Re: looking for a decent O/U in 16ga for clays
I'm ok with it only lasting a few years. I just don't want to drop $1500 on a gun I might not like. I'd rather spend +/-$500 as a trial gun before dropping a blue collar fortune on an unsure idea.
I enjoy the 16ga because its different. Most people don't shoot them. The hulls are a bit pricey by comparison, but it comes with the territory so to speak. I have a small collection of 16ga shotguns. My first shotgun was a Model 1912 16ga made in 1914 with a 2 9/16 chamber. Me and my dad had to custom trim hulls just to shoot it. Since then I've been hooked on those odd little guns
My aspirations are simple.
Send the kids to college, hunt, and own more guns
