That looks awesome.
Well maybe but then again maybe not.




A couple folks asked for a full picture of my grouse gun.
Here is is.
Benlli M2, 20 Ga. 24" barrel. In my opinion, the ultimate grouse gun.
I can only guess the purpose of white over black Duct Tape on an orange shotgun is to differentiate it from other orange shotguns on gun racks at various shooting venues - skeet, sporting clays etc. so as to avoid someone inadvertently grabbing the wrong orange shotgun thinking it's theirs .

Now before you guys start jumping on poor ol' 9HP I'm not opposed to tape on firearms if it's functional. I have "skate board" type tape on all of my Hi-Powers :

Revolver Everyday carry Air gun Gun barrel Wood


Air gun Trigger Gun barrel Gun accessory Airsoft gun


but certainly not on any of my shotguns :

.

Why would I ? Why would anyone ?

Looks like it's about to erupt all over some woodcock
Just curious - what's the gauge and choking on that guitar ? When hunting with it is a battery pack suggested or a long extension cord ? Given her dress , or lack thereof in your video I'd think she'd have a tough time in the briars and brambles of most grouse/woodcock covers :dizzy: and probably come back covered with a lot of tics. Just sayin'馃槈 .

Blueing is outdated and not up with the times.
If you're a responsible gun owner and learn to take care of your firearms you wouldn't be overly concerned with that sort of thing.

This photo of my Red Label was taken just about ten years ago last month and I had already owned it probably four or five years before that and it has been hunted hard .

This is the receiver of my Remington M11 Sportsman that was built about 1936 - 86 years old . There is no reason to believe that this isn't the original finish - no beveling on the receiver or most important the screw heads "

Take your shotgun to Guns Galore in Fenton and tell them how it's on the cutting edge of firearm technology and custom re-finished to look like some baggy panted R & R freak' s electric guitar and see how much they offer you for it.

It's about steel and walnut - not plastic and aluminum.

I wish I could get away with using such weapons. I duck hunt around 30 days a year, from September goose teal skeeter hunts to red dawn geese. Including jump shooting and layout. I like the black guns. I had a camo, cost me geese when I leaned it on a cornstalk to move decoys, birds snuck in, couldn鈥檛 find it.
There is much validity to your post but the OP was writing about his grouse gun. I assume you eventually found your shotgun. :confused1: .

9 MM has reported you to the Ruffed Grouse Society and they鈥檒l be on their way as soon as they finish lacing up their knee high russell moccasin boots.
Actually I was a founding member of the Detroit area RGS a goodly number of years ago and again years ago for a while wrote the Lansing chapter's newsletter.

At the risk of making 9 mm's head completely explode, here is the 2022 Luckydog grouse gun line up.
