I just joined up, and this is a great source of information. My dad has a JC Penney Foremost model 6620 12 guage single shot that I can use for the occasional deer or turkey hunting trip that I might go on later this year. If I enjoy it, I'll buy another gun later. Does anyone have any info on this gun? Thanks. Scott

Looked in Hoosier Gun Works cross reference listing and could not find a listing for a J.C. Penny 6620 (take another look at the marking) but did find several listings such as 6647 which converts to either a Savage 944 or a Springfield 944A both which single shot shotguns. Also did not find the name FOREMOST just J. C. Penny and a model number. Both are inexpensive utility grade shotguns that sell for about $75.

Thanks for the reply. I want try to use it as a deer gun for a couple of trips later on. I wonder if it would be safe to shoot slugs thru it or just stick with buckshot.

Haven't fired a shotgun in 20 years and never used one to hunt deer but since most single barrel shotguns are full choked, I think you'd be better off using buck shot.

Thanks for the info. I plan on taking it out in the next few weeks and fire it a few times and see what I can do with it.
