Re: Let's Talk "Hand/Shotguns"
Thanks for the input guys. I will look more at the Rossi.
I would really prefer a contender or encore.......
But I decided to invest in as many hounds as the local government allows , with GPS tracker trainer and vet bills for each one, as well as replacing all the crap they have chewed, eaten, or peed on; a Rossi is going to be at the top of my budget for this season.
The .410s we are discussing are all rifled and legally a handgun. A 20 gauge, or any gauge for that matter would have a barrel over 18" and an overall length of 26", making it by law a long gun.
While it wouldn't be worth the hassle of all the government permits, I think a stainless encore 20 with a 12" ported barrel would be a sweet piece.
