Semi-auto shotguns. Who has 'em?

I've decided that I needed a semi-auto shotgun in my life. Just curious as to what other people have and how they like them, what the purpose is and if the gun won't run a certain ammo type.

For a while I was torn between the FN SLP and the Beretta 1301 Tactical. I would've bought the Beretta except it only holds four rounds while the FN holds seven. The Beretta has bigger oversized controls which I like because I like to wear gloves when shooting. I know that an extended mag tube could be added to the Beretta for two extra rounds, but that's more expensive than a bigger bolt knob for the FN.
So I ordered the FN. Pics when in.

Post pics of yours too!

I have a Saiga 12. Beast of a detachable mag semiauto. They are definitely a project gun and can get expensive, but lots of fun.

I bought a 1100 Remington in 1976 at Kmart for $250.00 and I really like it a lot. One time 5 quail got up and I started shooting I got 4 of them. My brother-in-laws helped me find them. All I did was pick one at a time. It hold 5 but the 5th quail he was pack'n the mail didn't get a shot at him. My brother-in -laws called me dead eye and said they were going to leave me at home so they could have a chance.I know what I wrote is hard to believe but it's true.

I've got a Remington 11-87 with both the standard RemChoke barrel and a "SP" barrel I ordered from Remington, that I've never seen since (even through Remington..it's a short, smooth bore barrel with RemChoke and a cantilever scope mount.

I've got it topped with a 3-9x Simmons scope for use as a deer slug gun.

Here's an OK photo of it with my grandfather's Kinfolks knife...the subject was the knife...

Not yet but I'm drooling over a Franchi Affinity 20 gauge with the wood stock. Fits me like a glove and very light. Anybody have any experience with one of those please let me know how it works for you.

Mossberg 930 combo (18.5" and 28" barrels). Home defense only (OO Buck), with the the 18.5". Never fired through the 28" barrel.

Have had some problems with it when manually cycling, but once it gets going, it is fine. 4+1 stock mag, not really interested in extending it.

FRANCHI AFFINITY in 20-ga is a terrific gun and is perfect for Upland bird hunting up close like bobwhites or pheasants and other animals such as rabbits . Actually over all a great hunting gun or trap/skeet gun . I have the 12-ga cause I have always been partial to 12-ga but I like the 12 better for wide open hunting like doves or possible waterfowl when chance arises .
