    My husband bought me this gun for for my birthday couple years ago. I’m short so the shorter length in this shotgun makes it easier to handle.

    Picked up a compact the other day for use in the tangled forests on northern New England. May or may not switch to full sized stock. Gun works great!! Initial outing 50 rounds no probs whatsoever.

    Bought this for my son to use. Made a huge difference versus trying to use my larger heavier 12s.

    I got one last year. so much lighter than my Remington. Easy to shoulder and shoot. It has never given me any problems and is easy to take apart and clean. I have shot many ducks and geese with this gun. I love it.

    I bought one SA-08 for my wife. 20 ga. Wife has MS, the browning BPS, and Citoris’ were just too much recoil. I took her to the firearms shop, had her lift and swing every 20 ga. in stock. The SA-08 compact seemed to fit well. The short length of pull works very well with all the clothing she wears when we are turkey hunting. I took the 20 ga. goose hunting (snows and canadas’) and found it to be amazingingly good [with the new ammo offerings]. We then discovered the SA-549 Turkey gun, I got her one in 20 ga. and one for me in 12 ga. I bought chokes from Carlson’s for the Turkey guns and use the Turkey guns for almost everything. I recently too the SA-08 to a skeet shoot (I am a life member of the NSSA) and was suprised I was not tired after several hundred clays. At 69 years, I still bust clays and birds fairly well. The light weight and no recoil makes these shotguns a joy to carry and shoot. Note: Wife is 5’9″ and when bundled up in cold weather, the short length of pull really helps her to mount the shotgun properly. I am 5′ 2″ and need the shorter length of pull – short arms. 😉

    I bought this for my daughter last year. She has shot over 500 rounds thru it while skeet shooting and duck hunting. No jams, no problems. Now I’m looking for one for myself, to turkey hunt with. Much easier to carry than a full size 12 gauge. Simply an outstanding shotgun.
