    Thumbs up

    Go to a gun show. They typically have the best prices on new guns. Do some research on pricing before you go. Then skim all the booths looking at the prices. Find the lowest price, haggle, pass the background check and go home with your new gun*

    Some stores have annual sales or just periodical sales but you still need to know what your gun retails for else where. Sometimes they will mark up certain firearms prior to a sale. I usually check a bunch of online gun stores and get a average price.
    Also i have never paid a stores asking price on a gun sale or not. Most stores will haggle with you. Just make sure you do your homework and if the employees dont work on commission talk to a manager.

    What shotgun are you looking to buy?

    What's a good price for a 12 gage, semi (I don't like the pump).

    What brand do you all recommend?

    What model?

    What features?

    Etc.

    Best time to buy a gun is "anytime".

    As for your personal choice, your going to have to let people know what your intended use is. Guns are like golf clubs, they each fill a specific need.
    When the opportunity has arrived,

    The time for preparation has past.

    Have you considered buying used? It's a quick way to save 30+%, and once you save that money, the gun doesn't decrease anymore in value.

    Around here, there are usually spring sales, but no killer deals (not worth waiting).

    Why don't you like pump? They will fire no matter what you throw at them, probably the best for home defense.

    As to good price, what's your budget??? Benelli/Franchi, Remington, Mossberg, there are really LOTS of shotguns, from $200 to $20,000.

    What is your intended use and your price range?

    Regarding shotguns - I recommend a Saiga-12. Its a 12 Gauge semi auto that uses box mags. You can buy 10 round mags or 20 round drums for them (depending on what state you live in). Also it was built as a combat shotgun (its like an oversized AK), its pretty damn solid. Attached is a pic of mine, thinking about adding one of those SureFire lights built into the front vertical grip.

    well, from the threads i've seen in here, the remington 870 and the mossberg 500 seem pretty popular. i just want something for bears and for home intruders.

    Check after deer season.... usually they have pretty good sales on hunting equipment... alot of places will mark alot of things off.... with guns it's hit or miss, usually a gun shop only carries a few of each variety... so it's not like they get stuck with inventory they have to get rid of, also, they're not like cars.

    I just got back from AK (going to make a post as soon as i get the pics from the gf) it was great up there. Do you do any fishing?

    and for the shotgun you cant beat a 870 i have one and love it was a great duck gun till i got my benelli. If you just want it for bears and home defense id go with a shorter barrel, but if you ever plan on duck or goose hunting stick with at the least a 26'' preferably a 28''.

    I think if you look around, you will save a lot of money by buying them online, I have got some really great deals online at places like Auction Arms, I bought about a dozen different guns, handguns and rifles though out the years online and have never found a store that I was able to get them at as good a price as I did online, including the shipping to a FFL dealer I still came out a lot of money ahead..

    Before the fighting starts
    Lose = Be careful not to lose that.
    Loose = The bolts are loose.
    There = She is there now.
    Their = They have their things.
    They're = They're going to the mall.
    To = They came to the house.
    Too = That's too bad.
    Two = 2.
    Your = Your dinner is ready.
    You're = If you're 150lbs you better have a 6 pack.

    Reputable stuff, bought new. That way, if it's a POS, at least it's probably covered by warranty.

    Personally speaking, I've never bought a used gun that worked 100%. Even after giving them pretty rigorous visual inspection (internal of course), you can never be sure.

    I had a .22 revolver that crapped out (firing pin), a FAL that wouldn't cycle properly (bolt just wouldn't fly home, even after replacing recoil spring...only happened when the weapon heated up. Worked fine the day I bought it), a Firestar (known as a very reliable handgun) that worked fine the day I bought it, MALF'ed every range trip since, a used Ruger P85 that wouldn't hit the broad side of a barn even though the bore was immaculate, etc. etc.

    Every new gun I've bought has been 100%, aside from an AR15 which had an improperly staked gas key, but then at least the company made good on the deal. Called them, shipped the carrier + bolt, received a new one in less than a week.

    Same goes for ammo. Today I had a case failure using remanufactured 5.56 from a reputable company. Yet I've never had a problem with 50 year old American milsurp ammo (twin cities), or even 20+ year old Guatemalan brass. 20+ year old new manufacture SA .308 works fine.

    I've basically refused to buy used **** because the truth is, somebody's selling it for a reason. Unless it's a KNOWN GOOD SHOOTER, f-ck it. It's not worth it.

    You have to get it shipped to an FFL (federal firearms licensed dealer) in your area.
