12 ga Rossi Overland 20". Good stuff. Lots of rounds through it and still tight!

Anyone here own a Stoeger? I like the looks of them.

Bought a 12 gauge Stoeger around 11 years ago.

Double shots with 3" magnum buckshot are fun.

Yes, the Norinco outside hammer Coach Gun I got for SASS. I have the technique down for rapid loading and it can get fast.

Have a .410 stoeger.....never shot it.

It looks cool as hell though.

I'm very pleased with the quality

I've used my neighbor's to shoot trap a few times. No problem. They kick a bit, but they are good guns.

after seeing what one did in Open Range, I got one for home defense

A friend of mine has a Spartan.

I gots one.

Spartan 12 gauge.
Nickel frame with blued barrels.

Its a lot of fun to shoot, I was blasting milk gallon jugs and they would just explode.

They make a great home defense weapon.

My shoulder bruised reading that.

Didn’t someone here lose a big chunk of their hand because they had the hammer down on a loaded chamber on an exposed hammer shotgun? Seems I remember something about that.

Doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with the gun, but you gotta know not to do that.

My only "coach gun" is a Stevens 311. Actually, I think it's a 530 or 5100...who knows, Savage/Stevens used so many model #s for essentially the same basic gun. Mine has the cheesy plastic brown/black marbled "fake wood" Tenite furniture. I'd like to replace the plastic with real wood but other projects come first. Bought it already bobbed to 18.25", I myself would have stopped at 20".
Served as #2 house gun for a while (both barrels of buck, with 5 more on a buttstock shell holder). Made the mistake once of touching off both barrels at the same time
Taken down it fits nicely into a decent sized toolbox
