    Every November for years and years we drag out ALL the shotguns and shoot trap with every one of them. This tradition has spread to the inlaws family as well.
    You will surprise your self and others on how well your sawed off and rarely used shotguns can really shoot if you let them. It's good for grins and giggles at times.

    12 steps for 12 guage! Love it.

    1.We admitted we were powerless over shotguns—that our gun safes had become unmanageable.
    2.Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity--and we think it might jst be called 10 guage.
    ...
    8.Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
    9.Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
    ...
    11.Sought through way to much time on DC.com to improve our conscious contact with our arsenal, praying for more ammo.
    12.Having had a spiritual awakening every time we visit the range, we tried to carry this message to antis, and to practice the four laws of proper gun control.

    Shotguns are fun and addicting.

    Oh no... your defensive shotguns are plenty of fun shooting clays. You will learn a lot from doing so too. They might not be a wise choice for serious competition, but for fun day... why not?

    I have no problem admitting I'm addicted to shotguns. They always have been my favorite. Probably because I'm an avid upland hunter. I prefer blue and walnut over anything, and don't really care for the Saiga's or things like that.
    My defensive shot gun is a 870 P, nice blue and solid walnut. My clays gun is a Beretta 391 Teknys and I have a host of field guns. ( I prefer autos) I just picked up a sweet little 720, havent got out to shoot it yet. I will soon.

    Be careful with this illness. Addiction can move to infection & then rapidly to, uh...(danged) intervention. Just ask my wife everytime the word Krieghoff or Perazzi pass my lips!

    I understand. Been shooting and modifying an H&R for Turkey Shoots. Got lots of rules and love trying to stay within the parameters and still kick butt. It's beginning to look like you can make an H&R single shot shoot at a Turkey Shoot like a Browning BT99 for way less money.

    Heh heh. You forgot Step 10, though: Continued to take personal inventory of our collection, and when we needed another firearm promptly admitted it. (And then hightailed it to the LGS.)

    12 Steps . . . 12 gauge . . . Coincidence ??

    I don't think so.
