    I bet few have owned a "magic" shotgun. One Christmas, I bought my wife a Model 42 Winchester .410, thinking she would enjoy shooting again. Mistake.

    It turned into a china cabinet.

    A couple of 686's in Sporting and an 828U in Sporting each ran about $2800 NIB. I think the 828U has came down some, I got it fresh off the line. But my three favorites are my Charles Daley O/U (BC Miroku) my Citori 325 and my 870TC.

    it might be a difficult to post pictures of shotguns that a person hasn't owned in over twenty years.

    Well I purchased a Classic Double 101 34"-30"trap combo. I think I it was $1,800 in 1990. And many years later found a Browning grade one undersingle for $2,100. 20140627_073258.jpg
    The Browning was one of the 34 that where built the first year of production.

    Most expensive.....I think the Spartan (Remington) O&U....about $425.
    Then a Mossberg 500...from the local Walmart....I'm thinking about $225
    And of course the single shot Stoeger.....about $125 at the LGS. Break action with a finger break behind the trigger....not a bad looking gun for the $$$....but lightweight and kicks fairly hard even with low brass bird shot.
    So my three shotguns are totally worth less than most guns.....but I like them anyway.
