Hi been a staker, este lurker for a few months. This is my 1st post. I'm thinking of buying a shotgun for HD and for range use. I've looked at a few "budget" shotguns, namely Akar, Hatsan, and Armscor. Are they any good? Or should I look for something else like Maverick, Norinco 870 copy etc.. Is there a big difference in quality between the above mentioned brands? Any idea how much the Norinco or Maverick will go for? What's better, folding stock or full stock? I mean which is more comfortable to use? Obviously the folding stock is more versatile but is it easy to use and comfortable to shoot? Lastly, should I save up to get a semi? They are not a lot more expensive compared to the pump. For my purpose, will a semiauto be ok or should I stick to a pump? TIA.
