Wednesday Weapons – It always goes bang

I reckon I needed to show some diversity and go with a gun for hunting instead of always showing military weapons. This week we have the Remington 870. This gun always goes bang, which is handy for game shooting but also for self-defense. An 870 in a tactical configuration is quite handy for self defense or policing. Nothing stops an intruder better in his tracks than the sound of the slide racking except of course the loud bang and the 8 “double-nought” buck pellets slamming into his body. Only the ringing in your ears after the first warning shot is put into the ceiling after the perp is down prevents you from having a decent conversation with the constables. The conversation goes something like this. “Officer, I was in fear of my life, I fired a warning shot, but he said he as going to kill me and advanced, I then shot him, my wife was calling 111 at the time, but he attacked us so quickly, can I call my lawyer now please”. Another friend of mine recommends alternate? buck and solid loads, lets the bad-guys know they can’t hide behind walls.

A mate of mine has had problems with his auto-loaders, the main problem that they don’t go bang which is kind of missing the point. His Fabarm just doesn?t cycle (not surprising because the old joke about Italian Rifles was that they had never been fired and only dropped once), and his Remington 1100 G3 stopped firing. He took it to the gun store and took gunsmith three times pulling the trigger mechanism out to make it work again. What was interesting was he reckoned that when he went to the factory to learn about fixing Remington’s the quality control was horrible, and they seemed to have retained most of Cletus? extended family to run the quality control. The G3 works fine now, but it ?is amazing that Remington with such shithouse quality control can turn out a gun that ?always goes bang?.
