I have a H&R 12 guage single shot...I have been tempted many times to buy an auto or pump. I have killed more game than most with it, It's light to carrie all day,,very accurate..and evens the field. (give the pat a chance).. It cost $78.00 at walmart 14 yrs ago. 4 deer, 7 pat, 7 turkeys, countless squirls, 2 ducks, 2 rabbits...not bad for 78 dollars..I never wished I had a pump or auto,,,it was akways enough.
