The bolt-action shotgun has, more or less, faded from the shotgunning world. Personally, I've only had limited exposure to them (a beat-up .410-bore used in my youth), but occasionally look for a Marlin Super Goose.

Anywho, do you like bolt-action shotguns? Ye, nay, or I don't know. ;)

The first shotgun I hunted with was a Mossberg 20 gauge bolt action. The felt recoil was terrible and I never could hit much with it. Then I bought a new Wingmaster and my hunting life got better. Looking back, that damn bolt gun nearly soured me on shotguns all together.

For shot or slugs? I think bolt action slug guns are great, but I'd never use a bolt action for birds.

I was a young boy and unfortunately I was expected to try to harvest flying birds with it. I am so glad the experience did not ruin shotgunning for me. I am sure they are great for slugs, as they are certainly built to rifle dimensions.

Its what I learned on, but you can forget about any kind of repeat shot, especially if you're left handed.

As others have said, a bolt action shotgun is OK when used with slugs as you would a bolt action rifle, but I wouldn't want one for hunting moving targets such as birds or rabbits.

Price-wise, used bolt actions offer a good deal. Basically, a bolt action shotgun can be viewed as a single shot with a handy place to carry extra rounds. :) But it is nowhere near as good or useable as a pump action for most shotgun uses, IMO.

No, I do not like bolt action shotguns, but that doesn`t mean that others do like and use them. This is why there are dfferent styles of shotguns. Not everyone likes the same thing.

I suppose you could shoot trap with one. I see no reason to ever own one.

What's to like about them? My first gun was a Stevens bolt .410. What a miserable turd.

Bolt action goose guns with a barrel 36" and over is kinda funny looking and awkward to use. I should know. ;)

Had one before; not really a bad gun, but not much cup of tea either.

I once thought of getting one to make into a slug shooter but glad I did not because there are better options now for slug guns. I guess one would also be o.k. for squirrel hunting since they would be used similar to a rifle as far as aiming.

A bolt action shotgun is the best shotgun made--except for all the rest.

I don't, but if I was shooting slugs for maximum range and trajectory then I would get one.
They have their place.
