    Love the boyhood story! Sarge, if I may, please remember that those locking mechanisms are made of hardened steel which also makes them brittle. Beyond that, if you keep that firearm for a long time and want to pass it on to your grandchildren, the pivot pins will wear – depending on how much usage your gun gets. NEVER slam that double-gun closed! Grasp the gun firmly and slowly compress it closed. This will serve the locks, the pivot pins and will reduce the rare chance of a misfire because of an aggressive closure. I love my double-guns for upland hunting. Wouldn’t be seen in the field with a pump or semi "upland hunting". But that’s just me. Thank you for the vid on a gun I once owned and sold VERY cheap to a young lad that had eyes like saucers when I sold it to him for a song (knowing he was just married and starting a family therefore this gun would otherwise be WELL outside of his budget). He still uses it to this day – just like the day I bought it circa 1979. They are GREAT guns for the price!! I don’t mess with the trigger selectors like you said. Furthermore, I don’t mess much with the chokes either but that’s just me/my applications. Folk need to spend their time becoming proficient rather than expecting technology to transition them into good shot-gunners. Here’s a tell-tale sign of a novice or inefficient shotgunner: Spends too much time looking down the barrel and fiddlin’ with chokes and/or uses HOT or 3" rounds. …WARNING!!! My 28 gauge SxS with 2 3/4 inch, 3/4 ounce, # 6s STONES wild pheasants. Need I say more?
    Thanks again Sarge!

    That’s a mighty fine shotgun you have there, SGT 1911! I’m sure it will serve you & Quig well out in the field. Nice story from your boyhood, too.

    What a great story from your childhood! My mother or my Grandfather would take myself and my younger brother out hunting and shooting. Those were great times.

    Good comments SGT. I have used 12 gauge for hunting.
    Also in my career I was issued 12 gauged short barrel s/g. Most informative
    video I have seen on a field
    grade s/g. Thanks SGT!👍😊🇺🇸

    That’s a very nice shotgun, I’ve checked them out and thought they were to nice to hunt with, but no they are made to hunt with and premium quality and that’s what the Wayne likes, I just love guns. And SGT is a great friend to know.
