The pump action is made to be loaded with shells through its slide. New shot shells are placed into the chamber, with the slide moved to the rear and then pumped forward with every shot.

"This is a very good primary weapon for beginners, as it is easy to handle and very durable. This weapon will surely be dangerous in any user’s hands. Id give this a 9/10 for overall performance, since afterall i havent had a single problem with this weapon" - Ronald Smith, 28 years old, owner of a Mossberg 590 Pump Action Shotgun

“I love my Remington 1100 shotgun.--- high quality, dependable, durable, and reasonable in price. I bought the gun for only $1099. You really get what you pay for!” – Kenneth Smith, 32 years old, owner of a Remington Model 1100 Shotgun

“I have several shotguns and rifles in my collection. Recently, O just bought this Ultralight Benelli for only $1889 and felt very happy and satisfied with the performance. It is consider to be the lightest 12-gauge semi-automatic in production. It is easy to carry and I super love it” - Jerry David, 42 years old, owner of a Ultralight Benelli, a side-by side shotgun

“"I think it's one of the few really great deals I've gotten. I paid $165 NIB for the weapon, or $185 on my door after transfer. For that I got essentially an 870 in tactical furniture, with ghost ring sights, and because of the longer stock magazine, it's 5+1 vs 4+1. I added 6-round side saddle and a two-round extension to mine (there's a guy on THR who specializes in these), and I'm still under $250 for a very capable shotgun in full HD trim.

And, just to make sure it wasn't all show and no go, I used it in an IDPA-style shotgun match at Pelham as well as the USCG 3-Gun at Hartford, and it performed flawlessly" - Scotts Lee, 28 years old, owner of a Norinco 982 shotgun
