OK I got my new Stoeger M3500. It has a 28" barrel and an extended Carlson's Crematory extra full choke tube. I got a Floating gun case too, you know just in case.
Happy camper, NOW.
It was a crap show all the way.
Multiple trips back to the store, all around poor experience with ordering a gun with Scheels sporting goods. 
I do a lot of business with them, till now good things, a bit $$$$$.
We only have basically two Sporting goods stores, some only gun shops but none carry Stoeger/Benelli.
Stoeger is shut down in Turkey do to CV19.
Scheels was the only ones that had the one I wanted just not in my store. I thought it would be a simple transfer from store to store.
Long story short They messed around so long all the other store sold what they had. Mine was paid for and they ended up buying one from some other outlet. Fine, one good thing was I ended up with an $100 gift card too.Which I used on the choke tube, $59 and the gun case, $49. 
Now the stock, The had ordered it from Stoeger and had at least a 120 day back order. Two trips to the store trying to find the status of the order I canceled it and got my $$$ back.
I just ordered it from Midwest gun works, they had some in Max 5 like the gun in stock.
Same price as Scheels even with $13 shipping.
There is a not on the sight saying to add 5 days to the shipping.
 I'm hoping it is sooner then 120 days...Ouch
Some Pics next to my 870.

I hope that once everything is done and you have shot it a few times the frustration won't seem as bad. 

Anyway, Nice shotgun.

I have always considered myself to be quite the bullshitter, But ocasionally it is nice to sit back and listen to a true professional......So, Carry on.
