A shotgun is a big investment, one must be sure to spend money wisely, the possibilities are virtually endless when choosing a weapon and can be a bit disconcerting for a new fighter or a novice shooter. It is important to have an idea of what you want to buy before seeing your gunsmith. To help you make a choice, I choose highly reliable guns with excellent value for money, could be used for shooting and hunting bidders and their careful owners use flawless for years.
But before I reveal the podium, some tips seem necessary:
One constant; You should buy the best you can afford.
For most hunters, gun-all-trades is probably the best choice, especially at the beginning, it is not yet sure what type of hunting or shooting discipline that will practice, and do not forget it is likely that you sell your first gun is because you want to, after draw some time buy a specialized weapon, simply change rifle, or you decide to permanently stop the shooting or hunting (j hope not!). For these reasons I logically advises to buy a good brand of gun that will sell easily.
Buy before the start of hunting season, it gives you time to change and practice or maybe even change it best to know before opening your gun for you.
Check preferably a local gunsmith, combined with a shooting range is even better, drawing few trays, you will immediately see if the gun fits you and it’s ideal for conformation.
If a gun is not for you do not buy it, even if it seems a bargain !!
Remember, it is very important the gold buying, ask as many questions as you can to your gunsmith, examine and manipulate as much as you can the gun.
Secure yourselt above all the qualities ot the weapon and not only to its outside, ot course, we all hope to impress our friends hunters by the beauty of our brand new rifle, but ultimately you will be judged on the quality of your shot, not the shine of your weapon.
In the end, “You do not choose a gun on mere rational criteria. Scales, ultimately, a movement of the heart or intervene the eye, the hand and all the secret alchemy of desire.”
