Can't say the idea sound good to me. I would never consider doing anything like that to my BT-99. Being boiled in oil for doing such a thing is not even sufficient punishment - skinned alive, maybe.
The thought of being out in the 'field' hunting with a shotgun that does not have a safety doesn't appeal to me either. Supposed you could carry it 'open' and close it to take a shot but that sound rather cumbersome....
