Here is a picture of my first shotgun...a Stoeger Uplander side by side or double as they are sometimes refered to by shotgun aficionados.

Image

She is a 12 gauge field grade model that come with American Walnut stocks and a 26" ribbed barrel that is fixed choked IC & M and has a gold bead sight. Weight is around 7.5lbs unloaded. I bought her for $180 way back in the day...before the company was bought by Sako, then Benelli, then by Berretta. She retails now for around $400 today...

I took my very first deer with a "pumpkin ball" slug on a hunting trip with my father, and have used it since then to take duck, pheasant, quail, turkey, rabbit, fox, groundhog, and just about any other small game you can think of.

Picked this up at a gun show 3 weeks ago.
20 GA Remington 1100. Just thought it looked nice. :roll:

Image
Seemed to shoot well at the dove field for about 75 rounds. It froze up with a round stuck in the mag tube.
Took it home for a thorough cleaning and all seems OK now. Gun shop said they had seen this before in 1100's running Winchester loads through them. Hope their right on that. The round that was stuck did have a good scrape in the plastic :?

Those 1100 20 ga are great guns. I have a 1100LT that was my dad's before he handed it down to me some years ago and it has been flawless. I couldn't count the quail, rabbits, and doves that it has brought home.

One thing though, I don't shoot Winchester shells, especially the promos, though anything. There are many reports of them getting stuck even in pumps. Those Winchester shells are definitely not what they used to be. Stick with Remingtons and Federals and I bet it will be fine.

Great guns!

WOW! If the Zombie Apocalypse ever happens, I want to be with you guys! I only have one defense type shotgun, a BPS high capacity with a poly-choke. All the rest of my shotguns are walnut and blue field guns (except for one model 37 with a synthetic stock and wooden forearm). Cool guns guys.

Marlin Model 19, 12ga

With the slide-action, the pump forces the bolt through the breach and cocks the hammer much like a lever action rifle. It's a great gun and was made between 1906-1907.

This one's a bit newer than the others, but was discontinued in the early 70s...

Dreadnought No. 1

Have a few 870s and a while back had a thing for the big Remington Super Mags. This is Dreadnought No. 1 (as there is a No. 2 in the works). This pic was right before it was finished and didn't have sights on it. An 870 Super Mag (3 1/2 inch 12ga) with a factory 23-inch rifle-sighted Rem choked barrel, some awesome wood, a Tactical Ordnance magazine tube extension and Clark clamp. All Parkerized in a light gray. It is a beast to be sure.

I liked my Mossberg 590 Cruiser, but with the pistol grip only set-up I didn't get out and shoot it very often. So, I picked up the Blackhawk Knoxx SpecOps adjustable stock this afternoon. Installation was a breeze.

Before pic...

Image

...and with the new stock...

Image

Image

Here it is with the 590A1...

Image

So if it's not a Cruiser anymore I guess it's a "Tactical Breacher" or "590 SP" now, not sure what to call it. The new rig is a much more practical for me and it'll get a lot more range time now. It's got a great feel to it and I can't wait to get it out to the range tomorrow.

talking about case coloring with Lazy eyed sniper reminded about the most beautiful gun I have ever owned. It's a Rizzini Artemis 20 gauge. It is absolutely gorgeous, but alas I couldn't hit a barn with it. It just didn't fit me, so I had to sell it. I still haven't found a gun as pleasing to the eye that sells for under $3000

Thanks Rossignol. That photo doesn't even do it justice. It was absolutely iridescent. I hated like anything to get rid of it, but I just couldn't hit with it. I went from 23-24's down to 15-16's. That's how bad it was.
