Mostly I like it because it gives the shooter options, like lights and what not with the reliability of a double barrel. It does look kind of stupid but as long as it works right.

no reason to justify your "like" of something. if you like it, you like it. end of story...

Above is what I have. Thanks for your opinions. I do like the simplicity of it and the compact size. When I hold it, I naturally want to put my index finger on the outer trigger and my middle finger on the inner trigger. Is this the correct way or are you supposed to use only your index finger?

persoanlly, i would use one trigger finger....unless you want shoot em both off at the same time

actually, every double barrel owner must admit to trying that at least once

i think the stoeger is a quality gun at the price point.

but....i was greatly disappointed, when i began to research, that there are no new american made coach shotgun? the place where the west was won & we have to buy western style guns from brazil, italy, china, etc?

surely there is a market....why won't an american firearms company make a sxs coachgun? i want to buy american made guns..i would pay a bit extra to do so.

why?

I love coach guns,don't have one but really want one!I think they would be a great home option,and even more reliable than a pump in the same way a revolver can be more reliable than a pistol since you can have more than one round already chambered at once,absolutely no chance for a misfeed.

Default I have the Stoeger Coach 12 Ga

I've had mine for about 3 years- NO issues. Everyone who has shot it LIKES it. A real quality shotgun for the money....I don't think it can be beat. The Russian Coach guns appear quite rough compared to the Stoeger. IMHO

Everytime Dunhams puts them on sale for $239, I really get the itch to buy one. Haven't got one yet but man are they cool. I'll probably get one in 12 gauge but the light little .410 is a neat little gun.

nice pic! i agree as well. i had a chance to handle some chinese and russian made coach guns & just from holding them, the quality didn't seem to be be even close to the stoeger's. they felt pretty cheap actually.

a friend i was shooting with feel in love with my stoeger coachgun supreme. he told me if i ever sell it, i better sell it to him.
