    12 G shotgun, semi. pump, UO, SxS

    I think I'm on the hunt for a cheap, knockabout, loaner shotty. Something to take out bushbashing, when wet, on motorbike, lend to a mate/learner type thing.
    Condition doesnt worry me, but needs to be reliable, safe, and suitable for steel. Havent thought to much about budget, but cheap would be good.
    In no hurry, as the utes in hospital and haven't heard the results of examination, nor the cost yet, so may not be buying anything in the near future.
    Basically I'm just seeing whats out there at the moment

    I'll keep you in mind. Just waiting for the ute to be discharged from hospital, and depending on how much it damages my wallet, will make a decision then.

    Does it have to be a Semi, a Pump, an Under-Over AND a SxS all at once?

    UO and SxS can just depend on which way you hold it I guess..

    Thanks for the offer, but I'll decline at this stage. Wanting to have one in the safe for "that moment" when we decide to just head out

    No not really. All singles I've shot boot like a mule, not the thing I want to give a new hunter/ learner. I want to encourage, not put off. Could get light loads, but not much about in steel
