We went to Wal-Mart yesterday, the Little Woman had an eye appointment in the Vision Center.
I had some time to wander, and ran across their gun counter which was exciting since our Wal-Mart doesn't sell guns.
Nobody was around, so I stood around looking (as well as I could fro that distance) at the long guns.
They had Marlins, Rugers, Remingtons, Savages, and then.....there it was.....a price tag that said $99 :shock:
"Holy Crap, it's a Hatfield!".....I'd heard about those, even watched a few YouTube videos on them..I probably shouldn't even think about it.....but the guy showed up and said "Would you like to look at something?"
"No....yes....no.....maybe that Hatfield shotgun..maybe.....no...yes, that one...."
It looked good...felt like at least $99 in my hands.......it was a 12 gauge...
"Do you have it in other calibers?"
"Yes sir, we have it in 12, 20 and .410"
"You dick......I'll take one in 20"
"Yes sir, I'll need your drivers license and CCW, step over here and dill out the form"
I filled out the form, he did his thing, then he said "I'll go get your gun"
"Thanks Jerk Face, Now I'll have to walk home"
I can't believe their pushy salesmanship and the way they forced me to buy yet another gun I almost don't need.
I think I'll write to corporate and protest their unethical practices against weak willed people such as myself.
He of course called his manager to double check the 4473 and escort me out of the building (after I paid for the gun and everything in my cart)
Worked pretty good, The Little Woman didn't get to see it or hear abut it until we were safely on the road.
:worthless:
I'll try to post up some pictures after while.

I have seen those as well and have thought long and hard about getting one several times at our local wally world. But each and every time I was strong enough to resisst the temptations to purchase one. I always made the "strong arguement" that the cabnet is already too full and that I dont need another shotgun. Besides that, I couldnt make up my mind if I wanted a 12 or 410.

I split the difference and went with the 20 :mrgreen:
You need one....or both....or all 3........after all, it's only $99 :whistle:
If your cabinet is too full, you can always do what I do.....get another cabinet.

:good one:
I hear you on that! You bring up a good point on the 20. I have a few 12s and a few 410s but no 20. So, maybe it is time I "bite" the bullet and get something different. :thinkin: You "enabler" you! :lol:

I've always hunted with 12 gauge and kept a .410 or 2 around for fun, and I used to scorn the 20 gauge.
The last few years, I've been hunting with a Remington 1100 20 gauge and my 12 gauge Wingmaster has stayed home.
A 20 will kill a pheasant just as dead as the 12, and it's a lot gentler on old people.

This guy is sure a whiner about that shotgun:

http://www.thegoodgun.com/2016/08/07/ha ... cial-hell/

But I don't think he is very bright...
Run slugs thru a light shotgun - or even trap rounds - Light means hevy recoil!!!

Looks like you were pretty smart to get the 20 gauge!!! :great:

Yep, that guy sure sounds like a whiner to me. Maybe he should stick to playing shooting games on his pc or video console! :lol:

I shot this thing, and it's not bad at all.
I'm not sure what happened, but the first 3 times I pulled the trigger, nothing happened, I'm thinking maybe the crossbolt safety was partially engaged?
I had 3 shells with me and the next 2 fired fine.

I DO know for a fact that a really light 12 gauge does kick like a mule!!!

So a 20 gauge was probably the best thing to do...

When you hit a certain age, 20 gauge makes sense :mrgreen:

As far as felt recoil, 20 gauges always seem like they kick just as much as 12 gauges... maybe it was the gun??????

if it doesn't fit, it will hit.
I have a little 20 gauge NF singleshot, a youth model.
That little sonuvagun slapped me in the face and shoulder the first time I shot it.
The second shot was almost as bad.
I took it in the house and told The Little Woman "Well this thing sucks"
That night, I kind of fiddled with it, just shouldering it and playing around, and I noticed I was pulling the hammer back as I was bringing it up, putting my finger on the trigger as it hit my shoulder, and that little sucker would go off.
The problem was, it was going off a fraction of a second before I got it snuggled up.
I grabbed some shells, went outside and loaded it up.
I didn't cock it until I had it up, and kept my finger off the trigger (duh :groan: ) until I was ready to shoot.
It felt a lot better.
I blame stupidity and a short LOP for the beating I took.
This gun with it's long stock and 27# trigger doesn't have that issue.
