    H&R Tamer shotgun...


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Anyone have one of these, or have ever tried one out? I've got my eye on one, as a camp gun to keep around the tent. Looks like a handy little number, and the price cant be beat. I've used a H&R 20 gauge before (my cousin owns one of the single shot Pardner models), and it seemed like a decent gun. Just wanted you guys thoughts and opinions on this puppy.

    I have a single shot 12 gauge. It has the normal wood stock, and an 18" barrel... I call it "the mule" (for obvious reasons). Besides the recoil it is reliable and dependable. A 20 G would probably be a bit better with the recoil. Also, I noticed the "tamer" is a full choke. I really like that.
    Caution should be taken in reading posts as author is NOT young enough to know everything. Thanks.

    The Survivor is a model you may want to look into. The .410 gauge is nothing to scoff at. A .410 slug can leave a barrel with a 1800 fps velocity. We recommend the M6 Scout .22lr/.410 survival rifle/shotgun at the WLC and Marty has made a hybrid shotgun with the survivor stock and another .410 receiver/barrel that is stainless. The 20 gauge is nice but I like my 12 gauge for home defense and my .410 for woods use. In a true survival situation where food gathering is a concern, I'd take a .410 for small game. I don't see myself going for large game. If I were, I'd break out the 12 gauge with slugs. That is a whole other discussion or debate.

    Bottom line, you can't go wrong with the H&R lineup. Buy one, practice often and keep us posted!

    have the h and r 12 gauge. first time i shot it the breech would open up with each round. i figured it was supposed to do that. then sent it back and they had it for several months. when i got it back i took it out to pop off a few rounds. guess what, yep, the breech would pop open every time. sent it back and they kept it for 6 months. they lost it at the factory and wouldnt give me another. after constant hounding i got it back. shoots great and doesnt open. only took just about a year. other than shoddy workmanship and horrendous customer service i give them " 2 snaps up in a Z formation. FABULOUS!"

    Kev, how much to those M6 Scout's run? It's an ugly little cuss, but it could come in handy.

    PB,

    They are coming back in popularity and commanding a premium. Expect to pay upwards of $450+ for a stainless model. This price is much higher than the original MSRP. Even though they are ugly, you'll never break one. I absolutely love mine!
