When I get back to the boating forum, I will get the name they recommended.

Not for hunting, more for defense.
I think Hard Case is correct. I lived in Fla, and now in Hawaii, and never did see a stainless shotgun. There is the 870 Marine, and also a Mossberg 590 in "Marinecote" (read satin nickel, or industrial hard chrome)

There is also the Ithaca M37 Defense (IMHO the BEST pump gun) in "Perma-Guard" finish that is rated to withstand 90 hrs of salt spray.

Some good info, I am guessing I will go with a pistol for now.

Brackish water is a mess for metal.Even trolling motors carry a salt water rating(read, more expensive)

To be honest, I think I will just start out boating in the safer neighborhoods.
I just as well avoid any more hassel than regular life jacket inspection.
The local Sheriff and Dept. of Wildlife and Fisheries have been really invasive for the last few years around here.The Coast Guuard patrols also (with .50 caliber machine guns)

Back to guns now, thanks.

Just back from Prudhoe Bay, IMO it was really worth the trip, AK is a beautiful place & you need lots of time to take it all in. I'm looking forward to returning & exploring some places i didn't have time to ride.RIP Ron Melton

I've always liked the look of these. Not mine. Semi and pump action. No longer imported.

Hollywood seems to love them. Although as a real world shotgun, they didn't have the best track record. For looks though, they are badass. Or is that heavyass. The only other Semi/Pump that comes to mind is the Benelli M3 which isn't as cool looking.

Mine has a Nordic +5 mag tube, bolt handle as well as some other goodies.
My mag tube is a Nordic as well. My experience with Benelli shotguns has been fairly stellar. I have two, the M2 and also a Cordoba 12 ga. field gun. What I read somewhere is that you're supposed to put a couple of boxes of heavy hunting 3" shells through them right out-of-the-box as a break-in. The article claimed that it would make them more reliable with lighter loads following such a break-in. I didn't know whether I believed it or not, but used that method with both guns. Neither has given me a bit of trouble or ever failed to cycle or feed. I mostly shoot light target loads for most of my plinking and practice.

I've fired the M2 without even seating it against my shoulder, 'from the hip' if you will, and even there where it is allowed to recoil more freely (almost like limp-wristing a semi-auto handgun) I've had no failures. Yet. Admittedly the M2 hasn't been fired nearly as much as the Cordoba, I've not had it as long and have used the Cordoba for not only hunting, but trap, skeet and just recently a couple rounds of sporting-clays, for the first time! What a riot that was! Tough sport, but very very fun. Anyway, I'm sold on the Benelli inertia system.

The receiver is marked "U.S.", with the original factory dark olive parkerized finish, with approximately 98% finish remaining. It has the original Redfield scope base (matched and serialized to the rifle). This rifle included the original Redfield 3X-9X Accu-range scope (matched and serialized to the rifle). USMC contract scope has the original black anodized finish. Also includes: bolt (matched and serialized to the rifle), original scope lens covers, original 4-screw Redfield rings, and the original M1907 leather sling dated "APR 1977" and MRT treated.The muzzle gauges .5, and it has a special clip-slot receiver.

You could buy a crate full of these instead:

2 things:

1) As Cody pointed out, I don't have any money. At least not this month. I decided that I want a double action bazillion shot 22 revolver. The only people that seem to make that are Taurus and Smith and Wesson. The Taurus guns sounds kinda spotty but the S&W costs almost twice as much. I see there are some places online that sell the S&W 617 for a little under $700, is it worth saving up a little longer the get the Smith? I see they are expensive but I don't have enough knowledge to know if it's worth it

2) Why are gun sellers the only assholes that won't eat credit card fees? Cash price blah blah blah, I can't imagine their margins are *that* low.
