    Question on a cheap Chinese shotgun

    So I have a chance to be a coach gun, cheap. I only want it as either a "throw in the backseat on the way to the 7/11 and don't mind if it gets stolen" or maybe tucked up beside my easy chair as a plan B.

    Anybody ever hear of them? And, yes, I'm fully aware of "you get what you pay for".

    Yep.

    They work. While not a "high end" shotgun, it will do what needs to be done.

    I would like to know myself. I've been wanting to get one of those to have when I am out doing tractor work for my parents. I hate carrying my my pump gun because it gets so dusty.

    You may want to look into a NEF (New England Firearms) 12 Gauge. They have a little one called the Pardner Pump. I just sold mine used for $100, but you can get them new for under $200. And yes, they're made in China.

    They work fine!

    I realise the concept of not minding if a cheap gun gets stolen,but the individual that gets robbed or killed might have a different opinion,I don't know how many guns get stolen out of vehicles but even cops have had guns stolen out of their personal and official cars,so even tho it's a truck/car gun it's important to make sure it's as secure as possible when not under our immediate control

    Touché! And it almost goes without saying. But, again, there will be a whole lot less tears if my hundred dollar Chinese Wonder vs. a Tactical Remington is missing from the back seat via a busted window.
