keep0njeepin0n Posted November 27, 2009 Share Posted November 27, 2009 Hey, as stated I am new to owning a shotgun. Have been in the market for one for quite some time, but been too picky about what I wanted. I came across a used M1 Super 90 with 24" barrel for $300 and it's in perfect condition. Even though it wasn't EXACTLY what I wanted, it did meet the basic criteria, i.e. 12 gauge, and semi auto. Being in excellent condition and hardly ever used at all, I figured I was stupid not to buy it. Since I am new to shotguns (not new to other guns/firearms) I was hoping this would be the best place to get some suggestions. This shotgun will NOT be used for hunting AT ALL!!! Not that I am against hunting, just not my thing is all. That being said, this will be more of a home defense/target shotgun, and maybe once in a while some skeet. Is the 24" barrel too much? Should I be looking for an 18" barrel? It seems like it's pretty long, but then again, I am NEW to owning shotguns. Would I be ruining the gun by putting a pistol grip stock on it and maybe an 18" barrel? What are some things I should be aware of with this gun. Also, can anyone tell me how to find out how old this thing is?!?!?! Thanks a lot in advance! --Jon Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
