I looked at one today the big 5 special for $180 and I think I am going to get it, but had a question can you safley leave it loaded for a long period of time and what happens if you drop it on the exposed hammers?

Most modern weapons have a hammer block. If the trigger is not in the full pull position it will not fire.

Take the weapon and pull the trigger while holding the hammer.

Let go of the trigger and slowly lower the hammer.

If it has a hammer block, it will not engage the firing pin.

I hope this helps.

I was interested in buying a cheap Russian coach gun a couple years ago. Then, I got a chance to fire one. The gun didn't break open real smooth, the triggers were incredibly heavy, and the latch to open/ close it would not always lock. It was novel, but not really convenient.

I like the way they look they are short and wide. what sucks is I will have to wait 10days I have all sorts of guns and they are making me wait 10 days for a 2 shot shotgun!
