this again.  :facepalm:
Telling people there's no reason to vote is not a great idea.

Yeah, I don't see how surrendering and letting the Dems win without having to resort to fraud is somehow going to save the process.
