It's impractical and stupid heavy when fully loaded, but a fun range toy.

...for the money, get a VEPR-12.

What he said.

Also, if you absolutely feel the need to get a bullpup pump shotgun, you could invoke my jealousy and get a DP-12. Easier to keep your hand from slipping off the pump and wandering in front of the barrel(s), twice the ammo capacity, looks like a real-world version of the Super Shotgun from Doom 3, and doesn't have the stank of a company that's buddy-buddy with George Zimmerman all over it.

I was talking with LGS buddies. One said the as that shells cycle they will wear into the plastic frame. Don't know if it is true or not. Being able to switch feed tubes in a defensive situation would requite a great deal of practice.(IMHO)

Two of my friends own them. Having fired them, I am not a fan. Its heavy, hard recoiling and not a natural pointer. They are also semi-picky with cheap cartridges. On the up side, they are short and have an impressive capacity but require manually switching between tubes. What do you plan to use it for?

Personally, I'd get a Remington, Mossburg, Winchester or FN shotgun and call it a day. I have a FN P-12 and really like it for being quick and easy to shoulder and a natural pointer. On the downside, I am still getting used to the pump action because under recoil, the action will unlock (this is safe and normal) however you must remember to pull the slide all the way back before pushing it forwards again. Its a training issue. The other thing I don't like is that there is a lack of accessories for it to permit the easy mounting of a flashlight tape switch on the hand guard.

If you're on a budget, I would say MKA1919, however if you got the ducats go with Saiga. I have hear rumblings about a new American made AR platform 12 but haven't seen one at the LGS or range yet. MKA is a little picky, likes heavier loads over light stuff, and it kicks like a goddamn mule, but you get 10rd factory box mags, and I believe I may have even seen a drum for it.
