Is there anything I shouldn't shoot out of this gun, i.e. 000 buck, copper plated lead shot, slugs? I'd planned on shooting 2 3/4 and 3 in stuff. I guess I mean, besides the obvious(silverware, different gauges), is there anything other than steel shot I shouldn't shoot?

IMO, you can use it just like any other gun. It is a sturdy economy gun that will shoot anything any other gun will shoot safely.

mine is improved cyl choke right bbl and modified left, so slugs can be used. but they are meant for shot I'm thinking.

I've been shooting an IGA Stoeger coachgun in 12Ga. for YEARS!

it shoots EVERYTHING I stuff in it, 3", 2.75", home loads... Hevi-Shot, Steel shot... EVERYTHING...

one thing I don't do is slugs... slugs CAN (but don't always) cause the barrels to seperate from the center rib on double guns...
