Thanks for the advise. Had surgery on my arm a while back and it will be 3-4 weeks before I get to shoot it. Gives me something to look forward to.

Bringing this thread back from the dead. The last comment on trigger issues, any new developments or comments from anyone? I have thought about this for HD with a Glock .40 as backup.

I wouldn't trust a stoeger for self defense. I see a LOT of them have issues resetting on recoil. Breaking firing pins. Not firing second barrel out of no where on cas events. They are very popular in cas cuz they are cheap and fairly easy to work on.

Self defense shotgun get a mossberg 590 or 500. I wouldn't even trust my cz doubles for sd use.

my stoeger coach gun goes bang every time. its been a dependable firearm so far......this is of course just my personal experience, but i would have no problem trusting it for SD.

You will see very few single trigger Stoegers in CAS. Because the 2 trigger guns work pretty well.

Majority i see are single trigger models.

Both my SxS are double trigger. My cas gun is double hammer double trigger. Neither are stoegers however.

All i can say is what ive seen and ill stick with the cz guns...

Mine is a double trigger. I purposely stayed away from the single trigger. Also stayed away from the snaggers/hammers.

They will put 'rails' on anything these days!
I like the old 'twice bbl carbines' but I will stick with my Mossy's and Remington pumps for SD.

mine is a double trigger version also. 2 barrels = 2 triggers.....duh!

its been a good gun, several years owned and several hundred shells though...i haven't "torture tested" it.....but i pay too dang much money for my guns to torture them...........

guns should be loved dearly, not "tortured!"

any shotgun is going to be the best choice for HD imo. until we get laser guns or something, i think they best fill the role for HD (at least for me ).

i can't think of many people who would look down the two barrels of DBL shotgun and think "he's only got two shots, i can take him....."

shotguns put real fear into people.....for good reason...they are nasty!
