    If there can be an AR and an AK picture thread then surely there should be a shotgun picture thread

    Before the A300 the 3901 was offered for those who wanted an economical semi automatic. It was utilitarian and not fancy. But this one was tight and as reliable as the old 390's it was patterned after. I enjoyed it until I got uppity and wanted something prettier. I kind of miss it!

    One of those almost got me 3 hits and a cot. It was cut off at exactly 18” and after a couple hours on the side of the road with Sheriffs deputies, city cops, 1 state police officer, multiple people called on phones the state trooper finally walked up and picked up the gun. Couldn’t figure out how to clear it and asked me how. I told him, he verified empty and handed it to me and let me show him why it was legal. I unscrewed the barrel and handed it back to him since nobody there had a stick or anything to shove down the barrel and measure. Few minutes later we were all on our way home.

    Old Higgins branded high standard. I think it's the predecessor to the supermatic but if not it would be a supermatic. Still has the Higgins adjustable dial-a-duck

    Funny - I hadn't thought of that. Cooler still that this is the next shelf down from the top.

    Here's a few that are near and dear to me.

    My first gun, 870 Express Combo. She's well worn in.
    upload_2021-1-28_12-22-11.png

    My grandpa's Stevens 311 side by side. I've taken it rabbit hunting several times and out for clays a few times (it smarts after 50 or so shots with that plastic butt-pad). I eventually broke the trigger guard, need to get that brazed back on.

    This Red Label is special because I bought it as a gift for myself after I graduated college, started my first job in my field, and made the last payment on my student loans 5 months later.

    I'll be dogged if I don't have exactly that chest dug out of a shed over 25 years ago.

    I hope yours is full of ammo. Mrs F has hers full of quilts.
    (But she doesn't complain <much> about the corner being stacked full of gun cases......)
    Bliss!

    Haven't been hunting in a bunch of years but when I did my Mossberg Model 9200 Turkey gun was always 100% reliable with any shotgun shell that you could get it to chamber.

    My Winchester 20 gauge Model 1300 came kind of late to the hunting game but once I got that shorter barrel it made for a great upland game gun. Also with an 18" barrel it's perfect for home defense too.

    I originally got the Maverick 88 for home defense but adding a couple of extra vent rib, multi-choke barrels to it made it a much more versatile shotgun.

    This one got an unfair showing above. I took a whole week after I retired from the Army to drive from Tombstone, Az to Flagstaff dedicating the entire drive to dirt. Ended up using something like 11 miles on asphalt the whole way. One of the amazing places I found while following the San Pedro River was an old, no screwin' 'round trading post with its own dirt air strip beside it.

    Inside, while digging the vibe of the place, I noticed a sad and ill-attentioned shotgun over the *bar*. When I asked about it they said it was "... jes for lookin' at..." but were happy to show it to me.

    I fell instantly in love with it. Plumb-colored steel, the stock was cracked at the grip, the sear had not been searin' lately and the rust was just enough to be scaring off the straights.

    After whiling much of the afternoon away (imagine - RC colas and moon-pies in Arizona!), cracking wise and letting my Rottweiler's charms do their work I asked if they cared to part with it and since I had the good sense to be sociable rather than carpet-baggery they said why-not with warnings as to its sad state of being.

    Here now, I wasn't scared of ghosty tales (yup; J.J.) and dire predictions surrounding the ultimate condition of all well-shot '97s. I had resurrected several for CAS friends to keep them from buying ChiCom knock-offs in the past. As far as the stock was concerned, I have a weird affinity for brass pin/screws and sinew in the case of wandering cracks.

    In the end, this 1911 '97 which was once a *Full Choke* hunter, knocked down in the distant past to a Ranch-Riot, has become one of my all time favorite guns of any platform.
