    Thought it looked kinda like a Remington...maybe an Ithaca...definitely not a Mossberg going by the safety button near the trigger.

    I'm guessing Ithaca also along with that hump back Browning, one of the classics.

    Don't see any markings on it so the owner will have to tell us.

    870 and savage 720. Many moons ago savage got the patents to reproduce the browning a5 with some minor changes.
    Or so I’ve heard anyway :p

    Either way, great guns for $100 a piece!

    That’s when you hold the trigger down and just rack it over and over again yeah?

    Cool feature!

    Yeah. It's no longer legal for companies to make guns that can do that, but the ones already made are legal.
    Get one before they vanish.
    Edit: Oh, and you can hunt doves and deer with it too. I did.:D

    Quite irrelevant to the subject - I never shot Mourning Dove, almost certainly because we saw them here only as mated pairs. Plus, their call in the evening seemed to mourn the passing of a loved one, and I joined them in the sentiment.

    But...not with a shotgun. It can ruin what little meat you harvest.

    My pellet gun during dove season here in Pennsylvania ...1 shot...1 kill !!

    We shot them by the dozens when I was growing up.
    My dad was tasked with trying to feed 5 hungry teenage boys that ate everything but the wallpaper off the walls and the bark off of the trees.
    We were told: "we're going dove hunting, gear up". (see previous Ithaca)
    We weren't asked. There were hundreds of birds on the wing.
    We dressed and cleaned every one for cooking to feed the hungry masses.
    And we ate every one. I probably still have a few lead #8 shot stored in my appendix:rolleyes:.
    If you missed too many birds, (wasting ammo) you were sentenced by my dad to 2 hours of practice with clay pigeons.
    I never went dove-hunting again after I left "The Rock".

    I do however today, remain 'certain-death' on the "Sporting Clays" courses:D.
    You know you really shot good when they take you discretely aside and tell you not to come back:lol:
    Especially when your weapon of choice is not the required $2600 'skeet gun' but an....:eek:evil black gun with a green-circle reticle sight:
    IMG_0023.jpg
    A modified choke and it swings on target much faster than a long barrel. The green circle shows where the shot is going. Deadly.
    Far better than the Ithaca.... but butt-ugly.

    A man has to know how to hunt and fish...skin and clean what he harvests...and cook it up.

    That's what my Grandfather and Father taught me to do...

    I can also sew...build a shelter from branches and leaves...perform 1st aid...and tell you what berries and mushrooms are either good or bad to eat.

    I quit hunting them for pretty much the same reason. Too many times I shot one of a pair, only to have the other circle back in what had to be an effort to find its fallen mate. Yeah, it bothered me. I do have a piece of a heart afterall.

    The other reason is there is really not that much meat on them. It takes a days limit to feed a pair of people and a bunch of rice to finish filling them up.

    This has been my personal philosophy for many years now.

    Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter.
    Ernest Hemingway, "

    If you enjoy hunting by all means go for it.
