re: What Would the OB Choose? - tiger693
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 ...
