Time for a new toy

I don't know why, but I've gotten the strangest urge to go buy a 12 gauge coach gun this weekend. I mean, I've got a fine pump shotgun with an 18" barrel, but there's something about a double barreled shortie that just appeals to me.
Am I the only one out there that likes 'em?

I'd love to have one but I just got my first shotgun, Remington 870 Express, so I need to see how I'm going to do with it... home defense, you know...

hehehe... word verification=calif

how fucked up is that???

Andy said...

jim did you get the 870 super magnum?

Tattoo Jim said...

Nah, Andy, just the regular 870 synthetic with 2 shot extension, 18" barrel in 20 gauge. I wanted something the wife would be o.k. shooting and with my back, shoulder, neck problems... something I could shoot too. Now all I need to do is get my ass to the range and see how some #5 buckshot works... maybe a Michael Jackson target... gotta watch out for the zombies...

I like them, except for the ammo capacity. Saw a nice one at the last gun show I went to. Side by side, 12 ga., brass frame, dark furniture.

Ended up bringing hom an Enfield, instead.

I've always thought they were neat looking (and feeling) pieces. My desire to get one increased dramatically after the "Best two dollars I ever spent" line in the movie...Young Guns II, was it?

Of course, TBOT dispelled the myth about the dimes in there, but it was still a great movie line.

Better get more than that. What do you think the Carbon taxes on bacon will be after this:
