I'm too lazy to run a trombone gun, so I got a 1100 instead.
It seems unusual to read of a shotgun being used in a home defense situation these days.
Yes, I am just fine with my 20. If you need more than a .60 cal slug, or 20, .25 cal pellets, it probably didn't matter what you had anyway.A couple of combat-experienced friends of mine prefer 16 gage, or even 20.
My father had a 97, 28". Somewhere along the line it disappeared. He passed before I knew it was gone. Don't know if he sold it, or someone he lent it to just kept it. That was over 30 years ago. He did have an Ithaca 37 in 20 that I wasn't aware of, so perhaps he traded.So, what did I choose as my home-defense shotgun? My reliable, much used especially in SASS, Winchester 1897 pump 12-gage. The riot gun with 20" barrel and target loads.
Love the look. Reminds me of a WWI Trench Shotgun minus the pistol grip of course.
I keep being tempted to pickup one of the Century Arms rabbit ears coach guns. Yes they're made in China, but what isn't?My choice is a 12 ga coach gun with 3" chambers. I feed it 3" 00 buckshot with each shell holding 15 ( not 9 ) 00 buckshot. it also holds 5 more rounds in a side saddle bandolier. It uses dual triggers so I don't have to worry about a single trigger inertia mechanism failing to swap barrels when a shot is fired. The coach gun is the partner of a .45 acp 1911a1.
The gun in my photo is an H&R Pardner Protector and it's made in China. Clone of a Remington 870 and so heavy it feels like it's made from a recycled T-38 tank.I keep being tempted to pickup one of the Century Arms rabbit ears coach guns. Yes they're made in China, but what isn't?
Authentic features like fully functional rabbit-ear hammers and double triggers make the Century Arms Coach gun a versatile workhorse for an affordable price. Specifications: Weight: 7.8www.budsgunshop.com
