Re: Any 10ga shooters out there?
You didn't say what you planned on using it for. I have a double 10 that weighs in at a shade under 12#. I never notice the recoil shooting at something, but at the range, OOOF! That thing will knock you flat if you aren't leaning into it. I would say to definitely go with the auto.
I have taken some insane shots with it. Squirrels out to 60yds, a common scotter on the Chesapeake at around 50yds. Honestly though with the price of ammo and availability, I picked up a Browning Cynergy Waterfowl that handles 3.5", so the 10 doesn't get used anymore. Just saw a box of Winchester Dryloc steel this afternoon. $35/box.
Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.
Good... Bad... I'm the guy with the gun.
