That said, if you don't have an AEG get one of those first. Shotguns are fun, but you're out gunned no matter what and the advantages of a shotgun don't really translate to airsoft.
Cyma's got some new shotguns I've been seeing online for sub $200 that look a bit better then the ones most people have.
Hahaha, for sure...once i realized how much more practical the AEG rifles are due to the whole no gas thing, being lightwieght, 450rnd mags...its just a no brainer. I sport a G&G cm16 as a primary sprayer (everything else i own, and will buy in the future, is/will be for looks or just for fun...for instance i have a kwc co2 uzi w/ 2 spare mags just to scare people if i need to (they chew through co2, but the realism is so fun), and then i like to carry dual co2 deseart eagles (makes me feel better about the size of my *****) holstered in each armpit w/ 4 spare greenGas mags on my belt...next guns will be a revolver and/or shotgun....
When i played 10 years ago i had 2 cheap (but descent) spring shotties that were really fun [back then all i had were spring pistols, one nice GBB and a KJW MK gas sniper that was fun for a week until this little paper clip-like peice that was essential to the semi-auto system broke]...these shotties one barrell but you could pump like 4 rounds into a shot but they all came out of the same spot so you had better range and accuracy with just one, maybe 2. it had a long mag that slid in under the barrel...i dont want that type...the whole attraction to the shotty for me is the idea of loading a single shell w/ 30rnds into the gun itself, and then being able to fire three shots per pump out of their own seperate barrels. Then i would be putting a new 30rnd shell in the gun every ten shots, along with my spare pistol mags i could wear one of those straps loaded with 30rnd shells...that sounds cool
