Bolt action shotguns
« on: October 31, 2008, 03:55:25 AM »
Anyone own or like these?  Many shotgunners disdain them and as so, they can sometimes be found at bargain prices.  I have owned a few over the years, I still have a 12ga J.C.Higgins(Sears) version of a High Standard one.  I'd like to pick up a 16ga and especially a .410 version eventually maybe. 

My 20ga I sold to someone who never paid me for it >:(  Mossberg did/does make a modern version for slug hunting and at one time marketed a sort of riot version of a bolt action shotgun!

I generally prefer then to single shot shotguns, I kind of think of then as a single shot shotgun with ammo in reserve, one drawback being one must remove hand from trigger area to chamber a new round.  Also I'd be embarassed to bring one to a trap range :D

The sky is falling, the sky is falling!

Guess what one of my project guns is....? I putting back together and old H&R 120. It's a 16 ga. bolt action. I'm still tracking down a few parts for it.

:) Thank you Sir, may I have another ;)
