What guns/gear would you buy if you had a $4500 budget? in SASS Wire Posted November 30, 2016 Get good leather. When you learn your shooting skills more you will eventually get a rig built for you. Shotgun shell belt get a doc noper. Simply put there isn't a better rig out there Old model or New it's a personal preference. But I'd recommend 5 1/2". Especially if your shooting gf or duelist. They stay on target better and you will get less misses. Marlin or 73 depends on your feel. Marlins just have a different feel to leveling them. Rifle runs normally go from 2 to 7 seconds not too much spread More time is lost with the shotgun than any other gun. A good 4 shot run is under 5 seconds mid pack is between 6 and 12 sec. Get the stock cut for you! That's very important. You won't be fast if your struggling with a gun. I run against the grain and run a stock double trigger steoger. I like that the chambers are closer together and when I'm on the timer struggles to pick up my second shot. It works for me. My best 8 shot string is 6.43. Basicly meaning don't discount the stoeger. I've been running the same gun for 5 years it's still tight and smoken fast when i remember to flip off the safety Best advice is from the tiny straight arrow. Get out there and jump in.
