Honestly if it had a trigger for each barrels I might see a bit more practicality, otherwise I'm just seeing an automatic shotgun with only 2 rounds. I'm easily impressed how about a pump double barrel? Two Ithaca Model 37s would work.
A guy on the high road did a double pump (so to speak) with a left and right hand 870 - he called it his 1760 project. Very very cool.
I too would prefer to see a double trigger version of this. I never did understand the point of a single trigger. Two triggers are just as fast realistically, and you get the instant choice of type of load you're sending downrange.
you could have the novelty of having your very own, one of a kind twisted grass fingerring, made by GunKid himself, for a mere $50, too. Be considerably more portable, great conversation pc, save you a lot of $.
I have always liked the traditional and graceful lines of a side by side. Add good wood and good finish and it can become a work of art. A Picatinny rail on a side by side is about as aesthetically appealing to me as a fat chic with a bare midriff and both seem equally practical.
True ejectors. They need real ejectors like a H&R single shot. Snap open the action and both empties fly, flip in two more rounds from the off hand's fingers (like elephant hunters do with their rifle ammo) and you are back in action.
And maybe some sort of grip safety and firing pin lock setup so if you drop the gun it won't go off.
Doesn't Stoeger also have a "campers" OU 12 guage shottie????I always felt that an O/U 12 gauge,3 inch chamber;20 inch barrells and practical ( big dot or ghost ring) sights would make a very useful "utility " smoothbore for those who reside in anti -RKBA states.
I now have 3 Stoeger Coach Guns that my wife & I use for Cowboy Action matches. The chambers have been polished for faster extraction of shells and I cut back the coil spring to allow the action to open easier. They are not defensive firearms but can be used as last ditch firearms to arm someone in your group that has minimal knowledge and experience with firearms.
