Decisions, Decisions

Some of the guys at my club are getting Jerry Miculek 930 shotguns to shoot in 3-gun matches.  I'm toying with the idea.  Hopefully, I'll be out Tuesday evening to see and shoot Steve's new one.  But I question, for myself anyway, the wisdom of spending $600 or so on a new shotgun that I will likely only use once a year, if that.  I am not planning on investing all that much time in 3-gun matches right now. I'd love to shoot a few of these matches at our club over the next few years.  It sounds like a lot of fun.  But I'll use my Mossberg 500 or even my Remington 1100 for now (but not my Benelli over and under!).

At this stage in my shooting I'm pretty committed to IDPA and USPSA competition.  I'm not planning on diluting my pistol practice, and quite honestly, doubt that I will have the time to devote to 3-gun matches.  I'd rather spend the money on ammo and more major IDPA and USPSA matches this year.  I want to perfect my game in these sports.  I still see a lot of room for improvement (obviously).  I'm gonna go whole hog and try to reach IDPA Master in CDP and ESP in the (near) future.  I also want to make some progress in USPSA Production division with my M&P 9mm.

So for now I think I'll pass on a new shotgun.
