I agree. In a poll you can use 50 selections. Even though there are several selections with no votes yet, in the previous poll all of those brands either had votes or were mentioned in posts to the poll.
Lots of folks find a brand that they like & stick with it. I know a fella that has 10 shotguns of a single brand. In hind sight I'd take out all of the current 0 vote getters & redistribute those selections to add additional selections for each of the most popular brands. When you do that though you get complaint posts like, "There is no option for JC Higgens. That was my first gun and I still have it." or "I see you have additional options for Benelli, Browning, Beretta, Remington & Winchester. There should be additional boxes for (insert your favorite brand). I have three of them."
In the good old days thousands of guns were sold by Montgomery Wards. They were produced for Monkey Wards by various manufacturers and sold under the Westernfield brand. Zero votes so far. I bet those guns are still out there. I suppose lots of the folks on this site that have been able to support their dog(s), dog games & hunting habits also have acquired nicer modern shotguns.
