Just in case you ever regret getting rid of it, I have a 12 Ga full rifled Pardner 2 that will bloody your nose if you aren't careful! I scoped it once, and recieved "magnum eyebrow" for my efforts.I have shot a lot of belted magnums, but for me, the most painful gun I ever shot was a single barreled NEF 12 gauge with 3 “ shells. I bought it for my son, got rid of it quick.
Yeah, that brought back a memory. Probably 20 years ago I was at a range outside of Chattanooga TN. Some fellow was having issues sighting in his new "Turkey" gun. Turned out is was one of those NEF 12 GA 3 inch single shots. I said, let me try.......After that I found he had loose mounts on his turkey scope. After lending him my tools to tighten everything up, he asked if I wanted to shoot it again and I was like..................sorry, gotta run, good luck!I have shot a lot of belted magnums, but for me, the most painful gun I ever shot was a single barreled NEF 12 gauge with 3 “ shells. I bought it for my son, got rid of it quick.
A co-worker bought one of the first 835s when they first came out and he was excited. First day he called a bird in and when he pulled the trigger it didn't take him long to figure out his shoulder was tight to the tree he was sitting against. Thought he broke his shoulder and got rid of it that day.Same with the 835!! lol
