That is precisely why I wanted my Remington Spartan (Baikal) 20 gauge coach gun, because I was riding my GoldWing up to Waco some years back with my Winchester 1400 in a gun case strapped on the back and i was paranoid to leave the bike to go in a convenience store. Then I got to thinkin' about if I had trouble and needed to catch a ride, what would I do? The little 20 locked up in the top case of that Wing. I don't own the Wing anymore, but it fits in an innocent looking back pack which I could take with me if I had trouble. I've been shooting it at doves for about 5 years now, many limit days under its belt. It's a fine shooting little gun and only ran me 300 bucks. If I have one criticism of it, was fit and the whippy nature of the little short shotgun, but I shimmed it to fit pretty well and I knew it'd take some getting used to going in, trade off for its compact size. I have shot 50 percent with it on dove and that's about as good as I do with my 12 gauge Winchester gas gun and its 28" tube. I just have to concentrate a little more on swing and follow through. The gun itself has given me NO trouble, is a sturdy built gun if not the prettiest. It is a utilitarian gun for me. You're not going to get hand checkered walnut and engraving for 300 bucks, ya know. I didn't buy it for cosmetics, bought it to USE and had a niche to fill.
