"Say-guh"I've always wondered - is it pronounced "say-guh", "sigh-guh", "say-eye-gah", or something else?
Actually, those went stupid long before Sandy Hook. It was the threat of the ATF reclassifying them as something other than sporting shotguns and the rumors of a possibility of a ban in 2011 that sent the market through the roof. I've wanted one for a while, but not at the prices they demand these days...I want a converted Saiga 12 gauge but they've become very hard to find since Sandy Hook.
Technically, it should be pronounced "sigh-gah" (like "Saigon" with "ga" instead of "gon") which is the name of a medium-sized goat antelope (Saiga tatarica) of the plains of northern Eurasia; but it's more commonly pronounced "say-guh."
