    What a waste of good bachelorhood! (Then again, I do take advantage when it comes to the free time. Never lost a single day of fishing or hunting to some family function at the in-laws'!)
    Yeah rub it in.

        Lord no! You need at least one with a 28-inch barrel. That 14-inch could get you in trouble without the proper paperwork.

        Is a shotgun a firearm subject to the NFA? | Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (

        The NFA defines shotgun, in part, as a weapon designed or redesigned, made or remade, and intended to be fired from the shoulder and designed or redesigned and made or remade to use the energy of the explosive in a fixed shotgun shell to fire through a smooth bore either a number of projectiles (ball shot) or a single projectile for each pull of the trigger.

        A shotgun is a firearm subject to the NFA if the shotgun has a barrel or barrels of less than 18 inches in length. A weapon made from a shotgun is also a firearm subject to the NFA if the weapon as modified has an overall length of less than 26 inches or a barrel or barrels of less than 18 inches in length.

        [26 U.S.C. §§ 5845(a)(1)-(2), (d)]

            I've got 3 Model 12s. Two twelve gauge and a sixteen. An Ithaca that has a 18 in buck barrel that travels to Ak every year and a Ruger over and under in Twenty gauge. I lust for a 20 gauge model 12 but I'm 70 and won't use it,so I won't buy one, but I do love them!.

              I have old stuff not considered keepsakes. So I won't list them.
