    I spent about $175 making an OK coach gun into one smooth operating machine.
    I have one as well, that I like and keep in the BR, along with handguns.

    Just curious what you had "reworked"?

    Double barrel shotguns are nice to have. I have one with no external hammers that I bought from my uncle about 7 years ago. I never shot it before so therefore I just have it because I always wanted one. For HD nothing beats the sound of putting a round into the chamber from a pump shotgun.

    It's now at the gun smith.

    If it comes back from the gun smith shooting with 100% reliability, it'll be number one again.

    I hate it when a brand new weapon malfunctions right out of the box. Ugh.
    I recently put an M5 in layaway. This makes me think I may need to re-evaluate my decision. Do you happen to know what was causing the problem?

    There are modern weapons way better suited for HD. But you are on the right track selecting a 12 ga shotgun - just need to update the platform
    Not all coach gun require this...

    Stoeger Coach Gun, 12-Gauge, 20-Gauge, .410, with 3� Chamber

    I have one in 12 ga...
