I just have a mossberg 500 with a folding stock and a flashlight, but I'm kinda liking those saigas. Having a removable box magazine instead of a tube is kind of nice. Plus the kalishnakov(however it's spelled) is the most reliable setup ever. And it's a semi auto. How many shells does one of those mags hold? like 8?




I'm limited to 10 round magazines here in Kali for the Saiga (a 5 round magazine is in the picture), but I have seen 20 round drums on Shooting USA.

Damn Communist California. You can walk into a store and buy marijuana, but you can't have over 10 rounds in a magazine.

The thing to keep in mind with an SD/HD situation is with a conventional tube magazine you can do continuous tactical reloads. That is fire 2-3 (of 7+) and top off, fire 2-3 and top off, fire 2-3 and top off. No waiting to run dry and an "oh crap" moment while you fish for a fresh mag for your empty weapon. That's one of the big advantages of a shotgun.



Its also a lot faster and easier to throw a bandoleer of 55 shells over your shoulder when you're in your jammies (or less) than it is to find a place to stuff 5 huge magazines.

And I kinda do have a bandolier under my bed with my shotgun, but it's only 50 rounds. 25 slugs, 25 buckshot.

That's probably the best argument i've ever heard for a HD shotgun.People should go to that first rather than...



"Just the sound of racking it will do the job!"



"You dont even need to aim!"



etc,etc...
