MAYBE A DUMB QUESTION! :embarassed: Is there any time difference between follow up shots for a semi auto VS pump shot gun? I am sure if you just blast away at the air a semi auto would be faster - but if you pump the gun between the first shot and taking aim for the second shot - no real time lost - or not much difference? When I was in high school I could shoot my pump faster than my dad could fire his semi auto - Duck hunting over decoys - he always said I shot too fast - but it was almost always 3 shots 3 dead ducks - and once in a while I would load an additional round and get off one more shoot. Anyone ever done any training or exercises comparing a semi auto and a pump? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
