Went to the local Sportsmans Warehouse and looked at shotguns. Looks like the BPS is going to be my only choice if I want to shoot deer left handed.
Remington doesn't manufacture a left-handed rifled slug barrel, and it's just not as nice of a gun as the BPS. The BPS I looked at was gorgeous! The action was very very smooth, and it just felt very good in my hands.
The left handed 870 was priced at $309, and the BPS at $469.
I'll just need to save a few dollars here and there and hopefully have a BPS by Summer or Fall. :banana:
You can also shop around on Gunbroker or Auctionarms for an Ithaca 37. There are a ton of them out there and they bottom eject like a BPS. Being around for 60+ years there is also a ton of parts for them including slug barrels. You can sometimes get them as cheap as 250 on the sites.
i don't like the idea of owning a used gun. i'd like to have a brand new gun that I can call my own and possibly pass down to a child down the road. the bps i shouldered just felt right. and $469 for a brand new gun is something that i can handle.
