I have a 20 gauge Red Label with the stainless steel receiver and it's heavier than most 20 O/U's. With the 3" chamber you don't give up much to a 2 3/4" 12 gauge. I've killed a bunch of duck with mine. I think I'd marry this girl before cutting the stock. You just never know.

Good thinking Moe. It's hard to add the stock back. Maybe find another stock and cut it.

Hi Ed not sure if its a law in la county or what but they hold them for 30 days for a record check on the gun . ! example of what I am talking about is on Turners.com look under consignment guns and you will see that the tags on the guns say " dnd " then a date . the dnd stands for " don not dros " . I got there the day it went up . that was the 1st 30 , then the 10 day wait . thats 40 in my book . Moe , I notice that too . my beretta 12 ga is as light as it . the 20 has more feel of a youth gun to me . was going to rty that route too with a 12ga but she still does not like the recoil of Winchester 26 gram load . it doea not say 3,3 1/2 or max dram . But she did shoot better with the 20 with #8 field loads I tried to explain the shot size , shot patterns , powder charge ,..... but that all went out the window . I bought it for her because I just cant buy a pink 10/22 !!!!!!!! that she wants .Andy

DON'T CUT THE STOCK!!!! Find a GF with longer arms. Nice gun. The 20ga. O/U will have as much or more felt recoil as a gas operated 12 ga. using a similar hi base or low base type shell.

Maybe you would care to give us a scientific explanation of how they do that?

I got there the day it went up . that was the 1st 30 , then the 10 day wait . thats 40 in my book .

When an FFL purchases a gun they need to hold on to it for 30 days before drosing it so that the police can make sure that it hasn't been used in a crime. After that 30 day period the firearm can be sold. If the gun where consignment then you buy it and wait 10 days only. Thats what I was told when I worked for Turners. But I am not a lawyer nor do I pretend to be one this is just FYI. =)Nice gun hope you take down plenty of clay with it.
