    Let me preface the thread by explaining that I built this gun just to see if I could. It's an expression of my work, it's not my go to gun or practical in any way.

    I built this because I stumbled across a Stoeger Double Defense at a gun show and thought "What a lazy attempt at building a Tactical SXS Shotgun"

    So I got a 20" Stoeger coach gun at Dicks for $300 and added a few parts and created what I think Stoeger should have made.

    Here's a few of the parts I used

    I have to admit that it turned out far better then I anticipated. It's a fun gun to shoot. The pistol grip does help reduce recoil and increase my ability to control the gun and the collapsible stock brings the OAL down to 30" for storage.

    I like it, I think they actually have a line of tactical side by sides out there. I really do like this idea.

    You really did a nice job on that. I bet its a hoot to shoot!

    What I'm really impressed with though is your picture taking abilities, your first picture looks like it could be in an ad or a magazine!

    I just overexpose the image and then use a photo editing program to correct it.

    I could post a thread about this but I don't which forum to put it in.

    Don't try, I'd never get it anyway. I use cameras that come in aluminum foil

    How about one from one of those tri-barreled African guns with two twelve gauges on top and a 458 Win Mag underneath!
