    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Has anyone shot an auto/semi shotgun before?

    Think Benelli M1. Or even the SPAS-12. What's it like?

    they are great. A lot less kick and can shoot several times quickly.

    This has me thinking too. If you shoot someone 2-3 times who's wearing full body armor with a 12 gauge, what happens to him? I'm assuming if you shoot him square in the chest the pellets won't go through given their low velocity, but with that amount of force, will it break his ribs? will it possibly still incapacitate the person?

    *RBSD on* Cuz you know, when those steel toed body armor wearin federal nazis come storming through my door i wanna make sure they still go down with my auto-shotgun *RBSD off*

    It would still hurt like ****. But that's why we have faces. SPAS to the face will annihilate.

    Gas operated semi-autos such as the Remington 11-87 have significantly less felt recoil than a pump with the same weight and ammuntion. However, a recoil operated semi (i.e. Benelli M1) does not reduce the felt recoil nearly as much as a gas operated shotgun.

    Either style of semi still kicks but there are other things you can do to reduce the recoil such as shooting bird/skeet/trap loads or going to reduced recoil buck and slugs. Muzzle flip can be tamed with a compensator or porting but that will only pay off once you learn how to shoot the weapon correctly.

    As for rate of fire, a Benelli can be fired pretty quick. With practice a pump can be run nearly as quickly. I find myself more limited by transition time from target-to-target than by cycle time with semi-autos.

    Another little thought of benefit from semi-autos, they are easier to fire from a prone position.
