I have no preference when it comes to pump or double, I have and use both. I have a Mossberg 500, 2 Remington 870s, a stevens springfield 5100, and an Armadeo Rossi Overland. All of them get used.
Like a few others on here, I also have a soft spot for old bolt actions. The three I have are a Kessler model 30C, a Mossberg 185d, and 185k. The Mossbergs are my primary hunting shotguns, the Kessler is a secondary/occaisional use shotgun. It was bought due to it's ties to local history, It was made 2 miles from where I live during the 1950s. The company only made shotguns from 1950 to 1953 and then went bankrupt. The shotgun makes one heck of a conversation piece in the feild and at the gun club.
If I have to explain why I ride, you wouldn't understand. Explaining sex to an alien would be easier than explaining the feeling, one that boils all that is going on in your life down to what really matters each time you are in The Wind. All I can say is, Life is not Life without it.
