Looking for a cheap but new (or as-new) 20G single shotgun for partridge hunting.
90% is putting along on the ATV and jumping off in mad-dash to get that bird.
Faulkners has an H&R 20G for $200 but it's a 26" barrel. My old Cooey that's duct-taped together has a 28" barrel. Will I really regret getting a barrel that's 2" shorter?
LeBaron's has the H&Rs for $173.95. See if Faulkner's will honour their "The Dealer that won't be undersold" pledge. They wouldn't for me. And don't let them do the "well you will have to pay shipping" thing. What does it cost just in gas, to drive to MacAdam and back? What about wear and tear? Also, make sure they have the gun in stock BEFORE you drive there. Mark down who you were talking to and the date and time. Have them physically go out back and check, their guns are NOT in a computer inventory so they need to physically look to be sure. If you end up driving there and "Sorry, it is out of stock", you will have wasted a lot of time, money and energy for nothing. If you decide to buy a used gun there, get them to have their licensed on staff gunsmith to at least function check it BEFORE you pay for it!!!! If you have to drive back, to either get it fixed or replaced any savings will be long gone.
