Some of the old Winchester model 12 shotguns will slam fire also. We used to have a lot of fun with my great uncle's old model 12 doing that, with smokeless loads.

Is a lot of guns that will. The Ithaca 37 and some of the old Stevens will.

I think a lot of folks on TFL forget that guns can be used for pure fun. Looks like you were being safe and you had a smile on your face.

Looks like a good time.

Just for the hell of it I used to shoot doubles with my Father's 1950s era Model 37.

I got to where I could break both of them about 75% of the time.

In CAS slam firing the shotgun portion of the stage is NORMAL.
So is the BIG FAT GRIN!

I load up my Shot gun shells with fiber wads and clean up is no worse than with smokeless.

8 stages at 4 plus shots per stage is over 30 shots and clean up is no problem.
Plastic wads and Black Powder is what I think makes the mess everyone is always repeating.

Thanks for the video and you just go on abusing that shotgun!!!!! LOL.

We are going to do some 3 gun at my range and since the semi's are limited to 5+1 rounds up in Canada I plan on using this one 6+1 with my own loads. I'll only use BP a few times I promise

Many years ago, my brother's father-in-law slipped a blackpowder round into my brother's shotgun while we where shooting sporting clays. My brother did not know it until he squeezed the trigger.
We thought is was hilarious, he was not so amused at the time

Hilarious. And imagine that, he wasn't amused. Hmm. If that had been one of my guns the fellow who did it would soon get a very 'hilarious' response from the butt.

Nobody ever fools with one of my guns in any way without my permission, and that goes triple for loading it without my knowledge or permission.

Unbelievable.

You want to get a really incredulous look load a .45 ACP with bp and slip it into a friends 1911 mag and watch the fun when he sets it off.
