    Default looking for lefty semi auto

    I am considering beginning the search for a new shotgun. One that is made for the marsh and saltwater. But it also must be left handed and fit a woman (5'8"). And affordable. LOL

    I currently have a rem 11-87, which I do like, except it is blued and built for a man.

    The other option is that I keep the gun I have and have the stock cut to fit me. Does anyone have suggestions for a gunsmith that can do this in the case I decide the budget will not allow for a new gun?

    thanks a bunch!

    Hi Julie,

    Vince @ Precision Arms has cut several stocks/fit some for the smaller memebers of the family. I have also seen some nice work done by ??? for a friend...I will get ahold of them and find out who did it.

    PCnAK - thanks for the info..While I still would like a gun made for the marsh, I think my 11-87 will suffice once I get the stock cut for me. I have been studying up on LOP and other gun fitting subjects because my shooting has been 'miserable'...man, I need to have my gun fit to ME. LOL...

    I did some research and it appears that the length of pull on my shotgun is roughly 3.5" longer than MY length of pull (based upon info gleaned from youtube).. I will know for certain when I take it to the gunsmith.

    Hi Juli; I just picked up a used Browning bps from a forum member this weekend and yesterday put a few rounds of 5 stand thru it; I'm a southpaw and this is my first dedicated (ducks/geese) gun. Love it and no problems feeding or ejecting shells. It is a heavy gun not sure if they make em in a shorter barrel but they do make them in a cammo version.

    Well sorry just noticed you were looking for a semi-auto!
