    COACH GUN QUESTION

    Well I finally decided to get a coach gun - home defense and maybe some cowboy action shooting.

    I was looking at a Stoeger. But I did not get one.

    I remember (maybe it was a senior moment) around Thanksgiving Big-5 had one in 12 gauge for $279/$239 sale. I wanted a 20 gauge.

    I went into one of our LGS and they had a dozen of them in 20 gauge. The price $399.99.

    Were they always this expensive? Or have they just recently skyrocketed in cost?

    I used to see them around 350 OTD. Love the Stoeger look and feel. I just decided on a Winchester 1300 12ga. pump instead.

        Mother bought one for $350 OTD at GM. Price doesn't seem too outrageous in this market. The add u saw must have been a solid deal. Cheapest I have seen is $275 a while ago at a show. Didn't look to see if new or used?

          If it were me in the market I would hit the pawn shops, and find a cheap old hammerless side by side for around a hundred, take it home, put the ruler on it, and whack it off at 18.5 inches, grab some fiberglass steel wool, and smooth the stocks out and a little stain and wax, and presto you got a nice one on the cheap. I had an old Stevens double about 30 years ago worth about 60 bucks back then, that is what I did to it, and took it to the next gun show and sold it for 160.00 back then, three times what that old cheap double would have brought back then, because it was converted to a good looking coach gun. Easy to do, only took about and hour.

            My Colt coach gun from 1880 or so has 20 inch barrels same as my Rossi . That 1 1/2" is a little more FPS and a little extra if barrels get damaged. Just tell them you following the VP instructions to get a double shot gun so wife can fire in air off porch and scare away the bad guys. That man a true liberal idiot of the max level.

              Interstate/norinco/cia/ ica/whatever other brands they sell the china made ones have been ranging from $275-$350 and were about $50 cheaper prior to November 2012. Strogers have been $350-400 for quite some time now.

                Stoeger website has them listed with an MSRP of 449 -499 depending on which model you choose. I seem to remember paying around 350 for mine, but that was 12 years ago! I love mine and plan to go get a matching one in 12g too.

                    Yes, according to the top gun expert in the administration, get a double barrel shotgun. Fire BOTH barrels in the air to scare them. Then you have......an empty gun. Then scream for your next door neighbor to come bail your a$$ out with his AR.

                      Those shots are to wake up the Secret Service or stop there party. Its a time to go to work call. The arrest the VP or his wife for dicharging a firearm and any other laws they have broken of Washington DC.
