I'm looking at this ' new ' tac 12 gauge from benelli . it's a pump -
newest variant. I do like the semi auto . but there are compelling reasons
for the pump action 12 gauge shotgun.
1 ) they feed every time.
(I have never had a semi auto jam.) did in a semi auto pistol than switched
to full metal jackets. (no problemo) I knew that already !
2) in the old days : and riot control situations- there is a almost palpable visceral
effect to hearing and seeing an 12 gauge shotgun chamber a round.
it has a ' hell of a deterrent effect ' serves as in the business what they
call- " fair warning "
3) lets concealed attackers know you came to the fight prepared. they
4) zillions less in cost. still the pump looks good and can be equipped w/
an shotgun shell extender.
5) more of an challenge when bird hunting or skeet shooting. clay pigeons etc...
