Info about "coach gun" needed

Postby rjroberts » Fri May 19, 2017 12:58 pm

I'm thinking about a 12ga. coach gun for basic HD. Decent brands? Is Norinco junk (rather not buy them anyway). How's Stoeger? Given the purpose, are extractors or ejectors better?

I'm trying to draw a balance between one cheap enough so I won't gripe when it disappears in an evidence locker, and good enough to rely on.

Thanks

+1 on the Stoeger, though for the price I'd go with a 500.

Thanks for the advice, guys. I just wanted something real simple, minimal mechanism. In my situation, actually a 1911 would serve but, I don't feel like having it disappear. If I see a Stoeger, I may pick it up.
