I started with a Rossi 12 gauge single shot. Model: S121280BS Caliber: 12 GAUGE Choke: Modified Capacity: Single Shot
Barrel Length: 28″ Action: Break Open Finish: Blue Finish
UPC: 6-62205-97985-9 Grips Stock: Black Synthetic MSRP: $170.97
Weight: 5.25 LBS… I walked away from the Dunhams store with a new one for $170.00 after tax and registration. Some simple mods are in the works for this one. It does shoot well.
I wish I had been able to do more video, but the tripod took a shit and I had to post what I had. I had but 1 Wax Slug prepared for the 12. The video shows the proof of it. To make it, I used gulf wax canning wax and heated a little in a cup over low heat. I took the shot out of the shell and let it heating the wax before spooning the wax and BB’s back into the shell and sealing with a little more wax. It is a devastation load. I’ll prove that soon enough in another video, shooting water melons or such. I have 1 half box of .410 3 inch loaded already and will make about a half box of 12 gauge 2 3/4’s ( black powder, daisy loads ). In the vid you see a place where most of the targets went down after being shot with a 9 pellet buck load. That was shot into 6 phone books taped together. I was impressed with that loading right there. Dunham’s got that in a box of five for $4.30 something. The rest of the shooting of the Rossi was with Target loads/cheap loads.
In closing, I think the 21st Century Longhunter Shotgun is a suitable undertaking. My Pap would have loved it. I went down the cheap road and am pleased with the result. I would have went with a NEF or a H&R had one been availble at a comparable price. I already have totally disassemble the gun once and am confident that I can keep this one operational for the rest of my days. The next post will be about flea market finds. So adios and hasty bananas till next time. Dragon out.
