Call me old fashioned and nostalgic, but I still think short, side-by-side 12 Gauge Coach Guns are Cool as the other side of my pillow.
Now this is not to say that I think they are COOLER than a Pump 12 like a Remington 870 or Mossberg 590, but they are right up there!
Why? Like all shotty’s, they can handle all manner of threats: 2 legged, 4 legged or no legs at all (snakes) but they are compact and fast!
And before you start talking about ammo capacity, take it from me: If 2 rounds of 00 or #4 Buck Does not solve your problem, you seriously need to think about something belt fed because buddy, YOU GOT SERIOUS FUCKING ISSUES! 😄
The best gun for the money from this list IMO is the Stoeger.
FYI: I could give a shit about exposed hammers. I am not a cowboy shooter, I am just a cowboy who occasionally needs to shoot things.
