You could but because of the simple bead front sight your range will be very limited. To get a shotgun with a standard bird barrel to reach out a bit further you will have to either get a set of clip on sights or a scope and mount. Just save up a few more bucks and buy a remington or mossberg combo gun.
In the long run you will save money. With add on sights or a scope you will have to resight the gun whenever you switch from bird mode to hog mode and lead free slug loads aren't cheap. If you get a gun with two barrels you just swap them and you're ready to hunt. Scince you live in the bay area I assume you'll be hunting in the lead free zone so you wont be able to shoot the old style lead rifled slugs which are meant to be used with a smooth bore. A rifled barrel will work alot better for the lead free sabot ammo you'll have to use over there.
Sharps, the rifle that made the west safe for Winchester!
Real tractors have two cylinders and hand clutches.
My rifle is mine, it isn't for sale, and I only give guns to people that I really like.
