Cool Favorite shotgun



Log in to see fewer ads
My all time favorite would be a 410, for many reasons..
It ain't just a shotgun anymore !
Used to fire 44 mags out of my brothers savage 410, even heard you can fire 454's as well as other calibers.
Try that with a 12ga..

Japan's a small country in regards to a LOT of people.

Feel free to post pix of your scatterguns folks.
My father was in the Merchant Marine for a long time, and visited Japan many times; he liked it, but his thoughts pretty much echoed your's. If I recall, almost all of Japan's population lives on or near the Honshu coast.
I would love to visit Hokkaido, try some actual Japanese sake, and maybe do some hunting with a Japanese shotgun I wonder if anyone besides Miroku is making any now? I think Howa is primarily focused on making rifles these days, which is a shame, as those guns they build for S&W were every bit the equal of the classic Remingtons IMO.

I'm a big fan of the old long recoil autos too; there is just something about the function & character of 'em that isn't really available in guns today...

Kind Regards,

I have heard of that as well, that I wouldn't be likely to try it unless circumstances were urgent
My favorite thing about the .410 is that, unlike other shotgun chamberings, it is truly effective (and actually quiet relatively speaking) & viable with reduced loads. If only ammo were cheaper & offered in more premium (read: copper/nickel plated) field loads.

Kind Regards,

Favorite is an olddy but goody. Winchester 1887 12 ga lever shotgun manufactured in 1895. 30" fluid steel barrel with a full choke. It safely takes 2.5 inch shells, 4 in the magazine, 1 on the carrier and 1 in the barrel. Cranking away on that is just fun.

I've owned quite a few shotguns but my current favorite is a Belgium Browning A-5 12 ga. Sadly, it has a plain barrel but is in 95% condition. I wish I still had my uncle's nice little Stevens SxS 311 in .410 w double triggers. Someone made off with it.

Al, beautiful O/U there. I can see why you hung around that woman.

I'm pretty easy. It would've been easier if she'd've had a 4wd truck though.

My dad carried a Savage/Browning humpback 12ga auto with a factory installed adjustable poly choke all my life. I saw him whack 2 wood ducks, male and female, on the wing in one shot with that gun. He was pretty proud of it and kept the male woodie in his freezer for many years showing it off when the occasion arose. We road hunted a lot and would take turns on any birds in the road. The last time I shot it at a grouse it was dad's turn but the bird had walked off the road into thick underbrush and dad told me to go after it as his legs weren't any good any more. The bird flushed within 10' of me and didn't get 25-30' away and I dead centered it with the biggest explosion of feathers either of us had ever pulled off. There wasn't a piece of meat found worth salvaging. One of those time clips of life I hope I'll never forget. His gun fit me very well but the poly choke was tough on the ears. I hated to let that one go.

Remington Spartan 310 20ga. Yah its a cheapo but it just plain fits and has worked flawless since I got it several years ago new for $199. Only other shotgun the fit me this well was a Remmy 332 (price one of those lately) and an old Remmy 1148 16 ga I had when I was in my late 20's.
