I just found out yesterday from a reliable source from KEL-TEC that the KSG'S have started shipping. They shipped out around 250 THURSDAY 12-22-11 before they close for 2 weeks. There are over 10,000 of them on backorder so good luck getting one. These are awesome as I have had the pleasures of firing my friends when he was testing it out. Hopefully they shipped. I have info to the first 3 distributors that are getting them.
PM me if interested
I should get one asap if all goes well but we will see. :D

But that thread does not have any info for the releasing of the shotgun nor does it have a poll.
I am just interested in what others would pick for their self defense shotgun provided availability

I'm interested in a couple of them as conveneient shotguns I could put in my vehicles or a boat, simply becuase of their convenient length and relative cost. They are Kel Tecs, every kel tec product I have ever picked up does not have the quality I want in a front-line defnese weapon, but in terms of a budget-minded "better than nothing / dont care if it gets beat to Sh1t", its perfect, which is why I'm going to throw one under the back bench in my dually.

There's also the Weatherby TR series, pump or semi-auto.

I have both the FN SLP and the MOSSBERG 590A1. For me it is the capacity and function for these 2 guns. It seems that the FN is smoother . But I do like the feature of 14 +1 with the KSG

They are released! Sold one of the first on GB. They will not be a mass produced weapons system, remember the RFB and the prodcution numbers on them. Don't look for them being on sale at your local dealer anytime soon.

Started it at MSRP with no reserve, went for $1275.00. Distributor got in 3, I was lucky to get one.

So its selling for roughly double the MSRP as a pump shotgun.

Whoop Dee Doo. Seems like a folding stock AK-style Saiga 12ga outdoes it most categories and costs less than half that.

If the KSG was a semi I'd be more apt to spend that kind of cash, although the quality and reliability are relatively unknown at this point. Going off of Kel Tec's rep as a "cheap" gun manufactuer, you're taking a pretty big gamble on the KSG at $1250.

If the demand is there, the KSG will be mass produced... what, you think Kel Tec doesn't to be RICH?! Lol, I remember when the RFB came out they were selling pretty high, now they're basically a novelty, there is low supply, but also low demand.

I can sell ALL the RFB's I can get! Just can't get them, so the "novelty" line is out the window and I would put its quaility up against alot of weapons. Ran 500 rounds through one in a day without a misfire or jam, thats ALOT better than most outa the box PS90's. Not a major KelTec fan but those two weapons (KSG/RFB) are a little more solid than the standard run of the mill production weapon the ship.

I agree, I'd be more likely to consider it as a semi w/ 14+1 shells. also, Kel Tec says it's MSRP is in the $800 range, so nowhere near double at $1200...at the same time, I wouldn't pay more than MSRP. The Saiga w/ bulpup conversion looks nice, but has some funky ergos for a right hander since it was not made for this setup. If some of you are very anxious and can't live w/o this thing, one GB sell has starting bid $599 and "buy it now" for $2200 LOL Another has it listed as "rare"...some people are a$$h0les and some people are suckers. I'm sure the price will be back to normal in a year, maybe less.

Interesting poll results. 23% picked a gun they haven't seen.

Don't get me wrong, I think its a unique design and I'd like to own a couple KSG's for use as a high-power weapon in a tight area, aka, I 'm thinking of putting this thing in my truck. It offers full-barrel power with non-SBS paperwork in a tight and convenient package that I could easily store under or behind a seat. Its a Kel Tec, so its polymer and its cheap, and I don't care if it jiggles around in a vehilce the rest of its life...

The problem is.. its not "cheap" yet. Maybe next year when the new wears off and I can get one from one of the guys on this forum for around 600-700 the juice will be worth the squeeze. Until then, a $250 mossberg with a folder on it seems much more up to the task.

I'd take a Saiga over the KelTec. Just the semi auto alone takes that win! As for getting a KSG for 600-700 likely in a year, guess that depends on overall production and if a forum sponsor can get one. If you remember I WAS a forum sponsor and was the only one to ever get RFB's. Cost on this unit is $575, and unfortuantly i'm in business for a profit or its not worth doing it
