I want the guns to shoot at hare at my farm, and to kill trespassers.

I did some research and was b between the S&W 686 and the Ruger GP 100. I went to the gun shop today and they didn't have any. Guy sold me a S&W 65-3. Not too happy with the gun TBH.

i have a smith 586 (blued version of the 686) with a trigger job and i gotta say its one of my all time favorite pistols. One ill never get rid of.

Never owned an L-frame Smith (like the 586,686, 581, 681, etc.). I'm sure I'd like one, though, one of the older ones, anyway. I do have a passel of K- and N-frames, however.

This thread got me thinking about a good semi-auto shotgun.

Found this one and ordered it tonight.

Will be interesting to see how well it works.

Pretty much have all my bases covered.

If I could find a high quality semi-auto shotgun with a large capacity magazine, I'd be tempted, but there isn't much else that I want to buy.

It's crap!
You want the Remington versa max tactical competition shotgun. Barely any recoil holds 12 and can hit anything.
If not that try a MKA-1919 and get it tricked out by tooth and nail armory.
I would recommend the benelli m-2 or m-4 but I own the other two and love them.

I absolutely love the L frame. mine is a no dash from 1983.

Agree, Remington Quality has taken a steep nose dove in recent years. Duck hunters around here pretty much all use Benelli's because in bad weather everything else eventually becomes a single shot. My Benelli Super Sport is the original model and has HK in red on the receiver. The Benelli Ultralight is my go to gun most of the time in the uplands but I prefer 2 pipes most of the time. For self defense prefer the Ithaca 37 because I grew up with them and can operate them as fast as most can an auto.

 

Recently picked up a used Beretta Ultralight (they don't make them any more). Had the ugly peanut butter finish on it

 

 

Stripped it down and refinished with Waterlox and BenMatte. Picked up a full set of Beretta Victory chokes from Midway on sale. Cut stock keeping pitch and added a KickEZZ pad and front site. All told have $300 less in it than Cabelas sells them for.

 

Wood isn't much better than fence post grade however. Keep checking to see what Rich Cole has but nothing has caught my fancy yet. Would like to come close to my custom combo from Joel Etchen with EELL wood someday.

Sweet refinishing job, looks 100% better.
