I bought my first shotty yesterday. It is a used Ithaca m37 Featherweight in 16ga.I got it for 150 bucks in 99% condition,and I love it. I can't stop taking out of my case. I can see that it's going to be an excellant upland gun. I have one question though, on the barrel there is a stamping that says ''PROOF TESTED' does this mean that it is ok to shoot steel loads though my barrel?
