I am very interested in purchasing a Weatherby Semi Automatic shotgun either the SA-08 or the Element in Deluxe.
I am from New Jersey and there are no retail stores that stock any of these products. I have read all the positive reviews on both shotguns but would like to have a hands on feel before I purchase. Is this an issue in all areas of the US?

Welcome to the Nation!!! Checking the fit and feel of every shotgun and rifle is important if you've never handled that model. Here in Minnesota I have no problem handling Weatherby or any other brand. It could just be a New Jersey problem or the dealers in your area pushing other brands. I've heard good things about both shotguns you are interested in, but do not own either. Hopefully someone else that belongs to the Nation will chime in that lives in your area.

I don't have the SA but I do have the PA-08 with field and slug barrel. New Jersey isn't the only place that's hard to find Weatherby, it's all about popular demand and what is pushed the hardest. I special order all my Weatherby firearms through a dealer, they have tried all they can to sway me away, but with the toy grade plastic and actions that cycle like there is sand in them, I just can't bring myself to get anything else.
