I've always wanted a side by side shotgun. Even as a little boy I dreamed of having one. They have always been too expensive, until now. I own and have extensively used pumps and semi-autos. To put it bluntly, I hate them. More often then not I leave them home in favor of my old break action single shot. Break action guns are small, light, and quick. The moment I picked up this Stoeger double I knew it had to be mine. It just "fit" unlike any shotgun I have ever held, except my old single shot.

This particular gun does have a quirk that caused me to miss two squirrels last week. The receiver needs to be shut very hard or the triggers will not pull. I was very frustrated when it would not fire, until I figured this out. After I learned how to use it I killed three squirrels in as many shots. These were made from a distance of 15 to 40 yards, a spread that would have been difficult with a single barrel shotgun.
