Nothing to do with shooting then.

Not the style most of us do in Britain.  
It was ok for Combat but we must be cognisance that armys use weapons sets in different styles, from my experience the British Army it would not have been as good as other options. How the French deployed their shotguns in Afghanistan it could have been a good option.

Blimey, thread resurrection 🙂

They may not be to every bodies tastes but they hold a great deal of ‘Collectors’ value and curiosity, we’re it not then why are they so pricey and unobtainable?

We all collect ‘stuff’, I don’t know what many people collect but I’m sure not into stamp collecting or say classic cars. I don’t have a tin plate toy collection nor a model railway, but I don’t cast aspersions on those who do.

There was a time when the purists poured scorn on using an O/U on any shoot. Now there even a gradual acceptance of semi autos.

If we don’t learn to embrace and accept all forms of shooting and personal choices, then we are indeed doomed. It won’t be the Politicians and Home Office causing our demise, but ourselves.

Quite. There are many who by diverting criticism to others think that what they themselves do, will be deemed more acceptable to our critics. 
Sadly, even our shooting org’s have tried this in the past. 😕
When my FEO was round here the other week, checking on security, he remarked that he loved big bikes, the faster the better. He later asked me why I had so many guns; he wasn’t criticising, just interested, to which I replied ‘I just love guns, always have. Just like you with your bikes.’ He just smiled and said. ‘Fair enough.’

Although I think the SPAS 12 was a military failure I'd still love one. As one of the earlier posters wrote, there's nothing better than  clearing a stand with an old pump gun to raise a few eyebrows! 

Apart from use as specialist entry tools or teargas launchers, shotguns have very limited military utility.

If you have an FAC there's one for sale at the moment.

£1500 for that hunk of junk?!

There are some interesting guns on that link, for me the SPAS is the second worst there (in terms of gun and price) only the A5 being worse value. The MP-A taking bronze. 

Actually the SPAS is the gold position. Even at £1000 for such old technology and ugly lines, I would take the A5 over the SPAS. 

I don’t mean to cause offence, each to their own but that is a truly shocking cost.
