KG, I have no problem with "old designs"--my EDC sidearm's engineering IS older than even my oldest living relative, after all... LOL and my only problem with an old-school coachgun would be the lack of ready ammo on-tap.

Well, that and the fact that so far in my experience I have one of those misshapen shoulders that it's all but impossible to make a stock fit into, paired with the stubby arms that come with being a short guy (5'6"). LOL
About 15 years ago I picked up a cut down Ugartechea 12 ga, which is a downright decent Spanish double gun. But some idiot cut down a not very cheap gun, and turned it into a cheap gun, but with a little style. It had a coin finish receiver with some respectable light engraving. The wood was rather straight grain, but had beautiful color. The tubes were quality barrels, not even mono-blocked; this was a good quality double. 19" of tubes though. When it had what I'm assuming were 28-30" tubes, I'm betting the gun was probably just over 6lbs. Now missing most of that length, she was just a touch over 5lbs. Well I was going to use it for a home defense gun and maybe, just maybe some Cowboy action. So I needed to see how she handled with some #4 Buck with a maximum charge behind it and a 2 ¾" shell. The first shot hit me like a left hook from a light-heavyweight. The stock was a bit too short, and when a double guns stock is too short, they smack you in the face. Well, I was dumb enough to pull the trigger a second time. I had a thundering headache for the remainder of the day. I had a small cut on the inside of my right middle finger from the trigger guard which hit with enough force to draw a little blood. That gun was sold within a week of that outing. Since then, I'm more than happy to stick with my pump guns, or like these days; I have an old 20 bore Remington Model 11 that does double duty as a defense gun.

KevinGibson & everyone,

Until it was stolen in a house burglary in 2012, I had a "cut down" 12guage Double-barrel, that my guys in CID called "THE INTIMIDATOR" = When you got out of the car with that weapon, suddenly "everyone wants to go to jail", as most every crook has an idea of what a sawed-off 12guage will do at close range.

yours, sw

Don't waste your time, how many Texicans do you know that don't know how to spell Houston? That with the obvious ESL and Pakistani IP address makes me think I smell a rat.
