Shotgun Styles

How many different styles of shotguns do you own?
What are they,and why did you choose it?
1)CZ O/U .12 ga 28'' pipes-Needed an ''uppity'' gun for trap and chucker-Love it!
2)CZ 712 .12 ga 27'' bbl- wanted a 3 1/2'' autoloader for big fowl and turkey.
3)Rem 870 .12 ga 25'' bbl-swings easy out of a blind, and ALWAYS RELIABLE.
4)H&R .12 ga single shot- needed one to keep in the pickup calving out cows.
5)Stevens .12 ga side-x-side(just traded to for Win.94 30-30) Need another Side-x-Side cause thats how God intended Shotguns, but will prob opt for a brand with more ''quality'', but loved how it shot and having 2 triggers!

    Remington M870 Marine Magnum 12 gauge, 18" barrel, pump action, 6 rounds. Home protection and fun to shoot.

    I have owned almost every type and brand and I have settled for two basic types.

    Over and under and semi auto's for these reasons.

    The over&under has a great feel and sighting plain, It is the safest because it can be carried
    open to show it is safe and I can change shell sizes quickly and quietly for different types of
    game in the field. I prefer 2&3/4 or 3" shells for the over & under.

    Next is the semi auto's for the big loads of steel or lead . they have manageable recoil levels
    when shooting 2&1/4 oz turkey loads or the biggest steel shot loads for geese. and quick
    follow up shots if needed.

    I love the look and feel of the side by sides but the aim point doesn't work for me.

    The pumps are probably the most dependable repeater shotguns but I never could get use to
    working the slide fast enough and the recoil is strong with the heaviest 3&1/2" loads and is
    slow to regain a new sight picture (Follow up shot).

    There is nothing wrong with the other types of shot guns this is just MY preference just like
    the brands.
