Looking to Buy a Shotgun

Remington preferrably.

870 express or wingmaster would be nice, but not required.

I am in California and willing to pay for shipping to authorized dealer. Unfortunaly I am still working on getting my FFL...

Hey CC, have you tried lookin

Hey CC, have you tried lookin glocally?  There are tons of Wingmasters for sale around.  Look at Gunbroker, or some of the other sites.  That way you could probably avoid shipping. 

I have 2 wingmasters, and a Benelli Nova.  The Nova is a nice buy, if your budget allows.  It's not alot of $$$$ like the top end guns, but it's nice because it will handle all the game around here, from doves to turkey to ducks.

We only have a couple of

We only have a couple of local stores and they JACK up their prices. I have been playing around gunbroker quite a bit the last few days. I did happen to find a good sale at Bass Pro shop but that's in Manteca, a couple hours from me but the 870 is only $269 right now. Might just be worth it though.

Might be worth the drive,

Might be worth the drive, that's a good price. Plus, you can always make a full day out of a trip to Bass Pro.

Yeah, but I know if I go

Yeah, but I know if I go there....I will spend too much. I'm thinking that's what will end up happening anyways, I want the gun.

Not an 870 but I have several 12s to sell
I have 4 twelve gauges that I would like to sell. I bought these to keep and have used them all, but need to pay some bills.

A vintage Vulcan Arms side by side with free floating hammers ($250)
This gun points and patterns like you would not believe.

A Stevens model 311 sxs - forearm is mismatched but the gun has been upgraded to a manual safety so that it is ready to fire immediately when closing rather than the factory installed safety that needs switching off before firing.($300). Honest mans working gun. Not fancy but functional and solid.

a vintage outside hammer W. Richards damascus steel gun ($350)
Classic beauty that you can use reasonable factory loads in for pheasant and partridge.

and a Tristar (Ducks Unlimited) semi auto black with black synthetic stock ($350).
This gun just works. I have taken a dozen or so geese with it but need to pay for other things.

More pics available if you want them.
