I have a lot of opportunities on hogs up close on the move. A shotgun would be ideal. What's out there in 3-1/2", 5 round semi-auto 12ga? As for ammo, who has had success at 50 yards, and with what load?

You don't need 3.5" ammo. Save your wallet and shoulder the grief and get 2.75" they work just fine from 80yds and closer.

Got a hold of one of those yesterday. I'm with you on this, but wouldn't mind finding something less expensive.

Well, if you want something to match your tactical belt, your tactical shirt, and your tactical pants, you might take a look at this one:

Wondering if anyone has used a KelTec. It's a pump but it wins on mag capacity every day if you come across a sounder close in.

I've shot hundreds from the air with a 12 gauge. And unless your just looking to pick one or two off (use a rifle) forget the 3 1/2". 3" 000 or 00 does just about as well and doesn't cost near as much, wallet or shoulder. It still boils down to shot placement if your looking to knock them down, and it's a lot easier to put 3-4 well placed 3" shots on a sounder than it is a 3 1/2". Just my personal experience.

I will chime in as a I have some testing behind my belt. There is a noticeable difference is shot difference. Find some Federal Tactical with flight control wad. Night and day difference between it and normal buckshot.

You donít need a fancy shotgun

I'll revise my search criteria to 3". Good advice.
