I traded a .45 Ruger (P97DC) for a Baikal side-by-side coach gun and I completely love it. It has the hammer cock which looks really cool. This thing is fun to shoot. Right now it is my home defense gun, just sitting in the corner ready to go. I know it's a little on the cheap side, but, so what it works great and looks oh so cool. I actually used it this winter while shooting skeet-ha!
