Today I stopped in at one of my favorite shops. It is a second hand store that's been in business for over 40 years. Last week when I was there I noticed a Winchester Model 12 16 gauge with a solid rib. I looked at it today and saw that it was chambered for 2 3/4 shells. It locks up tight and the barrel is bright and shiny inside, so I bought it, filled out the paperwork, and it comes home in 10 days. Hot diggity dog!!!!
