    I own a Remington 887 pump action shotgun in 12 gauge. It was one of those puppy-in-a-window things when I glimpsed it on the used gun rack at my local gun store a couple of years ago. By far, the softest recoiling 12 gauge I have ever shot. I also own a 100 year old Stevens single-barrel, single-shot 12 gauge in really good condition that kicks like the angry mule that it is.

    The only addition I'd make is an old Lefever Nitro Special 12 gauge double-barrel. I had one from my grandfather but gave it to my son, with orders that it either goes to one of his children or one of his cousins, but it stays in the family. I do miss it, though - tough as nails and just as reliable.

    I keep a few cheapo Rem 870 Express shotguns scattered around the house / shop for home defense, but my hunting preference is the single shot. Considering that I'm by far the worst shot on this forum, it's more economical to miss my targets in ones rather than in groups of three.

    We favour Mossberg for more modern shotties but we also have a special spot for the old "humpbacks."

    Addendum to my previous post.

    Tom, I admire your sartorial choices. One of my great-great-great grandfathers immigrated to America from Chichester. I hope he had the tailored sensibilities that you demonstrate. As for me, my shooting ensemble consists of a long-sleeved button down shirt, blue jeans, outdoor hiking boots, and a western hat. Comes from growing up on a farm/ranch and a 30-40 Krag in the utility room, I s'pose. That, and a steady diet of those old black-and-white TV westerns from the 1950s and '60s.

    If I wore Tom's shooting outfit I might be mistaken for a gentleman.

    Most of my shotguns are for defensive purposes and one, a Stoeger Field side by side, for rabbits and grouse. My defensive shotguns are a Mossberg 930 tactical SPS and a Rock Island arms pump. All are 12 gauge.

    Really, I haven't read so much polite and considerate prose from this buncha ill-mannered Taurus Armed reprobates since - forever. You're a good influence, Tom!

    Agree but anyone of us 'Muricans start talking or posting with a British or cockney accent, well, that is where we'll have to worry. Most of us can clean up well.
