I can't run 10 straight with my 870... :cry: So, if you are an enemy the size and speed of a clay pidgeon, you should be safe if there are enough of you... :lol:

========================

.45 Colts that I loaded up had little recoil, but I've got to work up to a load for them. No problems there.

2.5" .410 shells weren't much either.

3" .410 shells were a handful. Need to wear gloves to shoot them or the trigger "housing" bites my finger.

I flipped an empty 2 liter pop bottle on the ground at the range, as far as I could flip it, and hit it with the shotshells.

The trigger pull is remarkable. The safety operation is quite annoying.

=========================
=========================

Update 1 January 2006

Haven't tried to pattern it yet. Loaded up some light .45LC. Shot some of them, and some shotshells.

I was shooting shotshells, and was expecting 2.5" with 7.5 shot. NOT the 3" with 5 000 Buck that got mixed in with them. I felt that one more... :lol:

I saw one of these at a gun show a year or 2 back. Was a side by side version of the same gun with 16 1/2 inch barrel and a folding stock. Wish I had bought it for $125 bucks. good for snakes (Mr. Cotton mouth).

Yours looks to be a single barrel. Just to humor us, what did you pay for it?

It is a double barrel SxS... 3 7/8" barrel.

The pawn shop was having a 25% off everything sale, so it was $99. A couple weeks later, I went into a gun store and saw one for $149. I need to get over to the other pawn shop and check on the long barrel one to see how much it is for comparison.

How is the pictured gun legal? Not saying it shouldn't be, but I thought handguns firing shotgun ammo were banned. Is the .410 an exception?

It's legal because it's chambered for .45 Long Colt. It also has .45LC stamped on the side of the barrel. It's just that the chamber has been lengthened to take .410s. I think that as part of that process, .410s are unreliable. .45s go off every time, but .410s don't always go off.

It also has a rifled barrel, making it a pistol.

Not sure if the Bond Arms derringer or the Thompson Contender have the same problem, but don't think they do...
