Ugly Gun Sunday

You know, a break open single shot shotgun has it's purpose. Such firearms have long stood behind the door of the impoverished person, protecting their home, and not infrequently harvesting a squirrel or a rabbit for the stew pot. There is nothing ugly about that, in fact, it's an honorable, thankless job for a firearm.

What is ugly is this. If pistol grip M-4 stocks were as great as many folks believe, they would be on the shottys of trap shooters everywhere. There is, however, a remarkable absence of the collapsable stock on the shotguns of professional shooters. Perhaps this is because the stock is a compromise for use with or without body armor. Still, it looks uber tackticool, as does the M-4 heat sheilding forend and fiber optic sights grafted onto this one shot marvel.

But hey........black plastic is not tackticool any longer, it's commonplace. So after attaching a bunch of dischordant crap onto a decent shotgun, somebody painted it up to ressemble a coral snake, scales and all. Red on yellow? Kill that fellow. Where's my hoe?

That looks (to me) more like one of NEF's Handi-Rifles than their shotguns.

Yeah, my single-shot Stevens isn't going to win any beauty contest, but I'd rather [CENSORED] Rosie O'Donnell's [CENSORED] than treat my shotgun like that.

Also, you can no longer reach the latch to open the action without moving you had from the pistol grip. Makes the single shot even slower to reload.
