Re: Rifle safeties; how "safe"??

When test firing old shotguns was a part of my job we always started with the safety on and pulling the triggers on loaded chambers to see if the safety worked . It made me flinch every time, even though the guns only occasionally went off.... :shock: I have never trusted safeties 100% since. Often ...

Re: Winchester Model 12 vs 1200

Interesting story Molasses.

Sadly too few gun totting females are seen in the hunting field, they are usually good shots and certainly brighten up a male dominated day.

Re: Winchester Model 12 vs 1200

The Winchester 1200 is not a bad shotgun, if the Winchester model 12 had never existed the 1200 would probably have been hailed a great shotgun but it will always be in the model 12s shadow.

As far as I know yes the military still use pump action shotguns and semi auto shotguns.
