Good for you Stanlie. But you are what you are, always looking for a put down. So, you get one back.

Serious mistake? I think not. Not in the slightest.

Enjoy.

Stan, if that’s a box of 3” shells, it’s cheating.

Doublegun's cast is the best political barometer in America. Altogether what they say over the years is superior diagnosis to the overpaid and overblown commentators, who only add to the phantasmagoria by swooping from their lofty heights to bayonet the wounded.

Someone who knows what they are doing could take a SKB 280 E 20 gauge with 28" barrels, and open up the chokes, and reduce that beavertail by half and have one helluva bird gun for just about anything for short money.

That is very true.

the longer barrels seem to go for a little bit more money in the 20 gauge, but still quite inexpensive. On the other hand, you could pick up a Merkel for about the same money, depending on which model you were looking at.

Oh the bluster is childs play?

Either that or you didn't have a chance to watch the last few minutes of Lloyd's link about the phantasm of the will of the people, and mercenary no goers back channeling the twisting of shanks in the values of America? I'm sorry, did you miss it, I suppose that is to be expected, or was that selective?

Maybe the model 8. I don't know of any other Merkel that's as cheap as the SKB's. The Merkel model 8 if one can find them is one helluva nice gun.

There are a couple model 8 on gunbroker right now I believe. But probably 12s.

They are considerably cheaper than an SKB 280 which would still need some doctoring to catch up to the Merkel. All you really get for that extra money would be ejectors and a really ugly single trigger.

I never knew these existed until a guy gave me one:

https://www.gunsinternational.com/guns-f...un_id=101459452

But, even if I had to bu,bu,bu,bu, BUY one, (with my money) I’d take that over any SKB. Correct number of triggers, to begin with. A touch of hand cut engraving, as well, and checkering and bluing as good as I’ve seen out of Europe.

Using the Francis Sell specification 20 gauge version to attempt to learn to shoot off the right shoulder. Recoil seems to bother me more on that shoulder then the left, so, a 20 gauge, for now. A porky 20 gauge, over 6 1/2lbs. But, it is a 3” gun.

This guys price is a bit optimistic, in my opinion.

The only thing wrong with the Merkels I’ve handled was they were all engraved with big assed birds being chased by equally big assed foxes, in what is kindly called “Teutonic style” engraving. Winston Churchill doesn’t work there.

Best,
Ted
