thinking about my first auto 12 gauge. I will NOT open the debate on brand preference, it could get winded. instead I want to know what are the pros and cons of inertia versus gas cycling. not only now but 20 or more years down the road

Long story short, both are (can be ) excellent and reliable. The main thing would be your intended use, should you be looking for a dedicated goose gun then the gas op would be grand. Some guns have problems cycling differing shell lengths reliably ect...

What uses do you have in mind? Single use or one gun does all?

I have a buddy that lives in Argentina and they call the Remington 1100 the Remington 550 cause it only works half the time. These are high volume shooters though taking upwards of thousands of shots a day at dove.

The biggest advantage to the inertia drive systems is that you can go from 2 3/4" target loads to 3 1/2" magnums with out changing anything on the gun.

the inertia one I am looking at calls for shells with at least 3 DRAM.

I plan to use it for geese and ducks. upland birds will get my old 870 or an OU
