Rossi Model 121280BS 12 ga.

I just picked this up 2 days ago as my first shotgun.
It was only $100 used.
Anybody else own this weapon?
Opinions, stories, accuracy (lol)?

Still havent had a chance to go shoot her.
I'm itching.
I have 100 rds waiting for her. :P

I finally got to take her out.

It's really not a bad gun.
Recoil isnt terrible... even for a 12 ga.
I had some fun with her.
So if you come across this shotgun for around the same price. grab it.
Again, it is a single shot break action.
But I love her. lol

I have the same gun in 20 gauge, ant it's a fun lead thrower for the price. Popped 3 doves in about 45 minutes with it on the evening of this last hunting season's opener. I've moved on to a Mossberg 500 for bird hunting, but the Rossi still goes on ever range trip. Gonna be my son's first full size bird gun when he gets big enough (he's only 7 and still a little guy). Being a very light synthetic stock gun, the recoil is vicious with slugs (which I love) and good out to about 30-40 yards with slugs. If yours has a modified choke like mine, throw some cheap Winchester or Remington slugs (cheapest at Walmart) down range. You will love 'em if you are a recoil junkie like me. Dont waste your money on higher end rifled slugs as your gun is a smooth bore- wont make any differece in accuracy. Again, great gun for the money.

I'll keep that in mind for the recoil!!
You just got me really really excited to put slugs through it.

Cool. Just make sure your gun has at least a modified choke. If your gun has a full choke, DO NOT run slugs through it.

The gun has a "fixed" choke already, meaning you cannot change the choke size. The three basic choke sizes are cylinder, modified, and full. Check out this link for more info and scroll down to "Common Chokes & Bores".
