The new Ithaca doesn't make the 8 shot version anymore, and they have done away with the auto-sear...that's just no fun!

GunGeek,

I can PROBABLY find you an 8-shot W/O too much trouble. = Several of the smaller SD/PD in TX use them & often trade them in to GT Distributers.

yours, sw

I currently have 11 shotguns...my wife would shoot me with one if I bought another one.

To All,

IF I was again (unlikely given my age) an advisor to a foreign military/police force in Latin America, I would pick "Stainless Marine" shotguns. = The biggest problem that we had with any of the pump-guns was RUST, as the "rainy season" is LONG & it rains every afternoon there for 6+ months.

Btw, we had a FEW Winchester 1200 pumps in the inventory & those were "not liked" by our "range guys".
Otoh, the 50+ YO Winchester Model 12 riot-guns (with the metal HG & bayonet lug) WERE WELL-LIKED by all who got one.

yours, sw

To All,

Btw, IF you were going to buy a shotgun for a 60" tall, 92# female & who wears a size 1-2 dress, which shotgun would you pick for her?? = My 12 gauge shotguns are "too much gun" for her.
("A certain XYL" has informed me that, "I'm NOT staying home, twiddling my thumbs, while you go hunting.".)

yours, sw

GunGeek,

WOW!! Eleven shotguns!!! = Sounds like me & my "addiction" to Remington pump-rifles.

Btw, I'm still looking for a Model 760 in .257 Roberts (preferably one with the "corncob" foreend.)

yours, sw

GunGeek has 11 shotguns? I've cut back to where I'm down to 6 shotguns. I'd settle for 3; both of my riot pumps and a 20 gage double.

stand watie, I like 20s for anyone, male, female, large or small. I don't do ducks or geese and a 20 will do just fine if you can figure out how to hit a South Texas white wing dove.

SW - I agree with Sam; 20 bore is the way to go (male or female). With buckshot (#4 or larger) it is absolutely devastating out to 20m. Most 20 bores are sized for the cartridge so with heavy loads felt recoil ends up being pretty dimilar to a 12ga. If she can physically handle a 12ga, you might find more options for reduced loads which can bring recoil down below that of a 20ga even.

I did manage to find at least one maker of reduced recoil 20ga buckshot.

I fired 30 more fiocchi low recoil 00 buck and 10 sellier and bellot full power 00 buck. It fired all 40 rounds with no malfunctions. Although I did spray some lps 2 heavy duty lubricant into the action and worked it in good prior to firing any rounds. I don't know if that had anything to do with it or not. I guess it's possible.

Although, the ejection seemed very weak and it looked like it was barely kicking them out of the action.
