Okay - 1) I'm not crazy 2) I love big and/or unique guns 3) For many years, I really wanted a DE .50, but it seems like everyone has one. Now I'm thinking - hmmm... 4) A M82 is outta my price range 5) 10 ga? Seems like they can be picked up pretty cheap and ammo is available. Would I be nuts for dedicating one to HD duty? I can't shoot clays with one at any of the clubs around here, and I currently don't have a HD shotgun (my G29 currently serves the purpose as HD). I was thinking maybe a http://www.browning.com/products/catalog/firearms/detail.asp?value=011B&cat_id=012&type_id=212 and having the barrel cut to an inch over the legal limit? 10 GA slug - http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/65639-5.html 12 GA slug - http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/65641-5.html 10 GA 00 - http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/65871-5.html I'm trying to justify adding another toy to the collection. And I realize it will probably have $0 value to anyone after I cut it down. I don't hunt. Am I just being completely silly for wanting a 10 GA for this job when everyone else uses a 12 GA? EDIT: wanted to add, I have no recoil problem with break-action 12 GA, slugs, prone or otherwise. And I don't doubt that a 12/20GA would work fine for this task either, I'm simply asking for peoples opinions.
