David Clark said:The poor guy wants an Auto. and you keep telling him to buy a 870.
He said "I think Maybe a semi-Auto". He also said that an 1100 was out of his price range. To me that means he didn't rule out other actions and did rule out a lot of semi-autos in that price range. Therefore, I think an 870 is a reasonable suggestion to consider along with the stoeger. Off hand I can't think of any other semi's that are less expensive than the 1100 that I would recommend.
Big mistake... cheap usually correlates strongly with unreliable. Many are happy with their Stoegers, but more have reported problems.Jacobd9316 said:I am leaning toward the M2000
