What Would the OB Choose?
There have been several threads recently asking for opinions on preferred Shotgun, rifle caliber, home defense pistol, first time buyer's pistol, etc. but I had an interesting dilemma recently that I think may be a good discussion for the OB.

I attended the Ducks Unlimited Fundraiser last Friday at Cabelas in Gonzales. For those of you who don't know it was set up as a 50 gun giveaway, but there were tons of other raffles. One of which was a $20 ticket for a limited entry raffle--once they hit 60 entries they drew a winner, then started over. If you won, you were able to select ANY GUN or PACKAGE from either of the two banners shown below. I thought this was the best odds in the house, so I entered and won!

I have been in the market for a new shotgun and have been following the posts here about Beretta, Benelli, etc. that have had some great information. In the end, I settled on the Benelli Super Black Eagle II Classic! While I am confident in my choice bc I know it is an excellent gun and it fills my exact need, there was always the potential of buyer's remorse when my buddies found out what I picked...

The question to the OB is: Which would you pick, and why?

I personally would have picked the Beretta A350 or the Browning Maxus

Congrats! That's awesome. The SBEII is a great choice and won't disappoint. Its the best shotgun on the banner IMO.

re: What Would the OB Choose?
In your situation, I would agree that you made the right play and got a shotgun to fill your needs. I own a SBE II Classic and would say that you did good by getting a gun on the upper end value-wise from your choices.

Since I already have a gun for everything I "need" one for, I would have gone for the Big Boy in .357 mag because I've always wanted one.

Damn what a mind frick.

SBE2. Final answer.

why?


Because I know what it can do, and real dollar value wise I'm not seeing anything else that would be much more.

I joked to my buddy when I bought the ticket that if I do win I'm liable to have a heart-attack trying to decide!

Me and two buddies went also. We bought a 7 pack of tickets.

I heard my name called as one of the winners in the 50 gun drawing.

I didn't even find out what I had won until after I filled out the background check. It turned out to be a Wise Arms AR-15.

Congrats!


It was a fun event, but there was so much going on that it definitely took a while to understand all of the side raffles, the women walking around with the colored balloons, etc.

Thank you

I was definitely NOT expecting that large of a crowd.

Now that I know, I would definitely do it again.

I heard some guy bought $1000 worth of tickets... And won the $1000 raffle...and at least 4 guns!

After the third gun they made an announcement to that effect. Then later he also won the $1,000 gift card. I can't imagine

re: What Would the OB Choose?
I’m going either:

Ruger Super Rehawk

I really want this gun anyway. Would like to get a deer with a revolver.

Or

Sitka duck clothes

I’m just trying to get into duck hunting and this would really help because I wouldn’t have to buy clothes and they are nicer than I would buy anyway.

I have shotguns, rifles,... I would rather use the opportunity to get some stuff I need want rather than just want.
