Pointless to own KS7 and ksg?

I know this is a question open to interpretation, but is it Pointless to own a Ks7 AND KSG?

I am currently waiting for my ks7 but the shop has a KSG now, the shotgun I originally wanted. 

Would it be kinda dumb to own both?

    Oh, you don't know us very well do you?  :D  Buy them all is always going to be our answer......no matter what two, three, 10 or 12 guns you are trying to decide between.

    Hahhahah I was just speaking in the context of having two similar shotguns back to back vs maybe getting an AR instead 🤔

    While common sense says two blonds ain’t bad. Branching out with one blond and one brunette.........variety. 

    Shotgun and AR.......... more better.

    If you can afford both, go for it.  If not, choose one and save for the other. Need is always part of the equation, but want is a wild card

    I agree.  That's what I would do.  Opens up a lot more possibilites.

    I'm not familiar with the KS7.  I am somewhat familiar with the KSG, and I'm not a fan.  The ones I've used were prone to jam up if not run with force and have the annoying habit of trowing the empties down onto my right wrist, which can start to get just sore enough to be annoying.  If you don't run it with muscle, it will trap a live round between the lift gate and the top of the action, requiring the gun to be disassembled to fix and complete taking it out of action until that is done.  And the switch between magazine tubes isn't exactly intuitive.  I'd just rather run a 870, 500 or some such shotgun.  I'm much better with reloads from a side saddle on them than I am trying to fuss with the intricacies of the KSG.  Of course, that's pretty much all just based on my opinion.

    As long as you're buying more guns its OK

    Personally, I'd probably wait for the KS7 for the simpler mechanism and lower weight.  If you're expecting more zombies than that can handle, a shotgun is probably no longer the correct tool.

    Only caveat there is that there is no rapidly reloading that mechanism like you can with Remingtons or Mossbergs.  That's mainly where I see the utility of the extra tube.

    Now there’s going to have to be an AR post/question to help with my research. 🤔
